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

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
