Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

It has been another great week. BG has been able to have the porch open and it is nice to be outside.
Here we are waiting for BG to let us out.
It nice to be able to patrol our yard and also we like to see the leaves which are nice now and actually BG said it is fun for us to have us hide in the leaves because they have turned to look like us.
These pictures show us hiding in the leaves.
We were watching BG take pictures of all of us.
We like being out.
Todd came out and took treats from her.
Then BG took pictures of her.
A little nap after our photo shoot.
Then BG did a sneaking photo of us sleeping.
BG loves it when he catches us sleeping.
Thanks for stopping to see us. See you next week.

"Were I to be the founder of a new sect, I would call them Apiarians, and, after the example of the bee, advise them to extract the honey of every sect."
- Thomas Jefferson
"I love the smell of the universe in the morning."
~Neil deGrasse Tyson
“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
"Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder."
― E.B. White
You are not a drop in the ocean.
You are the entire ocean in a drop.
Love, compassion, joy, and equanimity are the very nature of an enlightened person. They are the four aspects of true love within ourselves and within everyone and everything.
~Thich Nhat Hahn
Be the flower that gives its fragrance even to the hand that crushes it.
~ Hz. Ali
God changes his appearance every second. Blessed is the man who can recognize him in all his disguises.
~Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek
You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.

This may be the last fall grouping of photos for this year, as I think I have covered about as much as I am able. There will soon be some winter shots (no big rush for that!), and other images will present themselves to me and of course I will shoot them. So for now here is this last group of 18 images, with no caption on them, for they visually speak for themselves, as they display a collection of themes we associate with this beautiful time of the year.
