Critters and Places

Posting for 

It's time again for


Who goes there 
so silently
and deliberately
 in such a creepy, crawling manner
afoot in my post?

Even Dash has caught sight of


and featuring story words by
(words, and phrase in italic blue)

Are you ever drawn to certain places, over and over again? 

"I was just wondering could you solve this little argument?"

Some people call them our"Happy Place"
I like to think of them as mere places we've been
with enormous memories
that bring joy each time we remember them.

A wee bit closer

"What you listen in heart,
are echoes of the past.
What you right today,
will be echoed in the future."
Toba Beta

"But what is memory if not the language of feeling,
a dictionary of faces and days and smells which repeat themselves like the verbs and adjectives in a speech, 
sneaking in behind the thing itself, 
into the pure present, making us sad or teaching us vicariously."
Juli Cortazar

So that someone

could be anyone really,

just hanging about or perhaps engaged in a game of hopscotch

feeling all the more hotter as the sun shines brightly overhead
catching what could be a hoaxer
always at the ready to
conjure up another trick
 or dispel all common sense
all in the name of good fun
to keep folks from being too

So what do you think, 
can you help solve this argument?

Hello, Karen! Yes, I have my happy places with some very happy memories. Love the furbabies and the young policeman.

Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Love the quote and pictures that make you happy Karen. Have a good weekend!

Cute dogs. I think the one wants some beer.


Of course I return many times to certain areas....they don't necessarily have to be 'happy' places. I visit when I can cemeteries too, knowing that so many good memories can arise by just one name on the headstone....y'know?

Love the photo shares
