set them free

if they don’t make you feel better

they must flee

only occupiers of space

that control your mind

 makes you think

that all is fine

let the light of truth come in

and that’s when true freedom will begin..

Last night, before I went to bed, I read about some concerns in our community, regarding those, that have been seen abusing their dog in public. It was disturbing! I hate to think that anyone is abused, man, woman, child, baby, animal. From what I read it seemed that very little can be done when seeing someone kick their dog. What can be done? I would like the truth to this, please…Thank you!

Through the eyes of a child

Meeting this little boy, was my most recent magical moment. I did not wave a wand and was not magically whisked away. It took planning and preparation,but my heart got filled up and it will carry me, for awhile.

I recently paid a visit to this visitor’s center on Veteran’s Day. It was my first time there and I was quickly greeted with Oregonian style hospitality. We were in town for the parade and I had about an hour before the parade started. I decided to explore. The street sidewalks were filling up with chairs and people, so I ambled on my way, destination unknown at the time. This window display caught my eye and there I stayed long enough to chat with the gracious ladies that offered me a hot beverage. I was too excited to eat or drink anything at the time, because I wanted to take a few pictures, to capture the gorgeous carousel horse. This horse named Lightning and the fish will eventually be housed in a building that is being constructed. I definitely will go back at another time, so that I can look at the many brochures at my leisure. I highly recommend visiting this Albany, Oregon, visitors center, if you need any kind of information on what to do or where to go while in the area.

I had hoped to capture some seasonal color while in California, but the truth is my focus was else where and on meeting up with baby-boys, not so much leaves… So while we were out and about yesterday in Albany, Oregon, I made a point of seeing what was available for this challenge.
