“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Immortalizing Murphy

Murphy has been honored with his own art work. Terry from 'Songs from the Garden" has created a collage of felt and fabric that was inspired by my story of Murphy dancing during the cycle of the full moon on June 16. Go to her site (terrybusse.blogspot.com) and at the bottom right side of the page click on Murphy's Midnight Dance. You will love what she does. Her art work will be in a children's art show at the Davis Art Center, here in Northern Ca. in August. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you, Terry.













Brownie?

How did you get your face in this post? This is all about Murphy today.
We know you're cute. Now scoot.

I will be going out this evening to tell Murphy about the wonderful results of his mysterious behavior story. I'm sure he will be very pleased. We may not be able to live with him for a while...., but maybe he'll do a dance for us.

Reminds me of part of a Bishop poem:
"I’d heard of cattle getting island-sick. I thought the goats were. One billy-goat would stand on the volcano I’d christened Mont d’Espoir or Mount Despair (I’d time enough to play with names), and bleat and bleat, and sniff the air.

Thank you. I so enjoyed making the art. He and brownie are very cute. I wish I could have goats here. I can live through Murphy and Brownies goat adventures.
I enjoy your writing and your spin on what your animals are really doing.
Thanks
Terry
