Pause, Breathe, and Take Stock:  2017-27

I can hardly believe I’ve been a photo-journalist for over 2 years, now, and I’ve been consulting at Adello for 20 weeks.  My oh my, my life has changed since I became retired.  My life is busier than ever.  And I’m still packing in plenty of fun.  Let’s see… here, in no particular order are just a few highlights from my week. We got two new Koi for the water garden.  Yes, the heron finally got the two we had for ten years. The babies each nearly lept out of the tank at the store, earning them the names: Leapininski…

Joyce did yoga every evening on the beach. It was harder than you might think.  The shifing sand underfoot, the undulating horizon, and the occasional gusts challenged even the best yogis’ balance. That was just the start for Joyce.   The tweee of the gulls, the frenzied scurry of sandpiper, and the occasional soft-shell crab, snipped and peeled her concentration.  The own internal chatter refused to quiet: unending to-do lists, what-if, and when-is, snagged her heart center and toppled her tree pose. That’s when she saw the bottle. And the note, of course.  The bottled washed in and out with…

Today, To find out more click here. I live over there.  Across from where you all catch the train, in your suits and ties and fancy back packs with padded shoulder straps in every color of the rainbow.  Except the rainbow is brighter.  Your colors are a rainbow through dark grey clouds. I up there now, watching through the slits in the almost-closed Venetian blinds.  There. Above Cafe Rustica.  Look up. Or look down.  I left a message for you.  Right there under you feet. Every night, or should I say morning, cuz it’s sometime after 1:00 AM, John comes…

Each Friday,  To find out more click here. Stephani tried to explain to the Jane why she had to leave. “This is my summer home,” he said.  “Always was, always will be.” “Well, my family migrated across an entire ocean,” said Jane.  ” That’s how we sparrows roll.  We’re adventurers.” “Juncos like things the same. That’s why we’ve been coming here for centuries.” “How do you know what Juncos did centuries ago?”  Jane put her beak it the air and flitted her tail.  “You have a brain smaller than a wheat seed.” “Have you never heard of imprints?” Stephani ruffed…

Each week for 2017, To find out more click here. Scout and Meowgi waited all day for Goldy, their only sister, to return.  “She’s been gone a long time,” Scout moped.  Scout knew Meowgi spent most nights outside, hunting.  As for Scout, he was only allowed into the fenced yard.  Meowgi slinked under the fence, or on warm nights jumped up and sat on the fence post crooning at a full moon.  Scout could do neither of these things, so he contented himself with what he freedom he had, and looked forward to long walk with Mother.  He tolerated the…

“Eugenia, you’re must get the kids on board,” Simon said, scurrying along the baseboard and squeezed under the sink. “I’m trying, but they’re hungry,” said Eugenia.  She rolled her eyes, but Simon missed it. She’d already turned her head toward her nursing litter and nuzzled her runt toward an empty teat. “We’re never getting out of here, if we don’t take a more systematic approach.” Simon stood on his hind legs and pulled a loose piece of veneer from the corner.  Simone, his first borne, his namesake, clambered onto his back and sank her teeth into a hirer piece of…

Worth a 1,000 Words:  Teaching pups new tricks

Don’t worry, the orchard allowed us all the tasting we wanted.  And, we ate every apple we tasted. Sometimes it’s really good for stay-at-home moms to get a job and let Grandma go on field trips.  Just sayin’.   Did you look twice at the boys?  Yes, mirror-image twins, Misters R&R, and Miss K.  They are three of CeCi’s five children. What’s in your lens this week?  I’d love to take a peek.  Please hop on over to Pierced Wonderings and see what the pros and near pros are up to.  Beautiful fall photos over there.  I promise you won’t…
