Following the MUSIC!

Painter Robert Henri (1865–1929) admonished his students to “Paint the spirit of the bird in flight, not its feathers.” His words have echoed with me since I heard them, joining photographer David Alan Harvey’s plea: “Don’t shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like.”

 

Thoughts of nature and memories

August 19, 2008 at 9:43pm

When I look at tall trees I feel as if they are like poetry reaching towards the sky writing words from earth to heaven. Going back at times to drive by the country place I see how tall the spruce, birch and other trees are we planted years ago. The dream was to have the house hidden by trees. There was always the woods and trails I loved to work on behind the house....now the trees are becoming the woods in front of the house. The new owners have kept feeding the deer in winter and have made the place so beautiful and cared for. It's good to see the place thriving , well kept, and loved.

  

Grew up with horses, dogs, ducks, homing pigeons and was a nature and animal lover all my life besides a love for sports , art, music, poetry, photography , and so much more. Humor is so very important :) My parents were Scotch, English with some Irish. Preserving all living things and our habitat in a time when gorgeous forests are torn down for big apartments or to use the land in a way it would not benefit our life on earth along with all of nature and its inhabitants . One of the best movies historically was Kevin Costner's Dances With Wolves.

Squiggy bulldog passed over the Rainbow bridge 2/10/08 just hours before he turned 12 years old.

Kit Kat...orange tabby cat crossed the Rainbow bridge 10/16/08

Squiggy and Kit were best friends...Squiggy almost 12 and Kit was 11. Squiggy and Kit were always close companions.

Sofie Snowfeet, golden retriever, passed over the Rainbow Bridge 7/27/2011. She was 12 years, nine months and six days old.

We still have Heffala , City and Bessie bulldog at this time.

There never seems to be enough time with those we love in our lives.

Heffala Humphrey bulldog crossed the rainbow bridge the morning of 12/12/2013. She was 12 years , one month and 13 days on this earth. She came into my life when I lost a dear bulldog in Dec of 2001 and was also know as QOE ( Queen of Everything) and many other nicknames. Her sidekick was Pluto. Grief, loss is a long journey. She's with all our past pets and with flickr friend's pets who have crossed over before her. I imagine them running and being restored to full health .

Mike passed away on Jan. 13 , 2014 known on flickr as Roofer 1. It's been a very difficult and sad year and know the journey of loss needs to take it's own time. For awhile City and Bessie bulldog and myself have managed together in the journey of grief and never thought the healthy rambunctious, adventurous City bulldog would be gone a few months later.

City bulldog....CSS Humphrey and son of Heffala bulldog crossed over the Rainbow Bridge early afternoon of August 2, 2014, He was the healthy boy and suddenly had a fast moving heart condition . He passed with his head over my lap and my arms hugging him and loving him as he crossed over. Bessie was his true love and she wonders where has everyone gone. The house is so quiet without him....he always had something to say or do and those evening parades holding one of his toys going around and around and hoping for clapping and praise and laughter. He was my adventure boy and we had many amazing adventures.

Dear sweet Bessie bulldog crossed over the Rainbow Bridge the afternoon of March 2, 2017. She is so missed and my heart is breaking but now she's with the others and bless her heart she stayed with me as long as she could .

On April 18, 2017 Sammy bulldog entered my life needing a second chance home . His birthday is in the first week of December and he's never had a birthday celebration so if I am still lucky to have Sammy D. Higgins with me.....he will have his very first birthday when he turns four years old. Sammy has much to learn and experience since so many things will be new to him.

 

December 2018.....Sammy D. Higgins just celebrated his second birthday with me (12/7/18) and turned five years old ! He will celebrate his second Christmas and bring in the New Year 2019 and has settled in so much he is now the boss of the house ( we debate this often). He's learned so much and had many fun adventures but his favorite are walks , trying to chase and catch squirrels or rabbits , climbing up hills or on the big rocks on a creek to snuggling and having a loving home. We are buddies and he appreciates those who love him on flickr !!

As a newcomer to photography and Flickr, I was lucky enough to hook up with Suzy fairly quickly. She immediately made me feel welcomed and has been a dear Flickr friend ever since. She has a heart of gold and goes above and beyond the call of duty with her generous spirit and overall kindness. She is an incredible inspiration to the Fickr community with her volunteer work, good nature, and wonderful sense of humor. Her photographs always make us smile along with her precious animal stories. I always look forward to each of Suzy's latest pictures and tales with anticipation. What an amazing person she has been to the Flickr community and especially to me with her unique talent and giving personality.

Suzy's photos and the stories that go with them are a treasure. Bulldogs are a favorite with me and anyone who views her cuties will end up agreeing. She brings such life into her photos that you will always end up with a huge smile on your face. Suzy is a fun and wonderful friend!

I was attracted to her Bulldogs faces instantly ! How cute and fun they seem. But I got a bonus...their owner Suzy is such a sweetheart. Suzy captures photos in a way none of us do. Her love of animals and the beauty in life is so evident. How much I have come to love seeing the City Gang almost daily. Her pictures have warmed my heart on days I felt bad, her pictures have given me smiles when I thought I was sad, I share her love of music, the words she adds have compassion and clarity of our need to bond and share. I feel so honored to call her friend here at FlickR and hope to be able to enjoy her creativity and sweetness for much much longer.

If we ever meet someday, it won't be difficult at all to look at her and give her a big hug! Her photos are wonderful and so are her darling dogs, Heffala, Squiggy, City, Bessie and Sophie! (Hope I didn't forget any...) Heffala is the QOE, what a temper, what a character!!! Squiggy, the senior dog, a Champion! City likes to bake Angel Food Cakes for any special occasions! Bessie is still a young lady and lots to learn from her teachers! Sophie, the Golden Retriever is as sweet as she can be! They always make me smile wanting for the next photo! Susy has a brilliant mind to tell stories, and they match so well to the photos she uploads! It's an honour to be her friend! Marina
