I still haven't stretched my canvas. It's so big I don't know where I'm going to work on it. Sometimes, I only look at the dogs on my walks. One German Shepherd was 1/3rd of the way out the window, her tongue trailing along like a flag. She was enjoying herself, every bit. A blond poodle filled the window of the car. And the beagle bayed at nothing because that's what beagles do.

I go on call tomorrow.

At night, very late, I go outside to walk on the cold grass and sit with my garden. Even in the dark, the peonies are open.

One of my favorite things is to see an old redneck man in a truck with a poodle in his lap, all groomed and prissy, head out the window, man happy to be that dog's daddy.
I like thinking of you sitting in the dark, smelling your peonies.

O yes, dogs on laps, dogs in baby carriers on people's chests, dogs in trailers behind bicycles.

The peonies are big and red and falling on their faces.

I just discovered peony-joy. I can buy them at the grocery store. I doubt they will grow in Texas. Nothing but evil grows here.

I grow Boston terriers here and revolutions.
