Frayed

Our boy Dougal Dog
has had three operations on his one eye this past week!
Poor boy we feel so sorry for him, we have to apply drops five times a day too!



Somehow he managed to rub the first stitches loose despite this huge collar! A different vet applied new stitches under sedation, they pulled through the third eyelid this time despite our vigilant watch! Could have been a faulty technique so they haven't charged for the third op. Yesterday he had more surgery, we now take it in turn for Dougal Duty, we have to be aware of his every move, a moment ago I turned my back for one second and he somehow got his back paw inside this cone, I feel sick every-time I check his eye in-case it happens again, my nerves are raw!

We are also on flood watch here, we had the furniture off of the floor last night on the table top,
we spent the whole evening checking the stream levels.

My girl continues to make progress with her own health issues but because we are all here confined with these continual crises, we rub shoulders with each other and sometimes there's a chaffing.

At the moment life seems pants, sucks whichever way I view it!
There I got it off my chest!!!

However, I don't want to leave you on a sour note,
that would never do, they say in the dark there is always "a crack for the light to enter" ~ Cohen 


































So here's my crack,
my light,
 my escape route,
not the wine of-course the camera,
all the same a little drop does help with frayed nerves!

peace to you Sue

love and light
Oh my goodness! Poor dog. Poor you! I remember having to take care of our elderly sick cat (19 years old), hand feeding him baby food every two hours through the night - and day... I was frazzled most of the time, not knowing what to do for the poor thing. I hope you all survive your ordeal. It is hard taking care of a pet, *and* have all this other chaos going on in your life at the same time!

Oh go ahead, have the whole glass! :) lol...

poor dougal, 3 ops no less!

it must be so stressful, and tiring, to be on constant flood watch. moving furniture, etc. concerned for your nest.

may you guys stay dry - flood, not wine ;)

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
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…
