i jump out of bed.

under my foot is a dead lizard….

it was not my foot fall that took this life, though had he been alive it surely would have.

he was the gift of an unhappy cat – lets leave it at that…

Barking shakes the house as road workers and telephone personnel

find themselves at cross purposes –

communication is down all around.

pim contemplates a sweet gum ball

as i try to sit,

and contemplate

i see the small one beside me gazing at the sweet gum tree.

The leaves all gone,

nothing on

the branch but the spiny ball of future hope.


the seeds of love are here.

Look for this on ebay!  we are sharing the pictures daily to help support out work in the world.
