24 Jan 2017 Morning Drawing and Buster (loving your neighbors and their pets)

Hello to you family. It’s 11:48 am as I start to write to you today. I hope this finds you well as you find me here whether on purpose or by coincidence.

I am doing fairly well today except that no one is sleeping well in our house for going on weeks…months (?) now and I am concerned about my neighbors little Yorkshire terrier named Buster. I call him Buster Bear. I think he has been left alone by his owner and I’m not sure if he is being cared for. As those of you that are dog lover’s know, Yorkies are companion dogs and prefer to be close to their owners. I’m fairly certain he has food and water but he must be so lonely being left in a big house all by himself for going on over a day now. I’m hoping he’ll come outside and peek at me like he typically does through the slats in our adjoining fences. We plan to do the food over or through the fence test if he does. If he eats what we provide ravenously then we know we have a problem. I hope that’s not the case! I don’t just love my neighbor people, I love their dogs and cats too!  All the different forms life takes on this planet are neighbors to me!

This isn't Buster but what he looks like.  Adorable!

We know his owner but don’t know them if that makes sense. We’ve talked to each other but haven’t exchanged phone numbers in case of emergencies etc. Yesterday a cop came by the house because someone wants to donate a new Texas State Flag and United States Flag to replace the tattered rags he’s got billowing on the flag pole in his front yard right now. No one came to the door but Buster was barking….sigh. I’m trying not to be a nosey neighbor but it’s hard. If you ever saw Buster you’d understand.

Anyhew. The drawing I did today is me thinking about the clouds passing overhead again. I was thinking about all the particles of “life” the clouds that pass overhead carry from place to place…..sky ships again.

24 Jan 2017 - Clouds of Life Passing Overhead drawing I did today.   The sky ships looking down on me as I look up at them as they pass me by.

If you haven’t been told your loved today, I will!  I love you and even though we may not know each other in person, in my heart I feel we are all family.

Let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds held and nurtured over generations. Let the rain wash away the memory of the hurt, the neglect. Then let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows. Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken. Let it burn away the fog so that we can see each other clearly. So that we can see beyond labels, beyond accents, gender or skin color. Let the warmth and brightness of the sun melt our selfishness. So that we can share the joys and feel the sorrows of our neighbors. And let the light of the sun be so strong that we will see all people as our neighbors. Let the earth, nourished by rain, bring forth flowers to surround us with beauty. And let the mountains teach our hearts to reach upward to heaven. Amen.

    • Thank you Cindy! We saw the neighbor out and about today so Buster is ok after all. You just never know about these things and the mother hen in me comes out really strong especially when it comes to the four legged ones!
