frik and frak

they scurry about ~ ~ ~

running this way and that ~ ~ ~

up one limb ~ ~

down another ~ ~

jumping from one tree to the next...




they jostle,

they squib

and

suddenly pause for a wink,

then back at it again....   and again....   and again....


 

 

**We have a pair of these little guys (could be girls, or one of each)…..always together and always enjoying our trees and roof and deck….  I tried to get a photo of both but they are too, too quick.  We have named them Frik and Frak.  The one in the photo is Frak – I think… or could be Frik………

I have many ‘sources’ of inspiration.  There are my children, including my ‘daughter’ (the hairy one), the many forest preserves around where I live, lakes and ponds and anything which may catch my eye.

There is, however, one source ~ one pond ~ in particular – a few steps from my townhouse…

even

the most perfect sunshiny day ~

onward young man…

many miles ahead…

dreams waiting to be embraced…

grab the wheel and drive…

hanging with mom

the day before he hit the open road…

An update on my son who resembles a yeti:

The ‘guy’ and two gals have been hanging out in CO…hiking, site seeing, exploring the Rocky Mountains, Boulder, Denver, Four Corners, Flagstaff…tomorrow they will be driving to the City of Angels.

searching ~

.

i have been searching for a story

with a happy ending ~

something simple

not grand,

no complications or pain.

.

a production of sorts ~

words dancing on pages,

pages waltzing through chapters,

chapters leaping between covers…

all bound by a simple

beginning,

middle

&

end.

.

can it be such a story truly exists

or

am i fooling my heart ~ wasting

my days ~ searching

for

a

book

I can… will… never write?

.

listen….

with open arms

they stand ~ waiting

to embrace

your passion

and

your vision.

I can hear their voices

whispering… from afar…

can you hear them?

your dreams are speaking…..

Note: Jordan left for the West Coast yesterday… with a car full of stuff and two friends.  Their final destination is Los Angeles, however, they are stopping along the way to hike in Colorado – Rocky Mountain National Park.  Jordan will be living and working in LA.  He was accepted into the AFI’s (American Film Institute) Summer Internship Program, which will begin June 15th.  Until then, he has a job – working as an assistant on a film set. (The director is an alumnus of Jordan’s school.) & one more thing… since he will be an AFI intern, he will working on this year’s “AFI Lifetime Achievement Award” program which will be nationally televised in June.  Apparently some dude by the name of Steve Martin is the honoree!!  Geez the kid might as well be attending/working the Academy Awards!!  To quote my son ~ “Mom, they are renting me a tux!”
