HAPPY HAPPENS

Always an interesting query for me at the beginning of a new year, "What do you REALLY want to do?"  I did my usual confusing routine.  Maybe I'll write another book, or look for more magazine work.  Do I want to write a newspaper column again?  Maybe retire, pack it all in.  None of these concepts appealed.  This year is different and the answer pretty easy. I REALLY want to go back to where I started, back to animal/nature photography and poetry. Not just in a blog, but out there.  I think it's an age thing.  You get to be where I am in life and basically say, "Time is flying by old girl, do what feels right."  For me that's recognizing my connection to all living things and honoring that unifying universal energy (the energy I call God) through my work. 

So, a select few of my framed (pet with poem) pieces are up and available in a local pet store and I've reopened my Etsy shop to display my work as veterinary office décor.  You can find me at CRITTERSONBOARD.  http://CrittersOnBoard.etsy.com

Or, you can enjoy HAPPY HAPPENS, my latest piece, below.


 

 
      
                                HAPPY HAPPENS
 
I WHIRL ROUND AND ROUND WHEN YOU GET
                              OUT OF BED
OUR DAY IS BEGINNING, GOOD THINGS AHEAD.
 
I LEAP WITH JOY WHEN YOU PICK UP MY POOP
CAUSE YOU TOSS MY BALL EVERY TIME YOU SCOOP.
 
RATTLE THOSE CAR KEYS AND I SKID TO THE DOOR                                                 
IT’S OUT TO THE JEEP, NOT THE VET’S BUT THE STORE.
 
THERE’S MY LEASH COMING DOWN FROM THE HOOK
OH BOY, I’M READY LET’S GO FOR OUR WALK.
 
I JUMP HIGH AS THE SKY WHEN YOU TAP MY TREAT BIN
TIME FOR COOKIES, SOME PATS AND THE HAPPY HAPPENS.
