Wonderful surprise

This mixed media portrait of Opie arrived yesterday.
My friend,  Jan, made it for us. It'll be framed this week
and hung in a place of love here. Jan captured his
personality. Thank you, my friend!

Well said

I offer this beauty for all of our spirits. Our political system
seems not to be working lately for all the people. And I see no
viable solutions out there, only fierce hatreds and closed minds.
Terry Windling says it well here;

I agree with her insight that we must continue to make beauty in
the way we can. Goodness will know how to find us.
if we do good. Jon Katz says it well here;

We can be more powerful than hate.
We can make beauty, be kind, do goodness. And vote.

A good, good dog

Opie has left us. 
Our hearts hurt.
He was a good, good dog.
Lucky us to  have lived with  him for 14 years.

Before the storm-After clearing out

This IS after clearing out. I think I stopped too soon.

Now I can sew without setting up the machine.
We're waiting to see where Florence decides to land.

We remember Isabel when we evacuated with 2 cats and 3 large dogs.
Got the last motel room in Danville. Only emergency electricity and
folks roaming the low lit halls with guns in holsters.
We'll stay put this time with our small dog.
