~ True happiness lies in the simplest moments ~
—
Tough week, tough month, tough summer. In the midst of war and missiles thrown our way - with all the bad mood and anxiety that it brings, i discovered that Riddick, besides his fobias and panic attacks, is now developing canine bronchitis (which is the equal to humane asthma) - and chances are he will be hooked on meds for life.
And still, i’ve opened my Etsy shop, i’ve opened a Facebook page (i might regret this one), i started printing my photographs, i even started having sales and orders….and all along i busted my ass off, since August is the month in which i work the hardest throughout the year, at my daily office work. Parents go away on vacation to look after their kids and happy childless people like myself find themselves swamped and overwhelmed with office work (and thank goodness i had a break from teaching!).
All this to say that…i know i have been pretty absent and though i really am dead tired…we are fine.
How did your summer go, you beautiful people?

“Dream Song:
As my eyes Search the prairie, I feel the summer in the spring. Whenever I pause The noise Of the village. ” 
― Frances Densmore, American Indians and Their Music

Ouch!
I have lost myself again - lost myself and i am nowhere to be found-  Yeah, i think that i might *break* - lost myself again and i feel unsafe -
Be my Friend
Hold Me
Wrap Me Up
Unfold Me 
I am small
and needy
Warm Me Up
and 
Breathe Me

Ouch!

“You may not remember the time you let me go first. Or the time you dropped back to tell me it wasn’t that far to go. Or the time you waited at the crossroads for me to catch up. You may not remember any of those, but I do and this is what I have to say to you: Today, no matter what it takes, we ride home together.”
 ― Brian Andreas, Traveling Light: Stories & Drawings for a Quiet Mind

“So that’s how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing that’s stolen from us—that’s snatched right out of our hands—even if we are left completely changed, with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence. We draw ever nearer to the end of our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails off behind. Repeating, often adroitly, the endless deeds of the everyday. Leaving behind a feeling of immeasurable emptiness.” ― Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart
