He Always Knows

He Always Knows

There are days when I wake up and nothing seems to be right.
No matter how hard I try, nothing seems to work.
I stumble through the day on the verge of tears wondering why,
asking myself if there is some point to it all because if there is, I am really not seeing it.

Sometime throughout this type of day, I will see out of the corner of my eye
this little white ball of fluff trying so desperately to get my attention...
"just look at me Mom and I will make it all Better"

When I notice his antics he is usually doing this, as you see in the photograph, he is peeking around something, looking from under something or he is upside down. Whatever he thinks it will take to make me smile. And it works like a charm, every single time.

What amazes me is how he knows....
He always knows when I need him the most.

Honor Thy Father

I knew since the day I took this photograph at Discovery Kingdom two years ago that I would post it in honor of a very special human being.
His name is George Adamson, otherwise known as
Baba ya Simba
"The Father of Lions".

Some of you may know of him already from the book/movie "Born Free" Elsa's Legacy.
For those of you who do not know....
George Adamson began his journey of saving lions with Elsa, but it far from ended there. He spent his entire life not just fighting for these animals but living with them as well in Kenya where he made it his mission to reintroduce lions back into the wild that had been removed from the wild.

George spent most of his life living with Lions but in the end he would lose his life at the hands of humans.

I encourage you to visit
Father of Lions
to read more about this incredible man and his wife too. It will be a visit you will not soon forget.

George was also the man that reintroduced "Christian the Lion" back into the wild. If you don't know of Christian then you really, really need to see this video
I promise you it is absolutely worth seeing.
(You will need tissue for the happy cry though) It's very moving.

“A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as well as that of his fellowman, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.”

What is Still There

"We can spend time in forests. We can ask the trees - and forests - what they want. Walk among ancient ones, trees sometimes two thousand years old. Put your hands on their bark, on their skin. Taste the difference in the air. Smell it. Reflect on the beauty of what's still there, and on what has been lost -- on what's been taken from us." - Derrick Jensen

This is the road that leads to home...

There is two and a half miles of this road between our house and the pavement, which makes life very interesting in the snow might I add. The location is Colfax, California

Cats Don't Like Water

Not much anyway.

The other day I woke up to a very loud noise, when I sat up in my bed, I saw my Mikey trying with all his might to get out of the fish tank, yep, yep, yep.

It all started out with good intentions, Goldie, our wonderful fishy use to be downstairs but she didn't get much interaction down there in the play room so I decided to move her upstairs where she could see more faces and have a more exciting life since she is an ‘only fishy’.
I did however put her in a different tank, this one being much taller than the other one and apparently not so easy to get out of if you were a cat that happened to fall in by accident. The problem obviously with this new tank was that it didn't have a cover, so I ordered one online and was making the best of it with a makeshift cover until the new one arrived. Well...
Mikey I guess jumped from my computer table to the top of the tank because I remember waking up and seeing him sitting on my keyboard, I dozed back off and woke up to seeing his little back feet against the glass at the bottom of the tank and his front paws latched at the top and he was struggling to get out big time but he made it. I immediately thought that he had eaten my sweet gold fish but looking in the tank along with all the stuff that had fallen in, there she was all safe and sound. (sigh)

I guess I have succeeded in giving Goldie some excitement, not really how I planned but she is no worse for the wear and as you can see here, she is still flirting with Mikey.

Needless to say, Mikey has a new found respect for Goldie AND her environment; he seems content just watching her now. LOL
