Let the Sun Shine

What could be more emblematic of this season of renewal than this precious, back-from-the-dead creature?

This is the last photo I have of Patrick, which I borrowed from Lia, Zoe & Friends. I don’t see it in the gallery kept by Associated Humane Societies and Popcorn Park Zoo, so I’m not sure where it originally came from. Since I first blogged about Patrick, AHS has had to take measures to protect his photos because…well, read for yourself. It’s weird and irritating.

Anyway, in this pic, Patrick seems enchanted by the sunlight and the smells around him. Perhaps a little Edna St. Vincent Millay is going through his head…

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not hurt one.
—from “Afternoon on a Hill” (a dog’s version)
