We don’t spend enough time on our deck. So today, on this warm quiet Saturday afternoon, with our work done for the day, I suggested we go there to see what we might need to do there later, and to just hang out for a while.
This little Buddha was given to me by Jake for Christmas right after Trump was elected. He thought I might need it. The stones were gifts too, and together they send a message: have patience, truth matters, breath easily, just because. I rub Buddha's little head, and practice calmness. I'll need to make more frequent visits in the coming week.
Charlie found us, just because, but he's not a lap cat. He was soon sprawled out on the deck in the shade.
We switched positions because the light was better for photos. I had my phone in my pocket, just because.
The sky roof above was serene.
But Tom couldn't stay still. He found things to do. He got snippy with his bonsai.
I sat still and watched him work, having no problem just sitting and breathing easily, just because.
