Night Natterings

They say the whole

is greater than the sum

of the parts, but they’re 

misquoting Aristotle who

said the whole is something

besides the parts. 

It seems that’s part of the problem

with words: they can lead us

down some rabbit holes.




Following the disappearing sun,

darkness slowly crept

across the horizon

and was soon joined

by a scattering of stars

and a pale crescent moon

softly wishing us a good night.


Dog Days

Mitch Teemley


Thought for the Week

Lily, a six-year-old Great Dane, had lost both of her eyes due to a rare medical condition. She’d also lost the will to live. Until one day another Great Dane named Maddison came into her life. Maddison began “walking” Lily every day, guiding her with gentle but firm nudges, insisting she keep going. Lily’s depression was soon displaced by an unbreakable bond of friendship with Maddison. Now neither will go anywhere without the other.

You know that thingabout dogs being loyal best friends and all that? Well, it’s true. Maybe they should set up “human obedience schools” to teach us how to givelike Maddison and gratefully receivelikeLily.PawPrint6Happy Dog Days!
