Winter Symphony 

“Silence echoed through the chilly air like soundwaves frozen in time, reverbing off trees throughout the sparsely populated forest, nature’s vibrations muffled under a blanket of fluffy snow, a woodsy winter wonderland bathed in a soft, frosty glow.” ~ Lisa Pearlman 12/15/14

Renewal

Tree branches stand naked and erect during the Winter season…like intersecting veins, they cross and change direction…forked serpentine tongues extending upwards in winding randomness… as time passes, so the life cycle continues… filling in the lonely gaps and broken lines with silky blooms and warm colors… erasing the wreckage from the previous season and leaving in its absence new hopes, planting the seedling dreams in hopes of creating a fresh crop of memories.   © 2016 Lisa Pearlman

R.I.P. Spaz

 My sweet Babyboy became suddenly ill last week with a rare, genetic virus “Feline Infectious Peritonitis.” Within 3 days he was hospitalized inpatient in diabetic shock with acute ketoacidosis.

2/19/16 

I am heartbroken and devastated. Spaz, my beloved companion for the past 8 years has left his earthly body, after being stricken ill suddenly last week, by a rare untreatable genetic FIP virus “Feline Infectious Peritonitis.” It rapidly took him down and took over his body and organ systems within days. I held him in my arms as he took his last breath. The week before he was my spazzy full of life cat with a voracious appetite and a mischievous mind. Now he is gone and don’t know how I will go on…I feel like I will never be happy again. He is forever in my heart. 

Sleep with the Angels sweet baby boy. I love you. Until we meet again…

Prayer Request

imageMy dear friends,

Please pray for my Babyboy SPAZ…during the past week he became ill, saw the vet Wednesday, then over a 24-hour period he stopped all activity & stopped eating. I brought him to hospital for inpatient emergency care – he may have a rare virus called Feline Infectious Peritonitis for which there is no treatment & breaks his systems down rapidly. On top of that, he is in diabetic crisis with acute ketoacidosis. He was a normal healthy active cat up until 2 weeks ago – now he is unable to eat or drink or move. I am devastated – he has always been strong & hardy…only 8 years old! PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM, PRAY FOR A MIRACLE. I already have paid $3,800 in 2 days to at least give him a fighting chance – I owe that to him & more – he is the light of my life! It is in God’s hands now. He is my miracle cat, I got him at 8 weeks old on the day my brother passed, 8 years ago. He was born from a miraculous conception, his feline mom mating with a Siamese male who lived in the same household & had just been NEUTERED!
Thank you for your prayers… Love & Light … Namasté … Lisa #OneLove

Prayer for Humanity 


May we learn from history and not repeat the same mistakes. May we learn from non-human animals that gratuitous violence and killing is not inherent in our animal nature, but rather a result of the deliberative process and conscious free-will by which humans choose to act (ironically, it is this evolved higher order of thinking that separates humans from animals.)

It is, ultimately, up to us, as rational, thinking beings to decide our common fate. Together, as one cohesive unit, we must make a choice that benefits and preserves humankind, the animal kingdom and our shared home planet.

Choose LOVE not Hate, PEACE not War!

My Sunset 

Here is an animated gif created from several of my sunset shots, allowing me to revisit one moment in time.

Captive Beauty 

If I could save the sky in a bubble, 

capture clouds and horizon so blue,

I would be relieved of the mind-numbing trouble 

of describing their beauty to you.

   

If I could save the sunset in a bottle, 

The first thing that I’d want to do,

Is replace all your heartache and suffering

With the glow of divine love and truth.
