Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers

WM Shadow Spirit Art.jpeg

Seasons flutter past; I’ve lost count of the days. Was that the year of the big blizzard? Or was it after the old gelding retired?

These are the things that I do remember: Sweetness. Light easing to dusk. And a certain comfort that there are chores to be done.

They say age is only a number but I wonder if those who left us early would agree.

    Love the picture – and the comment! Watching two different animals taking comfort from each other is a joy, isn’t it? (I realize this is a moment – possibly not how they get along 24/7!!!!!

    Agree with Anna and all comments. I wonder how Anna manages to get such perfect pictures? She really captures the moment, doesn’t she?

    1. Well, like I say, I use my phone. Sometimes I marvel, too. I usually get them while I’m mucking and they are just themselves. They don’t change for me. Gotta love that.

  5. I’ve been learning to live more in the now (after 16 years of being a professional pet and service dog trainer). And although I think I’ve done it life long, as I get older, more and more I stop and marvel at perfect moments. They are usually around the simplest of pleasures and live etched in a flow of appreciating each one as it floats along…I really loved this picture and post.

    The older I get, the more I live in the moment and notice when a perfect moment alights. And usually it has to do with some visceral awareness of something simple and pure. This was a great post. Thank you.
