noontime ambivalence

driving down a back road i smelled it before i saw it. and there it was: a dead-by-the-side-of-the-road skunk. while i am certainly not a fan of roadkill (i brake for small animals) i was oddly encouraged to see this sight. to be dead-by-the-side-of-the-road, this skunk had to first have woken from hibernation. and that i believe would be sign of spring #5.

oh dear. at least there was some little point to the skunk's death.
