There’s a pony in there, somewhere…….

……….along with the light at the end of the tunnel, just beyond the corner we’re about to turn, under an apple tree.

In the land of comfortable, forgetful conformity.

The Hero’s Journey…….

November 16, 2010

I swear, I will be grey before my time.

Since Skosh has come to live with me for a time without limit, he has grown a bit…more than a bit, as dragons tend to do.  He is now as tall as my shoulder, which would make him about 5’5″ and getting bigger every day, goddess help me.  He is, to all intents and purposes. a teen with a mind(?) of his own and a desire to make friends outside the home.  This is all very well, though one hopes he will connect with appropriate companions.  So far, so good.

His new buddy is Redneck the hummingbird, of whom I heartily approve.  A delightful and pleasant young man, he has attached himself to the family by greeting us as we arrive home by thrilling by on his lovely little wings and yelling at the top of his lungs, such as they are, “DUUUUUUUUUDE!   WAASSSSUPPPPP!”  and streaking away to other purposes.  he seems to be a constant ,pleasant…and safe…companion for our Skosh.

This afternoon when i came home from my acupuncture appointment, I was greeted by a twirling  Skosh, whipping his tail stream and ‘tktktktktk’ing a lot, which always makes me nervous.  “momtktktktk…” “momi, i, i, tktk…”  okay, Skosh, out with it….come on…. “mom we, um , we, um um, Neckers an me we umtktktktk.”

Oh, no.  Okay, Skosh…get to the point.  “Mom we umtk tk want to gocampingandfishingtktktktktk.” Ah.  Permission to go off for a weekend and be guys. Ahhhh.  A weekend without noise, a weekend to clean the soot off the walls….YES YES YES!!   Why of course, Skosh, you and Redneck may go camping! What a LOVELY idea!! (Oh,please…please…)

Then the packing began.  The tent with a branch in it for Neckers to sleep on, the sleeping hot pad for Skosh, and most  especially….a large flask of Old Lizard Breath for Skosh ( I do not approve but…) And for Neckers , a thimble of Highfly (fermented nectar)  and of course clothing,  such as it is.  Don’t ask.  And, of couse, weenies in case no fish are caught, which is a good possibility.  Redneck eschews weenies but says he can always find a rogue flower or two for sustenance….after all, living in the wild, one needs to hunt for one’s supper.  he does not include Wasilla, Alaska, as “living in the wild”.

So, the packing begins, and we shall see what becomes of our stalwarts when they return with stories of bravery and brilliance.  Let us hope for the best.

Dracoae because there are two of them. They just appeared. They say they’re related to Skosh

I’m entering  a local photography show, and I’m thinking that maybe I need to explain that my entries really are photographs.  This one for example.

Urban Forest is a composite of two images derived from this photograph.
