Our much cooler than normal weather continues, now mixed with thunderstorms. Lucy has managed to get to the park almost every day and runs and runs and runs.
Whereas Ellie always stopped and posed for me, Lucy tries to avoid the camera. We laugh about the fact that she hardly looks at me when I want to take her picture. Perhaps she has heard the legends about photographs capturing some of one's spirit.
Purposefully ignoring me
And staring into space
Pretending there is something of interest under this bush
Our world is in turmoil right now. We desperately need to see change in our own country and around the world. More of us need to step up and get more involved.
Another quote for today comes from my favorite Lennon song:
"Imagine all the people living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us,
And the world will be as one."
Amid the suffering sent by Nature and by people, we should pause to think of our neighbor. And not just our neighbor next door or in our town, or in our state, or in our country. Do whatever you can do to help those in need.
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND SAFE WEEKEND, EVERYONE
