Welcome to this week's "I Like"Thursday!
*I Liked the flowering trees we saw on last weekend's walk around Annapolis.
The town is so pretty anyway but with colorful trees it's magical.
I sent a photo to my writing partner Eliza, as a writing prompt and we both wrote a story to go with it.
There is no limit to creative inspiration, right?
Let's get started...
*I Liked also this little shop dog in one of my fave stores in Annapolis.
*I Like reading these books right now.
Reincarnation is for porch reading and
beading with brick stitch is to inspire! And teach me something!
* I Like this post a lot. She shows a photo, split into colors and the quilt it inspired. Pretty exciting stuff!
*I Liked this dress made of tea bag papers recently seen at the Celestial Seasonings Tea Co.
* I Like these little travel containers from AAA.
*I Like the Creative Drive that takes over
*I Like this Peep Quilt picture my friend Bonnie sent to me
*I Liked these barrel of monkeys seen on a recent trip to Frederick
We chatted about the challenges of old dogs and older people. I was struck by the love emanating from this couple... it was so large around them, I could almost see it, most definitely I felt the aura.
Also with them, was the woman's mother (who has Alzheimer's)
They related a story of the older pom on the bench, who recently had a major health scare. The gentleman said he was sobbing at the emergency vet's and luckily the doggie pulled out of it.
We discussed the challenges and exhaustion and constancy of caring for the infirm, whether human or dog.
How it causes loving people to snap at each other.
How you love so greatly that your heart breaks some each day and how we must take care of ourselves as well as our loved one.
Do you ever wish it was socially acceptable to ask people you feel an affinity for, if they would like to be friends??? When we were children and met someone we liked, we just asked, "wanna be friends?" and then played together. Adults are not as easy to collect but I would love to be friends with these two very interesting kind people. We laughed at the same things, and got each other.
That's the human condition right? We can all relate.
You feel their pain don't you?
They are American, but were also immigrants
Remember we are all so alike.
Thanks for coming by!
