New Years Day

City Snow-ebo Gallery

Welcome 2010! Snowy and chilly outside while were settled in warm and content. In the background I can hear the sound of radiators giving off heat. The dogs are curled up having a snooze, steaming cup of coffee in my hand, breakfast cooking in the kitchen, a quiet sleeping neighborhood and a feeling of well being in my heart. Life feels here and now and just right. Jamaica was calm and restful. Hey mon, no problem! Gorgeous beaches, inviting and smooth ocean water and a warm sun. This little journey was exactly what a holiday is meant to be, relaxing. My little foray to the Caribbean gave me time to decompress and reflect. I am content with my personal state of affairs. I have no resolutions for the new year, nothing to radically re change or make new or different or better. Time to just to continue on with life. I feel it would serve me well to take each day as one and concentrate on the small things, breaking down my many projects to smaller more accessible tasks. My struggle with over maxed appointment books, overextended scheduled and an over obligated life cannot be solved in one year or in one resolution. One day at a time, one task at a time, one breath at a time, everything else is optional. aaahhhhh.

Blessing in the New Year to everyone.

Just one more

I was going to post Adam Sandlers Hanukkah song just for fun when I stumbled upon this, just a good vibe sort of moment. The kids are from the PS22 chorus in New York City. 70 fifth grade students, jewish, gentile, atheist or whatever. I like that very much....... enjoy

Happy Hanukkah

First Snow

Snow angels

White side walks
untouched by feet
Calling for the waiting children
in all of us

To lay in its perfection
To make tributes to our
every watching guardians

Becoming one with
a feeling of belonging
in a universe full of mysteries

Look at earths creation
meshed with your own
until shovels
or spring blooms

Snow angels
more than fun
its life

The Art of Racing in The Rain

To my beloved Cisco and all canines I have known who have brought such bliss and meaning to my life.

The Art of Racing in The Rain by Garth Seth chronicles one family's story as told through the eyes of their dog, Enzo. We are first introduced when his owner Denny Swift returns from work to find Enzo lying on a kitchen floor in a pool of urine, trying with increased panic to stand, mortified and determined to retain dignity. Enzo nearing the end begins his story, reflecting the personal meaning of this lifetime. He started as a young pup living with Denny in Seattle Washington. Denny has a vision of succeeding in the world of race car driving. They daydream of moving to a location closer to the action, perhaps even Europe. He and Enzo are well suited for each other and spend many happy hours watching races on TV, running in the park and letting the world unfold in all it's many splendid ways. Soon Eve enters, and their lives shift and expand to three, then four, with a little girl named Zoe. Dreams are replaced by a sweet reality, followed by ups, downs, tears, laughter, inconceivable events and heart wrenching outcomes. The Art of Racing in the Rain is one family members perspective while trying to come to terms with dramatic personal changes, family dynamics and the reality of adult life. For anyone who has ever loved a dog this is an exceptionally moving read.

In Memoriam

It's been one whole year since you left.
You are so dearly missed.
Not a day goes by without missing you, feeling your absence.
It's not the same without you.
You are always in my heart, my soul.
my sweet Mr. Snufaloveagus.
October 10, 1995- December 2, 2008
