"poetry shatters our indifference to the everyday.... when we read a poem, a poem reads us .. leading us to a place of radical exultation"

It's Four O'Clock in the Morning, Damn it*

"The numbers suggest that governments need to make mental health care more of a priority, Fazel says: "So much emphasis has been placed on reducing smoking and smoking deaths. Mental illness doesn't receive the same attention in public health and public policy."

I sit here with the dog, and with the cat and I listen. I listen to the cardinal's coquettishly singing, to the woodpecker's percussion, and to the accompanying consort of chickadees, sparrows, and of one mourning dove. I sit...

Story
Tagline
quirky, in a mostly a good way, person who spends way too much time doodling, playing with a camera and writing
Introduction
A Canadian figuring out life in the US.  Mother of three teenagers who has been driven slightly mad, somewhat sarcastic, and LIVES for Art and well written words. Also, I doodle on everything.
Bragging rights
3 teenagers, 2 cats, and a rescued greyhound named Fezzik - life is never dull. Our home is a hormonal minefield. I have a red (2down from black) belt in Hapkido (look it up) and an artificial hip, people wonder about me sometimes.

I had been 'vet shopping' for about a year when a friend recommended Care Animal Clinic. Once I brought my dogs and cats there I never wanted to go anywhere else. The staff are amazing and take excellent care of pets, and their families. I've said goodbye to a beloved family dog there, and brought our rescue dog for his first appointment. My pets have had many different surgeries and treatments, and each and every time we were treated like family. Everyone I've encountered has been professional, competent and also kind, loving and compassionate. I can't imagine a better place to take my pets.
