bless herveryself
is much better.
maybe it was the touch of sea air, 
or the long car ride, 
or time itself
she is in retirement now.
 note the ears
 even in the lazy morning sunshine,
she's listening for me
 there is always 
a longing for coolness, so she moves 
from the sunshine to the shade.
this behavior, a rest in the outdoors
on her belly 
is totally new. 
always before she would be working (playing)
but NEVER still.
after the last long "episode"
she stumbles a bit, 
carries her head a little cocked
and eats well, for the time being.
some of my recent
has been very pleasing, indeed.
and it's labor day
which means i go back to work tomorrow.
