a good place.

Standard

what a lovely little place

discovered on a walk in the woods

nestled beneath the old trees

resting on a blanket

of the softest pine needles

open to all who happen by

who lives here?

“when you’re wide open, the world is a good place.”

-sharon salzberg

bridge.

Standard

how lovely it would be

to walk across this little bridge each day

 leave the busy world behind

to enter once again

 the quiet calm called home.

“praise the bridge that carried you over.”

and on the last night they’ll ever spend

in the only house they’ve ever lived

before moving to their wonderful new location for their wonderful new adventures

we celebrate by finally getting to eat in the living room without sneaking.

“your journey never ends. life has a way of changing things in incredible ways.

-alexander volkov

and along came olive.

Standard

tiny olive

with green eyes of two different colors

just six pounds never to grow any bigger

came into my life

quite unexpectedly 

found in the caboose of a train

a teenage mother

rescued by kind humans

and

soon to move

into to my home and family

with patience and time and space
in the little cottage
olive the cat not the oil
so sweet and playful
met
glenn frey the cat not the rocker
so reserved and timid
and they soon found a way
to peacefully co-exist
watching the world go by together.
“peace puts forth her olive everywhere”
-william shakespeare

laughter is the sun.

Standard

as the snowfall arrives

there is a soft quiet

a world of white outside

while inside

 the cottage is filled with color 

 the center of the snow globe

 i’m clearly drawn to whimsical animal art

and yes,

that is the wing of a  peacock kite you see in the upper left corner.

“laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

-victor hugo
