Not just nuisances: life lessons from deer and geese

 | 

The deer showed up three times last week. Being half Irish, and therefore always primed for “signs” -- mystical or otherwise -- I suspected they had something important to say, especially so close to Earth Day.

As it turned out, they did.

In one of their appearances, the deer came as bearers of grief, arriving April 19 through a Columbus Dispatch obituary.
