After a day filled with swimming in the pool and catching Frisbees at the park, Buster, my grand-dog, wasn’t busting any more moves. Although still a pup, his grandparents managed to wear him out. By the time his parents came home from their honeymoon, a few weeks later, he was one tired dog. Life’s tough when you’re a spoiled puppy!
#1 – Hallie Paints
I love animals and I’m a sucker for dogs. Knowing that about me, you’ll understand why I had to post about a blind dog who paints and raises money for an animal rescue program. Read Hallie’s story, watch her paint, and then take a look at some of her work. Perhaps, you have the perfect spot in your home for one of Hallie’s works of art?

#3 – Time for a Shuffle Break?
Sometimes my blog posts write themselves and sometimes they need a little more help. Whenever I feel creatively blocked, I seek out one of my block-busters. Besides twirling my Greek worry beads and turning the handle on a little music box that plays “If I only had a brain,” playing computer games also helps me to relax and channel my creativity, not to mention procrastinate. Here’s a game called Shuffle that I just discovered. Play it and see if it doesn’t help you unwind a bit.
#4 – A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
To visit photographer Steve McCurry’s blog is to go on a journey – a journey around the world and into the lives of others. His photographs provoke emotion and the accompanying quotes inspire.
#5 – Internally and Eternally Young
“Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old.”
― Douglas MacArthur
