I am at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio for a week for writers. I came to this event last year, but had to leave early due to a death in the family. On my way out last year, as I was walking to the parking lot where I had left my car, I had an encounter with this deer, who calmly watched me as if to say, "It's OK." As I drove off, she was still in the same place watching me.
Same deer? Who knows. It was a doe, and she remained as still as could be. I got out of my car and she walked away, her business done.
