Each time we observe wolves kill a moose, and after they finish feeding from the carcass and leave, then we snowshoe to these kill sites to perform a necropsy on the moose and collect wolf scats that have been deposited around the site.

Like most of us, I still haven't figured it all out (does that ever really happen to anyone?

my love for you is a stampede of horses.

Open Culture In a classic essay of Joan Didion’s, “Goodbye to All That,” the novelist and writer breaks into her narrative—not for the first or last time—to prod her reader. She rhetorically asks and answers: “…was anyone ever so young? I am here to tell you that someone was.”
