Basic Essentials

imageSometimes I have to reduce my philosophic wandering

to what I basically know to be true.

It’s very simple.

Take, for example, this short poetic bit:

“Cat curled asleep
On my lap —
Beloved
As love-sponge.

Dog gazing up
From the floor—
All calm
And liquid eyes —
All fountain.”

…………GREGORY ORR, from his book,
River Inside the River.

So, for my Christmas doll house, I will find a cat
to sit on the windowsill on the porch, and
I will find a dog to sit at the open door of that
porch.

always with love,
Mom/Mimi/Toni/Antoinette
