attention.

Standard

i get the feeling olive is in need of a bit more attention from me.

above, olive tries to add herself

into the frida self-portrait puzzle

disguising herself

as the 4th animal in the picture

a bird, a monkey, and now,

2 black cats instead of 1.

below, olive tries to add herself

into a cable news show

disguising herself

as the special guest co-host.

just a hunch.

attention.

Standard

when we set out on our hike 

to see what spring animals

were out there

we thought maybe

we’d see a bear

awakening from a long winter’s nap

though we most likely 

scared any creature

who happened to be in our oncoming path

or most anywhere in the vicinity

with our marching and laughing and yelling and jumping

and then

we looked closer

and at last

found an animal

passed over by many

who was not afraid of us

just waiting to to be discovered 

a single ant.
