Snake taken in the TN mountains with a quotation from Mary Oliver’s Have You Seen Blacksnake Swimming? from the book “Why I Wake Early”.
". . . he made a lacy wake and there was a rippling sound,
a sort of soft music, just enough to amuse that narrow mouth,
whose corners, in that coolness, were lifted in even more than
his usual gentleman's smile.
"Why I Wake Early"

The Roo Dog
April 1998 ~ August 2008
"There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains."
Our precious Roo passed on Saturday. He had been with us for almost 10 years. He had a beautiful soul and was the favorite dog for all the grandchildren. We will miss him everyday as he was the BEST dog in the world. We have two other dogs, but Roo had a gentleness beyond belief.
right & wrong
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there."
