Today’s Hug- 9th June 2020

For today’s hug I’m revisiting foxes. I wasn’t particularly happy with my pyrography attempt, so I decided to give them another try. I did worry that this wasn’t going right, typical of a fox it was a little tricky, but I think it came together in the end.
Considering I live surrounded by fields, I can probably on one hand count how many times I have seen a fox, which is a shame because they are lovely creatures and I could quite happily watch them all day. Considering they are from the same family as wolves, jackels and dogs, they actually have more in common with cats: they are most active at night, have eyes like a cat, retractable claws, spines on their tongues, sensitive whiskers and they can climb trees, which I’d definitely love to see. The most beautiful fact I read about foxes is that in Finland the Northern Lights are known as “revontulet”, meaning “fox fires”. The locals believe that the colourful swirls of light were made by an Artic fox running through the sky, swishing its big, bushy tail as it went, painting the sky with beautiful colours. I think we could all do with a bit of colour being painted into our lives; after looking at the same four walls for several months, we’re ready for a change. Hang in there everyone. Stay safex
