Time and Time Again


Breaking the bonds of earth.

Have you seen me lately?

The light at the end of the tunnel is about to come. Not for the United States, which is shredded beyond recognition. Today that isn’t at top of mind.

The all seeing dog, Sophie Rose, is in my head. She had her dental appointment today. Oh boy. The right side of her jaw has a very bad infection. She had four teeth pulled, kinda. When the vet started to pull them, they just sort of popped out. The bone was infected and some was a little crumbly.

Sounds terrible, yes?

It isn’t. The holes where the teeth were are already healing, because the teeth were so loose. She’s going to be in a lot of pain for the next couple of days. She is getting a high end narcotic, that I apply with a syringe, without a needle. She’s getting an injection and more antibiotics. She’ll be hurting for a day or two. She should be looking pretty good in about ten days when she returns to her vet.

There’s one more thing. Jaw infections can be indicative of something worse. Cancer. Her vet says he 80% sure that it isn’t going to be cancer. .

I just hate this. Not that Sophie is sick. That happens to all of us. But, the pain. I can’t stand it. You know the pain that I had been suffering through. Forget that. If I could carry her pain I would. She’s such a sweet, loyal and happy dog, that she doesn’t deserve this.

You know my next request.

Have a good thought for her. Pray to whoever your higher power happens to be. Oh, yeah. You might think about us too.

In case you are wondering, she comes home tonight.

The picture.

Storyteller is supposed to be about photography. About art. Throw in a little design, and you’ve got it.

So.

The picture. It was a normal end of the day thing. It wasn’t very special. I started playing with it. First, I made the perfect picture. Meh. It met all the so called technical standards. Meh. I tweaked it a lot. Meh.

Then.

I was using one group of settings. I accidently pulled the slider too far. Ah Ha! Something interesting. I worked on it from there. This is what I made. Something a little different. Some dark and brooding. Something that is almost evil.

It’s not.

It may be about my day. It’ll get better. I am sure of that.

Stay safe. Enjoy every sandwich.

    1. Done. But, you know the bluish Black & White picture of the couple on 31 May’s post. I know the photographer who made that picture. You probably should use another picture.
