There I was with the old man Stranded again so off I'd ran A young world crashing around me No possibilities of getting what I need He looked at me and smiled Said no, no, no, no, no child See the dog and butterfly Up in the air he likes to fly Dog and butterfly Below she had to try She roll back down to the warm soft ground, laughing She don't know why, she don't know why Dog and butterfly Well I stumbled upon your secret place Safe in the trees you had tears on your face Wrestling with your desires frozen strangers Stealing your fires, the message hit my mind Only words that I could find See the dog and butterfly Up in the air he like to fly Dog and butterfly below she had to try She roll back down to the warm soft ground Laughing to the sky, up to the sky Dog and butterfly We're getting older the world's getting colder For the life of me I don't know the reason why Maybe it's livin' making us give in Hearts rolling in taken back on the tide We're balanced together ocean upon the sky Another night in this strange town Moonlight holding me light as down Voice of confusion inside of me Just begging to go back where I'm free Feels like I'm through Then the old man's words are true See the dog and butterfly Up in the air he like to fly Dog and butterfly, below she had to try She roll back down to the warm soft ground With a little tear in her eye She had to try, she had to try Dog and butterfly, yeah Up in the air he like to fly The dog and butterfly, below she had to try She roll back down to the warm soft ground, laughing She don't know why But she had to try, she had to try Dog and butterfly Songwriters: Ann Wilson / Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson / Susan Ennis 🐶🦋
REPOST! What an incredibly gorgeous creature! I swear I’ve lived my life all wrong! ☺️ ***There’s no better job on the planet than volunteering for Ronnie, the baby Cape Vulture, and the Condor Team @lazoo If you take a moment, you’ll notice there’s a human apprentice in the chair who Ronnie is generously advising (me ). It’s hard to describe the awe of being enveloped by the divine wings of an endangered vulture. Two-thirds of the world’s vulture species are going extinct so every day with Ronnie and the Condor Team matters. Their efforts to protect and help this species propagate could be the last stand between these cleansers of our earth and extinction. In this moment, Ronnie is about to head outside and learn to use those “baby” wings. Stay tuned for more... —LouAnne, honored to be a Vulture Volunteer @lazoo 📸 credit: @chandralad #wildlifeconservation #endangeredspecies #lazoo #myheroes #vulturesofinstagram #capevulture #wingsfordays #vulture #wingsfordays #babybird***
Amen sister... “I think sometimes being busy can be a bit of a competition - especially among women 🤷🏻♀️ Maybe I’m wrong but I’m not sure men do this too?? I’ve noticed at events I go to that the host is always saying that people have cancelled at the last minute usually via text or online which makes it so easy to not feel the disappointment of the event organizer. Life is busy but if someone close to you is hosting a party or an event the least you can do is show up! Put your dancing shoes on, kick up your heels, just turn up even if it’s only for an hour. That small effort you make will be so appreciated and returned in due course. It’s all about your community folks and connecting in real life not just on the interwebs (although I love that too obvs 😁 ). Peace babes ✌🏽 #connect #effort #community #inreallife #facetoface #friends #family #showup #thegoddesschronicles #middleagedgoddess” @themiddleagedgoddess
Here’s a smile for ya. 🐶♥️
@jaijagdeesh posted the content below but I’m unable to share her post so I copied and pasted her words. After reading @elizabeth_gilbert_writer post about the Mississippi ICE raids I am once again brought to my knees with heartbreak and sadness for loss of each innocent life affected by the cruelty of actions brought on by apathetic madness. I am not coping well. So in the only way I can help I will donate in Elizabeth’s link and then I will sign off to regroup. I wish you all well and hope you are finding your way with solace and hope you have a better support system. Take care. 🙏🏼💔🙏🏼 #theworldistoomuchtohandle
Too soon but closer 🍁
Eleanor hits a milestone.
He took me on a good walk today but he’s getting checked out. Bloodwork to rule anything else out besides arthritic pain which has in his low back and elbows. We’ll focus on pain management. Also found that the tooth that was worrisome has probably been broken and has been infected all this time but since his blood sugar was all over the place the vet didn’t want to risk putting him under for the dental work. He’s stable so it is possible he may have to have it removed.
Wide awake and anxious. 6 am is just under 6 hours away. Just in time for a screaming cat who will let me know all about it’s starving belleh. Fun fun. #nightsounds #quartermoon
Music makes my world go round...🎶🌀🎶 I’m in John Denver state of mind today: All of her days have gone soft and cloudy All of her dreams have gone dry All of her nights have gone sad and shady She's getting ready to fly Fly away fly away fly away Life in the city can make you crazy For sounds of the sand and the sea Life in a high-rise can make you hungry For things that you can't even see Fly away, fly away, fly away In this whole world there's nobody as lonely as she There's nowhere to go and there's nowhere That she'd rather be. She's looking for lovers and children playing She's looking for signs of the spring She listens for laughter and sounds of dancing She listens for any old things Fly away, fly away, fly away 🕊 #musicmakesmyworldgoround
Just saved this little fella after watching my kid launch himself off the back deck to chase a squirrel as if he were a spring chicken. It was impressive and scary as he ate dirt as he landed but recovered quickly in steadfast determination to get that damn squirrel. I’ll have to see how the effects of that has on him in a bit. We go in tomorrow for a 6 month check up and see how to handle pain management. 🙏🏼😬🐶 #savedadrowningbee
Is it Fall yet? Here’s a beautiful ornamental pear leaf that has that has me wishing. #ornamentalpearleaf #dreamingoffall
Faced the blood sugar test. His numbers increased a few points which is good news! But I’m still worried about him and if his body is hurting. He’s having a harder time with steps and walks are much shorter. I’ve ordered a new product that got great reviews for better mobility. I’ve got a ramp for getting in and out of the car. I just have to come up with a way to get him up and down the stairs when we are at home. I don’t want to move until I’m ready to leave. I just hope the new stuff works and he maintains. He’s happy and eating and even gets playful with Bernie. Momma just needs to chill on the worry I guess. #kodibear #myheart #loveofmylife
Forever grateful for the beauty in the world and the way my eyes are automatically drawn to it. We need the beauty to counter the ugly that our collective humanity needs to bear down on us with. I shall never understand hatred, violence, greed & oppression but at least there is the beauty of nature to turn to for solace. And naps, music, art and animals. And Kodi kisses. Thank goodness. #hibiscus #beautyintheworld #thesearedarktimes

Another shooting, this time in Ohio. 28 dead in less than 24 hours. I just can’t even. 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔 #massshootingsmuststop
Just watched the Great Hack documentary on Netflix. It’s incredibly disturbing how we are being manipulated. More so than we can imagine. If an ounce of this is true we really should take stock and consideration about social media. I’ve quit FB. Not I haven’t deleted my account as of yet. But now I want to. But now I’m sad that the one outlet I do use might too play a part in the madness of it all. I enjoy sharing my pictures and seeing others. Conundrum. Even scarier is our politicians are using it to manipulate voters. That is down right frightening to even think about! I mean look who the sitting president is. We are sheeple people!!! Anyhoo...insight and food for thought. Watch it and educate yourself I say! #thegreathacknetflix #scarytimes

My friend Bernie. He’s a sweetheart. #petsitter #petsitterlife #petsittersofinstagram
Squeak amusement by Bernie. I personally love it. #squeakytoy #petsitter #petsitterlife
Right now I’m kicking myself in me arse for not getting out there and helping. I wish they would’ve stepped on that bag and then tried to capture it to get it off its leg. I hope someone is able to help it. Humans, please be better and recycle your bags or throw them in the trash. Nature and animals shouldn’t have to pay for our laziness. In the words of wise Maya Angelou, “ if you know better, do better.” #recycle #nomoreplasticbags #throwyourtrashaway #bebetterhumans #stopbeinglazyhumans #ifyouknowbetterdobetter

Ryan, my high school friend from Oklahoma City got to meet Kodi today! Grateful when far away friends get to meet my kid! ♥️ #kodibear #myheart #highschoolclassmatereunion
Super exciting to find a mantis friend on our porch this summer! There were 3 eggs in our redbud tree. I was hoping to see bunches of babies around but I haven’t been home too much. So happy to have this one hanging around for a bit. 💚 #prayingmantis #mantisfriend
He’s the only thing better than being out in nature. ♥️🐶♥️ #kodibear #myheart
