Be patient with me….you may have to put up with a few more sunsets than you’d care to see…Once again, no tripod….I’ll never learn….just adjusted the exposure and removed some dust…otherwise….what you see is what you get, Zannyro doing everything in too big of a hurry.
Here’s a close-up of those “pretend” lightning bolts…
There’s just something about green and white…it’s so spring…this isn’t really sharp enough, but once again, I like it anyway. It makes me feel like I should run through the grass singing, or skipping, or doing cart-wheels. The smell from these trees, while they’re blooming like this is pretty much intoxicating. I inhaled so deeply to smell the fragrance, that I started to think that I might get light-headed and faint…well, it COULD happen you know. I once sniffed a Hershey bar so deeply that I did faint…well not really, but I think I did go into some kind of trance.
I had fun this afternoon. After too many hours of working on the computer, I needed a break, so I went over to visit Melvin and “The Boys”. Melvin is doing very well and tomorrow he’s going on an adventure with a friend of his. They’re going to go somewhere over in Amish Country to pick up some chickens for his friend and some “chicken nests”. I guess these are some kind of metal contraptions that hold the nest for the chicken and after they lay an egg, the egg rolls out into a little box type thingy…hopefully keeping the egg somewhat clean. ANYWAY…Joe gave me a moment of interest today..he came running at me and then stopped right in front of me to get a pat on the head…UNUSUAL!!
He also gave me this wonderful moment.
Veering sharply back on course after yesterday’s moment when the world got very real..and
we reflected on how evil moments can change us all.
Today I’m returning to the type of things that I find very real, things that I think change
us all….I know they change me…so if you don’t mind I’ll keep sharing things that I feel are beautiful and contain an immense power..
I think they have the power to open our hearts and enrich our souls.
For me they are things that make us better people, kinder people… that’s the kind of power that matters.
I’ve watched some videos recently that have been posted
about the tragedy that affected Japan just one year ago.
All one can think is: how fragile life is, how fragile life is.
How strong love is.
I have the highest respect for the survivors of this disaster and
the courage they display is beyond remarkable. The looks in the
eyes of those who were immediately affected that day…the
courage it takes for some to go on..I am humbled and wishing that
the sympathy and love that you feel in your heart for them could
go directly to their hearts…so that they could truly know that
others feel their pain, and wish they could take that pain away.
This blog entry was supposed to share some images with you that I
love. They are from moments in my life that I will always cherish.
The videos of Japan are a HUGE reminder to cherish those we love,
the good moments that we have, the blessings as we’re granted
another day to fill with love and hopefully laughter.
The last picture is of “Mama”, the star of my book…she is no longer
She will have a piece of my heart for ever and ever.
Here are some of my moments.
