Katelyn with Her Aunt Kate (July 2021)

When you look at me, you see the past.
When I look at you, I see the future and
Feel good about things to come.

Dog Eaten Purse Strap: A Follow-up   Leave a comment

Missing Dog Eaten Purse Strap — Image by kenne

Recently I reblogged a post from 2009 of granddaughter Katelyn and myself, who we visited on our road trip stop in Houston.
The reblog had the following preface:

“Yesterday, we visited David, Janie, and Katelyn in their new home before going out to dinner.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any new photos distracted by the running dialog of trying to share
everything that has happened over the past two years and the not-expected destroying of Joy’s
leather purse by one of their dogs
. So, I will add that she is a beautiful young woman about
to start her senior year in high school.”

Since daughter Katie follows my blog, she texted a recent image of her and Katelyn taken when she visited Kately, Janie, and David in July.

As for the purse, Janie has ordered Joy a new handbag.
Thank you, Janie!

Follow what you love! . . Don’t deign to
ask what “they” are looking for out there.
Ask what you have inside. Follow noy your
interests, which change, but what you are 
and what you love, which will and should
not change.

The Eyes Tell You

Little girls have a mysterious power,

But not all can feel it – when she does,

You can see it in her eyes.

As she matures, she’s driven

To climb the tower of perfection,

Always resisting her indifference.

Her enigmatic power is needed

To stir the artist inside,

To triumph over the unenlightened.

In her way, she will find something new,

Something never before encountered

Placing art in a world void of feeling.

Inventive, she will act,

Sometimes seeking out failure

To turn it into a triumph.

Once her power is transformed

By the magical virtue of art,

Loving and understanding become simpler.

Now that they return home, I ponder —

Children and grandchildren 

are the beautiful mysteries 

that drive our emotions 

stirring each moment we share, 

not knowing if the same emotions 

transcend each communication in the moment,

ending in emotional question marks.

The Eyes Tell You

Little girls have a mysterious power,
But not all can feel it – when she does,
You can see it in her eyes.

As she matures, she is driven
To climb the tower of perfection,
Always resisting her own indifference.

Her enigmatic power is needed
To stir the artist inside,
To triumph over the unenlightened.

In her own way, she will find something new,
Something never before encountered
Placing art in a world void of feeling.

Inventive, she will act,
Sometimes seeking out failure
In order to turn it into a triumph.

Once her power is transformed
By the magical virtue of art,
Loving and understanding becomes simpler.
