Illusions We Allow Ourselves

Watching the Sunrise With My Kolo

“Dogs, lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you're going to lose a dog, and there's going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can't support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There's such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”

amazing day

 I went away for awhile and came back to Fall colors...
 Waiting for the sun to rise above the clouds... Look at the sky!

"i thank You God for most this amazing 
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; 
and for everything
which is natural 
which is infinite which is yes
~ e.e. cummings

 that nobody need wait
a single moment
before starting to improve the world."
