I wrote a poem tonight:
The Ultimate Gabriola Experience (#23):
a semi-mystical moment with the dog and the frogs in the pond across the road.
Gracie and I were in the living room, and there was something somewhere that startled her, so of course she had to go outside to check. When I opened the door for her, the frogs were singing SO loud, and I could see the almost full moon through the trees. It was just so beautiful I wished I could record it somehow. No cell phone, so I got the camera and did a video, just for the sound.
The frogs were in full throat,
the cedars were dripping and misting, the moon
Except... .for the sound

And I am also sending out love and hope to an island family in crisis tonight. Search and Rescue, and RCMP, have been searching all day for a missing senior who has been lost for 36 hours now. There have been some heavy rains and he is in a forested and steep area. Now I know why they always say, "We are all praying for his safe return."
