Grateful for Canine Companions

I am grateful on this day, 
Monday, 20th December 2010, 
for
Canine Companions ~

My two boys 
Dougal&Jasper
have made many appearances
here on 'finding my bliss'
but how could I complete my gratitude 
without giving these boys
a mention? 


Dougal came into our lives
unexpectedly, at a time 
when we were experiencing turmoil!


His personality?
We say he is his 'own dog,'
knows what he wants and goes for it!
As a puppy he made his escape quite a few times. 
Sometimes when we go for a walk in the 
deserted local country park at night 
he will decide 'he's not going'
and puts the 'brakes on'
so we leave him,
he waits there
until
we return.
He's very stubborn, clever, sensitive and almost human!
He is totally loyal to me,
 keeps guard of me always.


Jasper, Dougal's offspring
on the other hand 
is a complete softy.

He's very obedient, always wants to be cuddled,
he loves you to sit holding his paw,
never strays from my side.

 

These two boys have brought me such pleasure,
every morning as I awake 
and lay stroking them
I think to myself
how 
grateful I am
they are in my life.
'BLISS'

dear sue,
i love how tender hearted you are. i have a sentinel too. a cat so spotted black and white he appears to be wearing cow pajamas. i am so grateful for his companionship. he is always willing to nap beside me when i am ill. purrrfect that he is always in his jammies and ready to sleep!
our pets are so much more than words convey.
reassuring us that we truly are never alone.

so glad for your happiness.....so grateful for you in my life.

I'm grateful for these canine companions also. They give us such pleasure. I am grateful that you give them a comfortable home, a dog-heaven when I sometimes can't because of my living and work arrangements. Love C xxx

Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
