Resting on the door is the tiny, fuzzy head of a small dog, calmly looking around the street. His owner, sitting in the driver's seat, was wearing glasses and an old-timey "newsy" cap and whispering in his dog's ear.

    There's something about that imagery that is calming to me even now and brings a smile to my face.
    Love this!

    Thanks. On re-read, didn't really do the scene justice, though. But glad it made you smile as it made me.

    Warm weather & Summer. My mood improves dramatically. I smile all the time & love to be outdoors. I even love being inside & looking out the window at the bright sunshiny days.
    I wonder if I'm one of those light-sensitive people.

    Waking up in the middle of the night to find that my cat has crawled under the covers with me.

    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
