A strange discovery in the woods today: footprints in the snow, tracing a circle about three feet in diameter. Not left by a child: the boots were large, the treads as thick as the ones on mine.
The snow still falls, and is deep, despite the fact that it is, technically, spring.
The footprints overlapped, tracing the same circle over and over, in a clear patch to the side of the trail. I admit I stood and stared at it for a long time.
Who would do that? Who would step in a circle like that?
I might never know.
