wider than the sky

my pack - Jake, Winnie & Em

My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine
Softer than a sigh.
My love is deeper than the deepest ocean
Wider than the sky.
My love is brighter than the brightest star
That shines every night above
And there is nothing in this world
That can ever change my love

Petula Clark

A perfect morning adventure with my pack of three captured forever on film. This is a repeat image on this blog and my most absolute favourite photograph. One that I tucked away in my journal while on design trips to far away lands - Hong Kong, Paris and Los Angeles while the sweeties waited together in our local boarding kennel for me to return home. I loved them and I missed them so much it felt as if I wouldn't live, without them. Every night, after days filled with the thrills of big city exhilaration and adventure, tucked in my heavenly hotel bed somewhere, I would count the number of sleeps until I would see them again. This photo was taken with an old fashioned film camera, the summer of 2003. I remember that day vividly, our early morning trip to the beach. With perfect golden warm sunshine. I think I took at least 36 exposures to get this one ... most perfect picture.

Hard steady rain and rumbling thunder, kittens on windowsills, bubbles and scent, a second mug of coffee and my pack of one, Winnie Dixon snoring softly in her bed under my desk - it's another early morning here at 29 Black Street.


  1. "Another early morning at 29 Black Street"...*sigh*. A wonderful place to be.

  2. Good morning friend...I have and award for you over at my place...feel free to come and pick it up any time. :)

  3. Susan, If you get this comment twice it is because I got an error message the first time I attempted it. I almost made it to Nova Scotia once, but the weather closed in and I had to stay in Maine. I was directed to your site by Willow. Very nice. If you want to come south, and I do mean south, visit me at Pappy's Balderdash. Have a great weekend. Pappy

  4. That is a great picture. You can tell that they loved their Mama.

  5. I didn't realize that you were still doing the long distance traveling after you got Miss Winnie.....

    great pic of the gang..

    I'm sending my sister your comment...she believes in the "fat" gene too... seeing as how she is so careful not to leave food around and Mr. T is still maintaining....

  6. I am here via generous and lovely Willow, and I am having a wonderful time! You have a most enjoyable blog to visit, and we both will be back.
