When It Comes to Predicting Behavior How Can We Really Know?

Posted on

We all are sensitive to stereotypes.  When it comes to our pets we rely on on a certain level of predictability.   Dogs act this way.   Cats act that way.   The truth is there really are no rules.  We can’t predict how animals will behave in certain situations.  A recent YouTube video is an example.

 

 

 

 

 

Your Space: Paws Make the Difference

Although she still comes to  Brookland, DC periodically for a visit, Koko spends most of her time now at  her Philadephia residence with CCL.  The Philly townhouse does not provide much in terms of yard space but it does have a spacious basement where Koko seems quite content. After more cement was added,  Koko  put her own decorating touches on the floor of the basement in CCL’s  house.  HGTV take note!

 

Friends and Editors

Posted on

We all need friends and as we grow older we need them even more.  How do you choose friends?  The best friends are gentle editors.  They may lead by example and help you develop a draft.  They offer a suggestion and help you determine whether to put a comma or a period in a situation. Envy is not in their vocabulary.   When your life narrative is off course, they help you get back on track.  Still, we must take ultimate responsibility for our life decisions.

It takes time for some of us to become editor-in-chief of our own lives.  We are often thwarted when toxic grammar or false facts interrupt our flow.  It helps to remember our friends are there to guide us with God as publisher.

Here Is Wonderful

Posted on

For  many  2016 was a tough year.  For some including me it was a time  to let go of some situations and people who were not conducive to personal or professional growth.  We’re here  now  -2017 has arrived.  The New Year brings us promise  and hope for positive change.   As I move in a new  direction  with a new year  in bloom, despite challenges, there is a  is a lot to be grateful for  and I am happy that I am present.    I learned to enjoy life without the need for prestige.   I have a wonderful group of friends I enjoy.   I  live in a wonderful neighborhood, Brookland, DC.  It has taken  me years to get to a place where I choose peace and I am still not an expert.   It helps that Koko is one of my “life coaches.”    Though she likes attention,  for Koko it’s often a  matter of finding the right box for a nap.
