29 February Leap Day


This is the same photo
As 28 February
Except...
You can see the Sedona-ness
In the background
And you can really imagine
That I, Gracie Mae
Will BE your personal 
Tour Guide-ette
To the wonders
And the majesty
Of
My first place I called
Home
Happy Leap Day
Love,
Gracie

If I could
I would 
Stand upright
Walking BEside you
BEing the One True Friend
I really AM to you in your extraordinary Life

It does my heart good
Gracie girl
To remember you happy
Feeling better
More yourself
Which you seem to DO
So easily
Naturally
Even if
Or when
Things aren't quite going
Your way.

Seeing you this way
In your full-on "filet" position
Though it's from several years ago
Makes me smile wider
Relax a little bit more
Knowing
Your problems of the Now
Are on the mend
And YOU are, too.

I love your way of spreading out
"Filet of Grace" style
or, as Gary called it
"Splatterbutt" style
It looks so natural
Always has
And it always makes me
Laugh!!!

Oh Goodness Gracie!!
You DID indeed LOVE
When Dry Creek
Was Very Wet
And muddy
And I let you just BE
You swam
You rolled
You ran in circles
You dove in
You ran along the hard bank
And if you could have used your words
They'd have been
Sprinkles of delightedness
Wrapped inside giggles...

Oh yes
Special Mud Mask indeed!!
Look how happy you were
Those days
When Dry Creek
BEcame
Mud Creek
And I let you
Go BE a dog
Makes me smile
Just remembering...

This was your first time
In the water
In Lake Tahoe
And it was MY first time
Realising that
Tahoe water actually IS
Blue.

People are always asking
When they see my strangely 
Spotted Tongue
HOW ever did THAT happen?!
And all I can DO is shrug
Smile
And let them BE awed!!!

Never
NOT Once
Were you ever fooled
Or caught NOT paying attention
To
The Littlest
Details of Life
Going on round about you.

BEing able to enJOY
myself
by myself
Is truly one of Life's
greatest
lessons...

Seriously?!
DO you REALLY 
Like
How things taste?
Red rocks
Sticks
Pinecones
and Now
Frisbees?!

You WERE so funny
You are STILL so funny
How you insist
Persist
And simply DO NOT
Give Up
On any time schedule
BUT
Your Own...

I remember this day in my Life
The day I discovered
The Frisbee
and...
Though I still cannot catch one
I love watching
As other dogs DO...

I don't understand this!!!
Won't even pretend I DO
My eyes are
Big
&
Brown
But 
NO WAY
Are they
Or
Were they
EVER
BLUE

I've grown a LOT
Since this photo
But I still have
This LOOK
Whenever
I've been
Woke
Up

Life Is...
Fascinating
Curious
A little strange
Very funny
[the way human beans DO it]
And
Someplace
I'm
Glad 
To
BE...

Sleeping
Snoozing
Resting my eyes
Whatever you or I 
Call it
It's simply
Wondrous
Refreshing
And
Delicious

It's fun to play
To imagine this
Blue neon ME
Who I am 
Most certainly 
NOT

People ALWAYS comment on my face
And my smile
BUT...
There is another face
One that "people" don't see
Yet one I have
Far more frequently than you'd guess
And...
I have been making it for
A Very Long Time!!

We all start out smaller
Perhaps BEcause it is all we can manage
And we grow bigger
As we come to BE able to manage a bit more.
Bigger isn't necessarily better or more
Or even any sort of improvement on our original self
It's just the way Time does things
And our real selves don't disappear
BEcome dust that flies away
Those smaller BEfore selves
They just find a pocket inside to ride along in.

Simple
BE
Wherever
You
Imagine
Yourself
BEing

I know it's silly
But I also know you're like this, too
A certain number
A word
A phrase that means more to you
Than you can easily explain...
That is Twenty-Seven
27
ME

I know I am NOT 
Scary
Intimidating
Or EVEN
Dangerous
BUT...
I surround myself
And everyone else
With some powerful
LOVE
