Isn’t this glass beautiful? I forgot the name of the hotel/casino it was in, but I just thought it interesting. Again, hard to take photos because of position and perspective, but I did want to capture these glass flowers on the ceiling.
No stories today – I will be back later this week maybe with a Vegas story and photos.
I may as well say it: I’m having a sad day. On top of something I feel sad about, is another layer — I’m just missing my old girl Kayla. Tomorrow she’ll have been gone a year. Okay, so, she’s “just a dog” but she was a good and faithful friend and I sure do miss her. Tomorrow I must release her ashes in her favorite places around the cove on my mountain. I thought sure I’d have done that by now, but I didn’t. Tomorrow is when I will do it. I never was one of those dog-lovers who takes their dog everywhere they go, who dresses them in clothing, who lets them sleep in her bed (too big and too hairy *smiling*), who made them into miniature humans: I always wanted to respect that she was a canine, an animal, who she was and who I am were not the same in so many ways even though we understood each other in our ways, and by respecting that, I respected her. She was a dog. I am a human. However, our bond, the bonds with our animal friends and with the critters of the earth, is a strong one….very strong. She was special and beautiful and my friend. A good old girl; a good good friend….
I am just sadder than sad today.
