Orange Coyotes

Do you believe in signs? Animals, colors, words and phrases?  I usually overlook signs, meaning I recognize them, but I don't put a lot of thought into them. I seem to have made an exception recently.  The color of rust, like the leaf above, and coyotes keep jumping out at me.  In a way that almost startles me, like someone throwing an object at my face.

First I noticed the color.  A leaf here or there, the side of a building.  Every time the color would be more saturated.  This leaf for example, was spotted on a very brown road right in my path.  It was almost glowing. I searched for the birth tree in the tree line to my left and I could not spot it.  I have no idea the origin of this leaf.

Then I started seeing coyotes.  Relatively speaking, I live in the city, but I do have access to the country so it would not be uncommon for me to spot coyotes.  But what about one that is less than ten feet from me in a creek bed I was walking in?  Others running across fields in the  middle of the day.  In the city or in the country, it doesn't matter, I keep seeing them.

Urged by my friend Shannon, I decided to look up the color orange and coyotes to determine if they mean something or see if perhaps I am just going crazy.  My jaw dropped to the floor.  Between what is going on in my personal life and the goals I have set for myself this year, I do believe that an orange coyote should be my mascot this year.
