I wanted to add that I love this post.
Something about coyotes that sticks out for me is that they are the gauges for imbalance. Because they live so close to humans they are a good barameter for when things have fallen out of balance. For instance, In Montana right now they are having a very hard time with an overpopulation of coyotes. Part of that is current practices with farming but the other part is that humans have killed off so many wolves.

With my ramble I guess I want to add that this card is also about balance. Allowing the inner mischif to comeout once in awhile but not letting it run amuck over our lives.
