Living in the moment when there are better moments.

I know its ideal to live in the very moment you are experiencing….BUT….. I’d love to be sitting in the warm grass experiencing this thirty minute summer meeting again, in exchange of a few minutes of my current reality. I saw this fawn late summer after getting home from a funeral.

      Thanks Bob. I felt horrible zipping past a beautiful red-breasted woodpecker on an old tree and other critters without taking pictures in the holiday RUSH. Hate not slowly poking around. (:

      • Yes if I can survive hospital duty (slow so far tonight, thank you Lord!) got my 3 day weekend coming in which I take communion (of sorts) at the (Holy) Trinity Pub, Dallas’s finest. Cheers, chickadee.
