deer and dog



yesterday, i pushed my bed up to a window.  this morning the first thing i saw when i opened my eyes was a brilliant sunrise.  this is just a hint of it because it faded fast. 

in order to take a picture i took the bathroom screen out, climbed on top of a chair and then the sink and stuck my head out the window.  in the process, i discovered this multi-colored metal roof on a hidden spot on my house.   mimics the color of the sunrise, the birches and the snow.  more roofs should look like this, me thinks.

i also woke to a vivid dream.  i was running with a pack of deer.  the dogs were there romping as well; general merriment.  it seems we were all in a large field which brought to mind not the woods but the landscape at a boarding school i went to one year.  i went to a lot of (different) schools.  i'm a gemini.  we are a quicksilver sort.

my specific heaven will include running with my dog and a pack of deer.  what would yours be like?

what would my specific heaven be like? that is such a great question. I think the answer might change a lot, but I think mine would be a series of old libraries. Like the best parts of all of them in one. Certain views, particular wood chairs, specific radiator covers, and lovely librarians. Yes, I think that would be it. With a nice echo and streaks of sunlight through high windows. My specific hell would involve running. That I know for sure.

MY HEAVEN WOULD BE WOODS MOUNTAIN LOG CABIN AND A LAKE WITH A DOCK TO SIT ON . I'S JUST SIT THERE AND SUCK UP NATURE ALL AROUND ME, DEER AND ALL. PEACE AND QUIET WITH FEW PEOPLE AROUND. I LIKE TO HEAR THE SOUNDS OF NATURE. JUST LISTEN SOMETIME WHEN YOUR OUT WHERE IT'S QUIET FROM MAN MADE NOISE. IT'S REALLY WONDERFUL.
TYPING IN LARGE TYPE IS MY STYLE. I CAN SEE IT BETTER.

I love that roof. Right now my heaven would be to go home and stay. After all, West Virginia is almost heaven ;)
