one universe
dogs nurture friendship
with squirrels too

  1. Smell of FRiEnDSHiPS
    in Kind of Taste For Life
    Smiles Xenia Reminds me
    of Our Cats Introduced to a Huge
    Stuffed Tiger the Inside Cat Was not
    Afraid at all..
    but it’s True
    He never
    or Worked
    For His Food
    Content Yes but
    Missing the Beauty
    of the Calls and Answers
    of the Wild the Book the ‘Call
    of the Wild’ made me Cry when
    i was a little Boy i wasn’t sure why
    until i Answered and Became Free
    Reborn as Nature Loving Wild
    Dances Sings Really Lives
    Now Tasting
    Sun Shine
    Smelling Full Moon..:)

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Terri πŸ™‚πŸ’œ We’ve encountered many sculptures in forests before and this was a new reaction – they both approached the squirrel as if he was a living creature πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx

  2. Love the autumn leaves! There is an eddy in the winds in front of our house, and the leaves dance on end between our front yard and the neighbor’s to the south of us. When it snows and the wind is blowing, the leaves end up in piles on top.

    Best wishes for your week!
