Sunset Silence

Taking in the softly lit sky and coastline beneath the setting sun, I heard the silence whispering in the wind. Can you hear it?

The soothing sounds of silence of a setting sun over the Gulf of Mexico create ambient grooves that move a spirit to a place of serenity like none other. The sky sets the mood for the day's drudgery to drift away, smothered by the sea.

The sky beckons me to touch the dim reflections of the day as they wash out to sea, with mind, body, and soul cleansed by nature's artistry. As the sunset closes the day I am able to hear the promise of a sunrise in the making, for surely (as Annie sings) the sun will come out tomorrow.

And, it did on this sunshine Sunday!

Dance to Music of Sunshine

I have this serene little spot in my yard that I often sit, with my dog after a walk or while reading. Sometimes I just gaze at the shadow play on the fence as the sunshine dances to the sound of the music of the wind whispering through the old Florida oak trees and the figs and the ferns.

Today I smiled as my sun garden stakes became the shadows dancing on the wall of the fence. The wind whistled through the trees and the spinners and chimes hanging on the branches.

And I danced!

I do believe someone was watching but I danced to the tune of my own spirit ... Sol. Actually, my dog was watching and I am sure he thought I had totally lost my sanity, ha!

Here is a picture I took of my little sunshine serenity dance on the fence.



Here is a postcard I created from the photo using my Corel Paint Shop Pro graphics program.

Sunday Sunshine Shelter Dog

View the adoption Option on Amazon
When I found myself feeling way down low over the passing of my dog Tidbit I visited a local animal shelter to walk a dog. Little did I know then that a docile hound dog in a shelter kennel would become the sunshine of my life.

We choose the shelter dog adoption option! But of course, we hope that you shall too.

My shelter dog Valentino has an important message to share with you. We put it on a postcard so that you shall share it too!


By the way... The sun hanging on the wall above my dog Valentino on the sofa was a handmade gift to me from my son William. He welded it out of scrap iron.

Read more about the dogs who are, or have been, a bit o' sunshine in my heart and home at Dog Pawsitive Tidbits.
