Lions, Dogs & Deer but No Black Squirrel Yet: Everyday Magic, Day 81

Today at the Koester Museum, where I’ll be giving a reading tonight, I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of marvelous mammals, and so statuesque too! I haven’t found the famous black squirrels yet, but I’m determined. In the meantime, I’m happy to discover there are all kinds of critters and angels guarding the historic Koester Museum, built by a banker for his family and completed in 1876. The inside is pretty snazzy too, but for now, let us admire the wildlife remembered in stillness and gold, still guarding this elegant home in sunshine and shadow.

One thought on “Lions, Dogs & Deer but No Black Squirrel Yet: Everyday Magic, Day 81

  1. Koester House has always had an aura about it that’s difficult to describe. Not haunted but homey, as if the residents had just wandered out to the back garden and were due back any minute. It was, however, the perfect venue for your poetry reading, and the golden light spilling from the candelabra warmed the room as if in harmony with your words. A luminous evening.
