Is it silly or insignificant?

The loss of a loved one…a human is profound. What is it about the loss of a pet that we take into our lives, or is it the other way around? Profound loss, I say. Months later it brings tears. So powerful was the influence of Emma Louise in our lives that even today the mere mention of her name or her image causes a pause for reflection and an audible or silent homage.

Less evident are the pet’s feelings left behind. I am convinced they suffer affliction to their routines, patterns and yes hearts! Harley, was very close to Emma.



Harley has seemed at a loss for the last six months since Emma passed. Time has passed but the routines are different now. Harley seems to be much more dependent now even with lots of loves. The nuisance and teasing of two cats has not lifted Harley’s spirits.

When I come across the postings of folks that lose a pet, my eyes well up for their loss and for my unresolved loss. So it is.


Holding Back…..

“You will never find the real truth among people that are insecure or have egos to protect. Truth over time becomes either guarded or twisted as their perspective changes; it changes with the seasons of their shame, love, hope or pride.” Shannon Adler

Anthropomorphism: The shivering rose

I do this often. I attach some human response to plants, animals, rocks, trees. I am sure there is some psychobabble ID for such as me. For example: the rose is cold and shivering from the cold Fall rain, when in fact the rain is no doubt energizing and warming the rose…did I just do it twice more? Oh well. It is some quirk of mine that transfers my emotions outward, in the moment. Usually it allows me to be somewhat more in tune with the natural world around me. If I removed this tendency, I am sure I would be more precise, cold and clinical. But what fun is that? As long as I stay in the garden, woods, wilderness I am harmless.  Could it be those new meds? Do plants feel?
