Through the Pane of Glass – Part 19

21 Days From My Window

From my window this morning I see the brown and black dog that belongs to the neighbor. She is standing at the corner of the driveway, gazing down the street. She isn’t supposed to be out of her back yard, but she doesn’t flaunt her freedom by running all over the neighborhood. Instead, she sniffs at every crumpled leaf on the lawn and inspects the four tires of her master’s truck as though she is considering a purchase.

Christmas decorations still adorn the houses across from me, though it is almost two weeks past. The wind snaps and tugs at the flags, and my friends, the trees, stand bare-branched and stoic in the winter morning sun. Maybe the neighbor’s dog stands at the street wishing there were something interesting to see in the neighborhood today. From my vantage point through the pane of glass, it looks like a typical, quiet morning---and that’s a good thing.

I smiled at your description of the dog... kind of sounds like our kitty the way he went about inspecting the tires : ) Hope you had a nice New Year's TanuaLen... you're worrying me a bit that you've been so quiet and I'm hoping you're just taking a bit of a quiet break. You've been in my prayers, nontheless.

So glad to hear you're OK! Sorry Blogland buried you alive while your power was out - LOL! Maybe you should declare blogreader bankruptcy and just start over : )
