Meet Zoey. Zoey is staring out the window at the grey skies as the rain splashes on her "used to be spotless" windows. She looks for her bird friends who entertain her most afternoons, but they are nowhere to be found. Even the squirrels, who don't usually get a second glance from her, are not out skipping from roof to tree to roof again. Not even the courtyard mouse, who usually sneaks out to collect his share of bird seed scattered below the feeder, is out on this dreary day. Zoey feels blah.
I feel you Zoey. I really do. I look out the window and feel blah too. I read the paper and feel even more blah. I try to catch up on Facebook...but with each harsh word I read my stomach begins to feel tied up in knots. I flip on the television and catch the news....really bad idea....so I turn the tv off.
I guess the best thing to do Zoey, is to just curl up on the sofa with you, the two dogs, the other cat, a cozy blanket, cup of coffee and a good book. We all need to escape the world around us sometimes. These days it seems like we need to do it even more often. I feel like maybe once spring arrives and the sun comes out and your bird friends return and my flower friends return....maybe just maybe everything will feel right with the world again. Until then we can escape the humdrum of today and dream of spring through photos.
