Skipped the gym this morning in favor of coming home to walk both dogs.
How do I forget (every day) this never works out. I cannot walk two dogs. I can stop, start, lurch backward, skitter forward until my brain becomes a roiling kettle of pissed offness. That, I can do.
Sadie doesn't even go on a leash anymore because she
Sparrow takes a different approach to walking. She attempts to thunder off into the great unknown by way of ripping my shoulder blade out of its socket. Sister is strong too so has almost gotten her wish a few times over.
So, there I this morning with my Nikon lens strapped in my front like a third boob, three poop bags shoved into my pocket, and naive optimism in my step.
A few houses into our walk, I see this:
An Autumn Ombre Tree!
(Can you see something else? Don't worry, I had plenty of bags.)
Now, the time is now. Pull it out, pull the stuck thing until I am free. Keeeep pulllingggg....keeep pulllinnggg...
"Sparrow! Stop! Sparrow, Ow! Sparrow, NO!"
Great, now I have to start all over. Food Lady all upset about her imaginary bird again. She is such a weirdo.
And so on.
The few pics captured I thought would probably reflect my mood: ugly, out of focus, and rotten.
Today, I celebrate beauty found in the weeds. Even if there are lots and lots of weeds. Grrrr....
