With Consciousness Barely Floating the Slippery Curve Is Approaching

Also too!

Bamster from Heltsville, Happy Birthday! 

New this last two years ago! Hamster takes in the view from the balcony of his new condo in our Beloved front yard dogwood's tree knot!

COME HIKE WITH US! C sends love from Michigan!


  1. Thanks! I guess I’ve been on my Hamster wheel more than usual lately. I will take steps to rectify that. We both need to see the skunk cabbage in bloom.

  2. 1/happy birthday, h.h., and many more

    2/the tree knot photo reminds me of a favorite walt whitman passage

    “I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain’d, I stand and look at them long and long.

    They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago, Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.”

    2.5/this paints too rosy a picture of animal selfhood, unfortunately - as tennyson noted, nature is red in tooth and claw
