I found these little shoes…forgotten…just after daybreak, at the beach.
Worn,torn,faded and dusted with sand, they’ve obviously covered lots of ground on the feet of their long-lost owner.
They’ve lost their golden luster but I find them enchanting. I look at them and wonder what their story is.
I imagine them with tiny dancing feet slipped into them.
I imagine them helping tiny feet chase the last of a wave as it races to leave the shore.
I imagine them toasty and warm from the warmth of the sun, wrapped around tiny feet and hugging them close.
I imagine them missing those tiny feet, now that they’ve gone and I imagine those tiny feet missing them.
I’ll put them in a tiny frame and keep them close, in honor of the stories they could tell.
BIRD ONE…… “HEY! DON’T LOOK, BUT ZANNYRO IS BACK THERE WITH THAT CAMERA AGAIN, STOP SPEAKING IN ENGLISH AND START MAKING BIRD GIBBERISH SOUNDS OR SHE’S NEVER GOING TO LEAVE US ALONE!.”
BIRD TWO……”GOT IT…’CAW! CAW! BREEEP! BREEEP! PUMPERNICKEL! PUMPERNICKEL!”
BIRD ONE……”NOT ‘PUMPERNICKEL, PUMPERNICKEL’…ONLY THE ‘CAW’ PART…DEAR LORD, WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL?”
How are all of you???????
I hope all is well and that those of you in Texas and the other states affected by the horrific weather have all come through it with no harm done.
I’ve never really been able to step away from the blog before, I love blogging, but a little time off was just what I needed…new sights, new sounds, new ideas and new things to share with all of you.
I believe I said that I was going to put the camera down for awhile…well THAT didn’t happen. Ran around like a loon sometimes, chasing sea life as it swam down the beach. Tried to snap lightning as long as I didn’t hear thunder…( if you can hear it, the lightning can come from a LONGGG way off and zap you.)
What else did I do? I spent a lot of time trying to resist the urge to eat chocolate. I did pretty well resisting the urge …but then I discovered a place that has amazing key lime cheesecake. THE GROCERY STORE!!!!
