Happy New Year ! 1.1.11


Wha...? I'm awake. What's up?

That? I don't know where that came from. It's not mine.

*pppbbbbbttt. Yeah, right. There is no way I drank that!

Can I please go now?

Jacques-Louis David, The Oath of the Horatii, circa 1784

Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Apollo and Daphne, marble, circa 1622-1625

I want to wish all - humans and animals - a very glorious and wonderful New Year of 2011! May love, happiness, health, peace, joy, harmony, and beauty find their way into every aspect of life on Earth.

The start of a New Year is a good time to initiate new ideas, so you will be seeing changes to my blog. Time to mix it up a bit! One of my changes will be to incorporate depictions of man-made beauty into my blog. My human, K, and I want 2011 to be known as the year that beauty, goodness, kindness, and harmony made a comeback. K and I will do our part to encourage beauty to flourish on Earth by using beautiful words, thinking beautiful thoughts, doing beautiful deeds, and creating and sharing beautiful images. It is truly breathtaking to see what Man is capable of when inspired to be the absolute best, when striving to reach perfection, and when taping into the infinite source of creativity that imagination brings. Of course, it is a given that beauty reached its pinnacle when I was born. I am the archetype of beauty that all inspire to reach! I am just waiting for a wealthy art patron to commission a marble statue of me. I'm just sayin'...

Happy New Year to all of woo too!

We had empty bottles here as well - ours were Prosekhkho ;-)

Someone's mom was up WAY too late!

Ahem...so that bottle just happened to roll over by you, right???!! "I'm just sayin'...!!!" LOL! We wish you a wondrous New Year! Stay beautiful, Suka!

Dear Suka, it looks as though you might be in need of some "hair of the dog!"

You and K have a very admirable goal of bringing about a reawakening of the appreciation of beauty. While statues are exquisite examples of what humans can create, remember, there is nothing more beautiful than a pup resting his head on his human's lap in comfort...or a human stretching out a hand to lift up another. Or all of us paw and hand joined in the Power of the Paw to help those in need.

We hope that one day soon we can have these discussions with you in person.

We wish you and Silvius and Porgy and K a new year filled with health, opportunity, safety, magic, adventure, delight, yes, beauty...and always, LOVE!

Are you trying to tellus you were "framed"??? You do look sleepy so maybe you partied on New Year's Eve....
We also wish you a VERY Happy New Year and are looking forward to your changes. We do hope that you Suka are included in the beauty - cuz you are!!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You would so LOVE our cold, Suka! I am all for blanket surfing but my crazy brother, Quinn, likes to go outside and lie under the tree until he feels like a polar bear when he comes in!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Hi Suka,
Thank you for sending healing energy to my sister, Puff. She is home from her final Heartworm dose at the Vet and now we just believe and hope that in 4 months when she is retested that those icky worms will be gone! We believe that all of your wonderful prayers and woofs have helped saved her life!

Mom is dying of curiosity about the questions K has!
