Freeing Elements and Critters

Freeing Elements 
and hello
on Sunday.

"Hungry man, reach for a book:
It is a weapon."
Bertolt Brecht

Even better, ride a horse.

"The one thing that you have 
that nobody else has is you.

You are the best you, ever!

Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.

Sometimes, you just have to be the decor!
Making the world a better place.

So write and draw and build and play
 and dance and live as only you can."
Neil Gaiman

Hello, my name is Elvis 
I'm only the cutest Alpaca of eight months old, right?

Every life is complicated.
Every mind a kingdom
of unmapped mysteries.
Dean Koontz

Explore everyday!

"No object is mysterious.
The mystery is in your eye."
Elizabeth Bowen

Meet Rex, but you best brush up on your 
Dutch if you wish to speak with this wonderful pup!

Rex get this bad guy!

No bars are gonna hold me back. Watch and see!

"Unhappy the land
that is in need of heroes."
Bertolt Brecht

Elvis we love you!

Look at his adorable Miniature Australian Shepherd
at the Delta ticket counter, getting ready to fly with his family.

Summer vacation is over for Lyra, she starts school on Monday!
We all, and Minnesota are going to miss you until you return again.

Happy first day back at school Lyra.. it's always a wee bit harder after the long summer holidays :( Animal petting farms are so much fun, I can't imagine any child not loving seeing baby animals close up. Have a good week Karen ✨

LOVE your critters. And your quotes. And your attitude.
Here in my city a lovely man takes his alpacas to nursing homes and hospices, where they are very well received. I went to a funeral where they attended too - which was lovely because my friend's mother (whose funeral it was) had her last days brightened by them.
