We  live in moments. Dexter and Hannah seem to manage and appreciate the moment fully without any effort. Dexter has now been seven years with us . . . so, well done Dexter. You have survived.

The rain has returned.Perhaps it may be true for human beings, but especially me, I hear the sound of running water in the creek, and forget that just a few days ago it had stopped running in some places, although it continued to run in others. Somehow life recovers. The croaking of frogs can be heard from disconnected pools of water that were recently dry. If the water gets running, life will somehow return to the creek.

While I have to be careful, I do let Hannah off. And sometimes she is able to bound over the open ground. There are times when she will stop to give Dexter and me time to catch up with her.

Dexter’s trick is to go roadrunning. I was silly enough to put what my inadequate measures, to stop him getting out and jumping down 2 metres. He went up a few house away to visit Maia. Dexter goes in following a steep drive way. The next I hear is Maia barking and Dexter comes running out – I like to think because I called him. Maia follows and then collapses in a heap. She is picked up, but now I am concerned since I have not heard her today.

It is our common fate to here one moment and gone the next. Photos can freeze those transient memories.

Emmylou Harris sings, “Life is just a passing moment on a never ending trail. . .” The first song is “Someday My Ship Will Sail”, which is a common fate:

“There should be sunshine after rain.” Dexter is getting better with age. He drove into our front yard seven years ago. Similarly the same can be said for Emmylou Harris, which may be related to the company she keeps, Here she joins a set of musicians including Mark Knopfler to sing “Why Worry”:

We will attempt to board Friday Ark at Modulator – hoping not to get chased away.

As usual there was a painful process of selection decisions, but otherwise Picasa was used to organize the photos.

Hopefully, the fender incident in LA will be resolved in a way that does not affect Belle.

Hannah would probably like to hear the song:
