Animalsandicons really began about 12 years ago when I was falling in love
with my wife Kathy. She lived at the time in an artist community
bordering the Palisade State Forest. I would come visit from New York City where I was living in an East Village shoebox apartment. Driving out of the City she would point out Red Tail Hawks perched in trees edging the highway. I could never spot them with my city slicker vision. But one day I had had enough and made my complaint known to the universe, "Why can't I ever see these damn birds?" Suddenly a hawk flew right by the car and I even believe it turned its head to look in at us. "Holy ****" I cried, that was amazing. Inwardly I said a prayer of thanks and asked that this intimate journey with nature might continue. And surely it has to this day.
My wife and I now live in the Deep Woods of North…
