Luck of the Unicorn

The Unicorn Deer has been a frequent visitor in our back garden this winter. He was here at Thanksgiving and then again on the very first day of the New Year, he appeared early in the morning. He has returned three or four times since. Now he is travelling with two other bucks and a doe.

The Unicorn is the messenger of Luck, as he is the one horned knight of Lady Luck. A Unicorn in one's garden is indeed a very special gift, especially so on New Year's morning. Unicorns are symbols of good luck, purity and power and they are endowed with a very unique braveness. The old wives say that only a person who is pure in heart is able to see the Unicorn. For this reason he has remained a mythical creature for so long. No one seems to know where the unicorns came from, however, in ancient times they were about the land, bestowing luck and bravery. Now they are seldom seen.


  1. He looks a little skinny. What part of the world do you live in? The picture reminds me of a family farm in Arkansas, but I'm sure there are deer like that everwhere.

  2. Hi Ghostie, my back garden overlooks Pohick Creek in Northern Virginia. Yes, he is skinny - probably expending too much energy fighting other bucks. That is probably how he became a unicorn.

  3. For some reason, I suspected you were in Virginia. Maybe something you said previously.

    Now, if I could just get you to explain that cat picture thingy on your profile.

  4. If there were no mysteries in life, our minds would atrophy.

  5. That's the best answer I've ever heard. I can use it on any question. You must be a parent.
