What started as decorations to hang from the ceiling in my father's room when he had dementia became favorite toys of my cat. She somehow found several of them and busies herself carrying them from room to room. I sometimes would come home from work and find them carefully arranged at the front door to greet me as I arrived. While v was ill she would line them up next to his side of the bed. We considered them cat charms by then. One morning, recently, I found one placed on my chest as I awoke. I took it as a kind of blessing, or cheering up gift.
We have many forms of friends, and angels come in many guises.
This is what I love about looking at the surface of the sea...imagining what might be just below the surface and beyond. It's all so very precious and so very vulnerable, as are we all. What can we do to protect them and ultimately ourselves?
A chance shot and new friends. Above is my favorite shot from the winter band concert at Monterey Peninsula College. Tonight when I went to shoot their spring concert I was greeted like an old friend from several of the band members. r is a retired physics teacher and plays the baritone sax for the band. Thank you v for getting me this camera!
It's been HOT here and the lettuce is threatening to bolt! Always plenty to share around the neighborhood and with friends. Slime free thanks to the possums who live in the old car shed behind the fence. We discovered where they were living when our elderly neighbor sold her father's '59 International pick up truck. When she and the buyers pulled a cover off the bed they discovered a family of possums had been living there. The truck is gone, but the possums seem to have found another room in the shed since they are still foraging in this garden. I am so pleased. Ciao, Bello!
