Tonight when I got home I was greeted by my dog and toddler with lots of licks and drool. From both of them. Toddler licked me to greet me. I think he needs more time around humans....

Here's a drawing of a Toucan from today I'm proud of.

Also started working on a model build today. Pretty excited to try building one!

Sunday fun day

The small brown bunnys heart pattered against the palm of my hand as I clutched to to my chest. So small and so quick the fluttering- reminded me of when I held my pet bird as it lay dying. That same connection of a beat, the softness of its fur, and delicate paws wriggling to try to find freedom. Or maybe when I'd pet the shrew burrowing through the grass in my yard-- tho that had been much faster. Shhhh and a small peck on its head between the ears, as if it were my own child. As if it could feel my compassion through its fur and sinew. 

Please calm down. I'll put you somewhere safe. Just wait. It wriggled as if in half-hearted agreement- just a moment more to wait while our dog snuffles its tiny perfect ears. And wispy layers of soft rabbit fur - a perfect miniature of possibility. I found our brush pile and tucked in the baby bunny, blending into grass and leaves, protected.

Letting go a seemingly fragile wild animal is hard. My mind goes to all the scenarios with gloomy end, but hope winnows them down. He's gotten along this far, maybe this bunny is ment to be. I walk away and hope he lives to run another day.

The red album

So this is the first record I remember loving, and the one that introduced me to The Beatles. When I was little I got a record player from my moms friend and then borrowed this record from my local library. I played the shit out of that record, and even copied a recording on a cassette so I could listen to it on my Walkman. 

It would be years later when taking a Beatles guitar course that I would learn that the red album had more songs in it - So unbeknownst to me, a whole vinyl was missing from the set at the library. 

Now, years later, I got a record player for Christmas. What's the 1st album I buy? A new copy of The Red Album- which the record store happened to just get in the day before.

So in the last day of 2015 I'll be listening to a fresh pressed copy of an old album, in complete order, for the first time.

PiBoIdMo is done!

I can't believe I kept up for the entire month!! It's been a while since I wrote regularly and I kinda miss it. I have a different voice when I write than my social/active self is on a day to day basis. Pretty proud that I managed to participate in PiBoIdMo 2015!
