Down below, the sights were far far far more delightful with El Senor Dulce Pantalones leaning on the warm cement, his green eyes recently awakened from his day nap.
I knew that up above a feathery treat was sitting far from reach allowing only mental pleasures
yet demanding inspection from more than one angle.
There it is, a very ordinary bird looking especially good at this hour and nicely tucked between the spiny palm branches.
And here is my other eye pleasure, ElSenorHinchadosPantalones, Ollie. He too appeared not entirely awake- the long afternoon nap had exhausted him!
I was not quite sure whether to read to the boys or dance or play music...and so I decided to read a favorite of Guss':
"Having recognized thy powerlessness to attain to an adequate understanding of that Reality which abideth within thee, thou wilt readily admit the futility of such efforts as may be attempted by thee, or by any of the created things to fathom the mystery of the Living God, the Day Star of unfading glory, the Ancient of everlasting days. This confession of helplessness which mature contemplation must eventually impel every mind to make is in itself the acme of human understanding, and marketh the culmination of man's development."

We wish everyone a happy weekend with a lot of delicious cat kisses!
