June Update

The first of our zinnia blooms. Sweet in pink and orange, one of my favorite color combinations.

The completion of the pour. Needs a bit of cleaning up and shaping up, but the hardest part is done. No more rough or muddy track behind the deck, and we have a lovely surface to run the lawn mower to the back yard.

He Reads Me Like a Book

My little dog, Otis, knows me too well. This morning I put his food in the dish and sat down at my computer, but he continued to watch me with an expression I know. "Will there be anything else you desire from me, O light of my world?" he asks. Love before food is his motto. Me, I slip on the wrist protectors I wear when I write, and Otis turned to begin his breakfast.

June Rain

Squalls shake the Basho
tree -- all
night my basin echoes rain.

Well Said

Saw this signature on the forums I visit:

Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk, Martin Luther King walked so Barack Obama could run, Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly.
