Immolation Central - Part 2

this post is covered with tears

This blog is inspired by the dogs with whom I share my life, my home, and my heart. I endeavor to capture and communicate in words and pictures some of what I learn from living with them. Shiva and Guile have captivated me and they have been my earthly muses on this journey, and this blog has been a tribute to their hearts and souls, and to all the humans who love and live with dogs and treat them with respect and dignity. Dogs are dogs, humans are humans, and we are all animals. When we reach hand and paw across that divide, we know that it is not so great a gap that hearts cannot be touched and lives changed despite a difference of species.

Some of you already know the story I am about to tell. Some of you, with your hearts aching and tears on your faces, reached for your own nonhuman companions and held onto them tightly when you heard. I love you for that. I love you for treating all animals with respect, and for sharing your homes with the lost and the refugees. I love you for caring, and for living your lives as if you give a damn. I am honored to count you among my friends, and I am touched by your love and kindness. (more...)

Planning for Forever

If you have to go away sometime
I will wait for you
I will wait until hell freezes over if I have to

hell freeze 1

Then we'll really have some fun.

hell freeze 2

Fly Away

you and me
we could be
you know
up there
free and fast
like dreams or clouds
or brilliant ideas

go don't go

I don't always want to talk.


But I always want you to be there when I do.


Sometimes running feels so good

I don't even care where I'm going

And witty, and gay.

You be smart today.

I feel pretty.

I'm Fine

Sometimes I don't want any help.

my stick

I just want to carry my own stick, all by myself.

One Step Forward

The Sufis say that while your heart grieves for what it has lost, your spirit celebrates what remains.

shiva guile dance now

Everybody dance now.

This post is officially and rationally dedicated to the eminently compassionate Dandelion, admirer of avocados, modest overlord, and voice of reason at Vegan Represent.

It's buried in the garden.

Sometimes when you are out helping people and stuff
I get kinda lonely.

I wonder if you know that.

Anyway, that's why I hid your cape.
