A view at dusk....
With a heavy heart I come to you again with news of another passing. Our good old dog, Shady, went to her final rest today. We praise God for all her years of friendship and find comfort knowing she has gone to run with her old pack -- Bo, Friendly, and the others -- in green fields and sunshine.
She left us on an auspicious day - this eve before the full moon, the winter solstice, and on this crazy lunar eclipse. It reminds us of our trust in The Way of Things. That this turning of the season is a time to bury the grief from our recent hard losses and turn toward the light and spring. It reminds of the cycle of life - that Kai and her puppyness is our joy as much as loosing Shady is our sorrow.
Perhaps it was "just coincidence" that today I received some very kind comments about the work we do here on our little farm and our funny little life. So I wanted to say thanks to everyone for their well wishes, comments, and just plain good ol' times we have here. Thanks for stopping by and just saying hello. Life can be hard but its better when you know we are all in it together.
Now come on everybody, I think if we all go outside and jump up and down really hard we can get this old earth tilted back the other way toward the light..and get it moving toward longer days, warmer nights, and the first greening of spring.
Who's with me?
