My day so far was to get up– take the dogs to the woodsy park where I drank my coffee and chatted with the owner of Gussie . . funny how you learn all the dog names but none of the owner names– as we strolled through the pine needled paths.
From there we headed over to the open grassy area next to Brown Stadium where Daisy fell in love with a bounding one-year old yellow lab named Ruxin— I should tell you about Henry who fell HARD (read: smitten) for a 5 month old puppy named Greta– but oh man— now I am headed to the train station to pick up my niece Kate who is coming down for the day from Cambridge. Hope she doesn’t mind we have to stop and get groceries on the way back to the apartment since I was gonna do that last night but instead went out to dinner with Christine and little V and now there’s no avoiding the fact that groceries must be procured– stat.
All of which to say– things are evermore full-out with good stuff but hell if I haven’t let my cameras go cold.
Soon soon — I have a plan to walk about with NO dogs pulling on me– with only my cameras slung easily across my shoulders and spend hours gathering up some shots—
In other news— life feels so good. Crazy. I know– but I just want to go on record because I know how the tide shifts and changes– but right now? I am walking the walk and talking the talk of how to keep the mind chatter focused on all that is, not judging anything– simply seeing what is— and anytime there is beauty, well soaking that stuff right up.
Result? I wakes up, and everything feels that much softer, that much brighter.
P.S.– yes, I see that typo up there on “wakes” up and I could correct it, but hell if I don’t like it somehow– a bit of goof in an otherwise mundane laundry list of a post.
