Humin moments

So I'm human.  You can’t fault a cat for sleeping 18 hours a day, or a snail for taking 2 hours to cross the street. I’m human, therefore I live my life having human moments.  I drop things.

X-ray vision

My dog has a superpower.  She can see through trees and over hills and into dense bushes as if they weren’t even there! She can hear noises on another level, aware of movement way before I even know something is coming. And the more time I spend walking with her in the woods, the more … Continue reading X-ray vision

Fighting through the fog

I was ambushed.  Out of nowhere in particular,  the cloud descended and enveloped me today.  Suddenly the sunshine, usually so bright, was nowhere to be found.   Have you ever had a day like that?  Everything is blanketed in gray, heavy mist. And I know in my head that I am surrounded by good and beautiful … Continue reading Fighting through the fog
