Sound the Shofar

“Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim,” 
(“May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year.”)
 Celebrate and renew your relationship with the divine.

Choosing a Picturebook

  Which one to pick?
It's always so hard to judge a book by its cover.
And even harder to read titles that are vertical.
Wait. I think I can sense the location of Good Night Moon.
I love that one...bowl of mush...

Like R.E.M. Says To

(or lie down if you've just received shocking news.)
The band may have broken up (OH!NO!)
but their music will play on forever.
Thanks for creating a soundtrack to living.

How about a jaunt around the mountain?
Whadaya say? Up and at 'em sunshine!
There are smells to smell and scat to roll in.

Dog Psalm #56

Take one peaceful moment and stretch it around your whole day.
Take comfort from the comforter.

Good Listener

 I always want to hear your whole story, all the ins and outs of it 
and the meanings in your words and silences.
Is there anything else you'd like to share? 
I'll keep it in the strictest of confidence.

Vacuuming up crumbs is my favorite housework.

Dog Psalm #55

It is best to honor those lost with our joyous living.
That is the thing that can seem impossible, but must be done.
Healing may take your entire lifetime. 
Be gentle with yourself and in the world.

Waiting for Supper

It's nice to watch the humans scurry about preparing food,
making delicious smells and sounds.

Dog Psalm #54

By the heavenly light and affirmative energy
of my Himalayan salt lamp
I can see deep into the Goodness of being.
Go forth and shine your light.
May your ions be positive.

Perimeter Watch

I've found the secret trail of that little chipmunk
who taunts me with his chirps
and leaves his acorn trash on my front steps.
One morning soon I will surprise him.
