I love keeping an eye on the wild creatures in the neighborhood, and I don’t mind admitting I have a favorite. I noticed this little dude in a tree’s knothole last summer and now I look for him each time I pass by. I haven’t seen him for a few days. We got a lot of snow and, for a few days, the knothole was overflowing with the stuff. Looks like it melted and Owlbertson (as Ethan named him) was able to get back in there. Good thing, because we are supposed to have another storm tonight. He needs to get his rest!

And…. extreme close-up!

About Rachel Lewis

I am a writer, ceramic artist, knitter, and new stepparent. As a playwright, I had six short plays produced in showcases and festivals in Manhattan, Salt Lake City, and Austin. My full-length play, Locking Doors, was presented by Wordsmith Theatre Company in The New Lab Theatre (University of Utah) in 2005. I co-wrote a teleplay titled “Thank God I’m Atheist” which won the 2015 “No God But Funny” contest founded by the Center for Inquiry. My short nonfiction essay, “It’s Coming Down,” was published by the online literary magazine Halfway Down the Stairs. I currently work in pharmaceuticals professionally and write recreationally, but dream of making the transition to write professionally and do pharmaceuticals recreationally. I am a Utah native and live in Salt Lake City with my Yorkshire terrier, Wensleydale Doggiepants. I am working on a collection of humorous non-fiction essays and a second full-length play.
