Well, I was trying to take the lazy way out and just post some pictures and a couple of poems but the universe (or at least blogger or maybe Google chrome) seems bent on making it very complicated. Things are coming out blue and/or underlined and I keep trying to take out the coding which has appeared for no reason that I understand and it keeps coming back, so it is taking me forever to do it the easy way. The Universe is no piker in how it deals with cheaters. I have no idea why the text (except for the captions) is different colors. Baffled. Totally. Sigh. By the way, if you click on the pictures you can see them larger. I don't know if this improves them, but they will be bigger.
He's sort of homely and gawky and makes me think
of a book by Norman Rockwell that was called
WILLIE WAS DIFFERENT about a thrush who
sang his own song much to the consternation of
his fellow thrushes... Sorry this is such a long caption.
My friend Dan came by today and did me two great kindnesses. He found a bunch of Angel's lost toys (happy kitty) and he washed my front window and back door, so it no longer looks like my photos have been shot through fog. Ah... and the back yard was in an exceptionally generous mood. I almost posted 20 pictures but controlled myself and saved some for later. So anyway, no great or small words of wisdom or ponderous efforts at deep thinking.... just poetry, photos and gratitude.
Not a great photo, but isn't that wing awesome?
Who knew the flicker was hiding that beautiful yellow?
The answer is believingBeingThere is no powerBut the joy ofEvolvingOf lighting the worldNot with answersBut with questionsMoving in the circle of eternityFlowing in the trinity of timeWhich does not existPast-present-futureOne in the sameLinkedLike the droplets of a waveSeparable and inseparableInexplicableUnfathomableMystical and magicalCalling to the eye of the heart- Katherine E. Rabenau
It is not the knowing which mattersBut the seeking afterThe need to see the dark side of the moonTo touch the bottom of the seaThe answer always seems a little paleA little disappointingBeside the miracle of curiosityBut the riddle teases on and onAnd we forgetThat only the questions are real.- Katherine E. Rabenau
Some things I'm grateful for today:
clean windows and back door
my kind friend Dan
Angel and Tara Grace
my back yard
This bunny was so sweet and came close enough
for some good pictures. He sat for quite a while -
even in the pouring rain at one point before
hopping off. The hopping off photos aren't
very good, but I liked the "action" in it.
and large and small miracles.
