They kept coming and coming – we have never had so many attending the Women’s Book Group on a Sunday morning at Grace Episcopal Church, Bainbridge Island, WA. This was the second Sunday of discussion on “Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help us Grow” by Elizabeth Lesser.
We were about halfway through the discussion when suddenly someone spotted a coyote on the grounds outside. I should point out that Bainbridge Island is a heavily wooded island in Puget Sound; wildlife is quite common around here. Generally coyotes are quite shy — during daylight at least — so this was unusual. He watched us through the picture windows, as we watched him back. Seeming satisfied with our mutual progress, the visitation was over, and the coyote, spirit of the wild, headed east back into the greening alder woods.
