They thought I was dying

I was visiting my mom in late August, and lolling about on the school yard behind her house. The air was perfect. The buffalo grass beneath me felt good....dry and wiry. The sky above me a clear bowl of blue. I lay flat on my back, my arms stretched out. It was bliss.

But the next thing I knew, these turkey vultures started circling overhead. Did they know something I didn't?

It was kind of eerie....  


  1. It was just recently that I realized those vultures follow me when I go out for a run. I try not to take it as an insult re: my pace, but...

  2. Ha ha! Naw, it couldn't be your pace. Must just be a coincidence. I'm sure they have their eye on someone else. They are patient birds though....
