Some Pleasure, Some Sorrow

The loss of Molly has been hard to deal with, and most likely it’s only pet owners or former pet owners who will be able to fully grasp our sadness.
15 years of living with the same dog is a long time and the attachment will stay on whether the dog is there or not. 1-DSC_0658

1-DSC_0666To help getting our minds into a more positive direction we decided today that we would do a hike to Sunsweep Sculpture, which always has been my favorite hike on the island. Clear skies and a dark blue sea mixed with the colours of fall, the quietness of the forest accompanied by the surf of the waves and rolling pebbles made this day perfect for enjoying nature.
1-DSC_0671Even though this trail is usually not crowded, today we were the absolut only ones enjoying the area. The bright sun and the reflection on the water made the area warmer than expected. Before soon I threw of my jacket and I would have walked without my sweater if I wouldn’t have to carry it. Hard to believe that this was October 18 on the east coast.

An incredible paradise of peace indeed.


  1. Molly was a beautiful girl, You and Bea will miss her forever. It's the very worst part of opening your hearts and lives to a precious pet. Kelly

  2. I'm Still Here

    Friend, please don't mourn for me
    I'm still here, though you don't see.
    I'm right by your side each night and day
    and within your heart I long to stay.

    My body is gone but I'm always near.
    I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
    My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
    as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

    I'll never wander out of your sight-
    I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
    I'll never be beyond your reach-
    I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

    I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
    and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
    I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
    The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

    I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
    The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
    I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
    and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
