On the lawn last night around 8:30 or so, sitting in a camping chair with Gus on my lap, I noticed him glancing suddenly off to the right, as if something were moving about in the dark. I thought I also heard something, so I turned on my flashlight. Through the beam a rather large bat abruptly flew, heading south. I turned off the flashlight and I watched as the bat spiraled up towards the lambent moon, which softly glowed under a thin veil of cloud from behind the tulip tree. It was a marvelously poignant Halloween image, this rather large bat flickering moonward into the shadowy drooping branches of the tulip tree whose leaves lightly trembled in a damp whisper of a breeze.
