I am sometimes poetic.
Sometimes profound.
Sometimes amusing-
Fun to be around
Sometimes useful
Sometimes clear.
But tonight I'm
Not one of those things, I fear.

March 6

oh so gently, gracefully
she pawed at my leg
and I a little father up
in the hierarchy of needs
knew she wanted affection
she jumped up and faced the other way
and I saw in this
a need for companionship
and a simultaneous desire
for independence.
I was struck by the depths of feeling
this pup was capable of
Until I looked where she was looking.

Her water dish was empty.

And when I filled it,
She was complete.
And I
was jealous.

Looking for green.
Looking for the scent of sprinklers,
of morning rain.
Listening for
the sound of cicadas that will
creep me out and get on my last nerve
come September.
Looking for sunlight lingering until
it actually is night
rather than afternoon.
Pulling on my gloves,
heading out into the cold rain
with my chin tucked under.
I'm looking for You.

February 21

Little dog. Little legs.
Big dreams of
Creativity, Hope, Newness, and Strength
in every day.

February 20

Girl night tonight with the two in the foreground to relax, be pampered and laugh about husbands, boyfriends, daughters and ourselves. Amazing how time changes things... yet the essential connections are secure.
Picture taken 3 years ago.

Febuary 18

Warmth , water and time.
I will hope in Christ
Who is all these things
and Who causes growth and transformation.

Febuary 16

My lovely girl. How has this happened? How has roundness transformed so quickly and before my eyes, it seems, into this lithe, tall creature? She is eight, and my heart stops each time I realize it. Of course I don't want her to stay a baby forever. Of course. I love what she is growing into. Of course she must grow. I just need each day to be a thousand years long.

Welcome to a picture and some words.
That's the idea
and hopefully,
the regular practice.
Here we go!
