*At the end of a long (how time morphs!) day full of medical stuff to sit on the grey deck watching the dogs cavort under the trees and on the turf. Luxuriating in their simplicity and vigor.
*It is sunflower season-so many varieties. The house is once again hidden behind a forest of tall swaying plants. I muse about the rolling seasons of various plants.
*While organizing my office I find photos of the dogs when they were puppies and I had just brought them home able to fit in the palm of my hand. Remembering again why I fell in love with them.
