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.

“today is one of those excellent January partly cloudies in which light 

 chooses an unexpected part of the landscape to trick out in gilt,

and then the shadow sweeps it away. you know you’re alive. you take huge steps,

trying to feel the planet’s roundness arc between your feet.”

what a beautiful morning to help

at the annual

juvenile diabetes research foundation event

and

 to take a great walk after

 right in the mix with

dogs, babies, strollers, scooters, families,

friends, teams, singles, wagons and trees

and then come to the end

very happy to have been a part of it all.

they say

clothes don’t make the man

but

a fashion-forward rotweiller

on a gray, rainy day

strolling among the humans

to raise money

for

type 1 diabetes research

in her ballet-soft tutu

sure shows some

style and class.

age and size are only numbers.

it’s the attitude you bring to clothes

that makes the difference.
