I went upstairs on Saturday afternoon and found Fred peacefully sleeping in what had been Ben's bed. I'd noticed Ben downstairs on the couch, but that they had exchanged places (or more likely, Fred just took over Ben's spot and Ben adjusted accordingly) didn't occur to me until I was taking their pictures. I love… Continue reading “I distinctly remember forgetting that.”
Luke is our big, long-haired German Shepherd. He is a goofy, loveable guy who makes the most of his life with 6 cats, none of whom want to play with him. He was born different...he didn't even look like the other puppies in the litter, and by the time he was 6 weeks old, he… Continue reading Dissolving the fear in our minds
I was reading a book yesterday and the writer said that she had been, years ago, invited to the Royal palace for dinner. I always wondered how anyone could feel hungry in such a formal setting with such good (fitted) clothes on. I really appreciate beauty and elegance and would love the idea of being… Continue reading Thanksgiving…finding comfort in being ourselves
I have just about finished my cashmere blanket. The largest surface that I have to work on is the living room floor, so making this blanket has been interesting...I've had lost of help!

We found it so uplifting. Jane Hirshfield, a Zen Buddhist and a poet, who was one of the commentators throughout the film said… Continue reading Buddha?
I first noticed Noah, 9 years ago. It was the summer of 2002 and all I saw was a flash of orange and white darting across Rt. 29 (a very winding and fast road). I knew that it was a cat, but didn't know anything about him except that he didn't belong to our neighbors.… Continue reading Are you listening Mary?
Over the past week, a number of people have emailed me, that they haven't been getting these posts. Something changed with WordPress and the posts that are coming through, are a different page format also. This has given me pause. When I started writing my blog, I knew nothing about blogs or sites that hosted… Continue reading Are we there yet?
Travelling to cities for me is a big deal and truthfully, I just don't like them....I want to like them. I want to say how exhilarating it is being in a cultural center, but my entire being is generally saying something different like, "Get me out of here!" There is a line from the movie… Continue reading I’m ok
I was sitting in a chair a few weeks ago and Fred (one of our cats) jumped up onto my lap and flipped head up (as he usually does) to take a nap. Luke came over to investigate and I loved the way Fred just kept his eyes closed (probably hoping Luke would go away!).… Continue reading trust and forgiveness
