My desk is next to a window, which is to say, the opposite side of my desk meets up with a large window. Just outside the window is a large fig tree which has just put out little leaves, promises of the giant leaves that will soon cover the tree and shade my desk. As I sit here, I see a little creature sitting on a branch. His little legs and feet are peach-colored. His head is brown - and I see he has streaks of brown on his green chest.* He looks to be nearly three feet tall and about 36 pounds. His socks and shoes are neatly stacked on the grass and he's got an airplane in his hand. I think I'll take him a granola bar for a snack. He's a keeper.

*His preschool class used brown paint today to paint ant hills.
