I was re-visiting some images that I took at the Lizard Lounge ‘soft opening’ when I stumbled on these two. On a day when plans set in place tumbled suddenly…I needed to remember…

A subtle shift in focus can change the vision. What once looked absolutely to be one way and one way only suddenly has new texture.. new dimension...new life…new possibilities.

The ‘thing’ has not changed…only how I viewed it.

Today I am choosing to re-focus and see the potential.

a bit of me

Did you know that you can taste colors? Did you know that ripeness comes in a moment and is gone just as quickly?

Did you know that the heart will heal? Did you know?

Did you know that a moment frozen in time can make you cry… laugh.. or bring you to stillness? Can make your heart race, give it pangs, cause it to weep or have it leap from your chest and swell to say, “yes..YES…love exists!”

There are many paths to the heart. For me, the visual.. movement, art, a line, connection, trash someone tossed aside, that is my brilliance. That is what makes my days livable. That is what allows me to breathe.

Now marry that with music…with action, actors, locations and I am again transported. Given to fits of delight and anxiety, fear and pain, laughter and joy.

In one moment, an ache to reach out and stroke a tender cheek, a longing to hold the one that is wounded or rage at the one who did the wounding.

A well choreographed movie will take you where you didn’t know you could go. Will make you feel what you didn’t know you could feel. Will open you to a life you didn’t know existed two hours before.

Did you know that you can taste colors....that the soft tones washed over life make it what it is... cast a shadow over our days and bring out the flavor?

Did you know that orange is a feeling?

Did you know that I loved you?

a hard days nap

They work hard these furry children of mine. The stress they endure day in day out. Entertain the humans, groom, fluff about, eat, nap, fluff, sleep, groom, rest, eat, snooze... It's a break neck schedule that they strictly adhere to.

This all day cuddle Mosh is what I came home to today. If napping were a sport, Oliver would win every event. Only a snack comes between him and his s'naps.

And yes, they love each other. Snuggling Oliver's tummy is Synnies favorite.

They will be 12 years old in June and I have made a deal with them, they only need to live until 100 and I'll shower them with love every day. Really not too much to ask.

oliver working hard

yes, I'm still sleeping

Then his brother joined in. My little miss-matched book ends.

'hey, watch the paws!"

"oh this brother of mine...."

"OK we're done...go away now."
