What? I am meditating! Is there anything better than window light? Of course, Hobbs using my meditation mat and re-tasking it for his purpose. I’ve seen many flash photos taken by those who are exceptionally good with them, but I think that window light beats them every time. I think that it might have to do with the imperfections of the light, perhaps dirt on the window, blinds in the way, whatever. There’s just something special about that light. And…

To say that Hobbs has an slight aversion to water would be, shall we say, a huge understatement. He accepts it as something to drink. He will stay still long enough to take a short bath, but doesn’t like it, but other than that, water has absolutely no use for him. On our morning walks, people usually have their sprinkler systems going. Hobbs walks on my left; we always walk the opposite direction of traffic, with him safely away from…

A boy and his dog Well, age-wise, I’m no longer a boy, but a heart, I am. Just a photo from this morning’s walk with my buddy, Hobbs. I really do enjoy these early morning walks with him while the sun is coming up. It’s so peaceful, quiet, and I get to see lots of sights in the morning that don’t seem to be available later on. I can almost count on seeing bluebirds sitting on mailboxes and on the…

Though I did not brave the icy streets in my car, like my friend Earl did on his Winter Tour; I don’t have a four-wheel drive. I did go for a walk this morning with Hobbs, of course. The temperature was about 15° F, but the sun was shining brightly. I did have fun watching Hobbs slip and slide on the ice. I saw him take several nose-first dives to the ice. He’s short, so not to far to go…

The other day, I was thinking that it was almost time for our annual snowfall. I went back through my photos of the last few years, looked at the dates of the snowfalls, and determined that the snow would fall sometime between 1/20 and 2/1. I promptly forgot about it. Yesterday, I looked at the forecast for Charlotte and saw that they were calling for a “Wintery Mix”. In general, this means snow and sleet. As I was riding along…

Heading east for a short while! Though he probably doesn’t remember it, I made Hobbs a promise. I promised that the next time that he visited, I would take him to the beach. Vera, Tony, and Hobbs are with me over the New Year’s weekend. Yesterday morning, Hobbs and I decided to go to the beach. When we walked out of the door, we were greeted with an icy blast of wind and treated to a bit of art left…
