Light’s Prayer On Our Shoulders

So I managed to survive another weekend and that means that I have again, come so far as a person. I have so much to do but there is always something so close to me that guides me. The week before was eventful with one dog Bentley whom, is my neighbor’s son’s dog got hurt by her dog: a Rottweiler which I have featured here on my blog. Roxie. Roxie the Rottweiler who is a senior dog through and through as there is gray on her muzzle and body.

Poor Bentley. She’s hurt. 
Believe me, it scared me-no terrified me beyond recognition when Bentley came out of the house limping on three legs and not letting anyone get close to her wounds: two bite marks that had become infected and this is when I asked for help and received it. Dogs are interesting animals as we often put human behaviors and characteristics to them and according to the book I am reading: Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandria Horowitz, which so far is very telling on our relationships towards dogs in a very scientific manner. Do dogs really seem like they like us or understand our world at all? Still, it’s a fascinating read and one you should check out. But in the end, Bentley is healing up nicely and Roxie, for whatever reason did that and now it’s done. It’s over and yet, dogs are complex and complicated animals and one day, they won’t be property anymore, I hope. I can only hope that we have greater understanding for them in the future as we do for other animals.

Bentley will soldier on and is in better spirits as she can now walk on all four paws effortlessly and her wounds are nearly gone, thanks to the diligence of my neighbor and her vast experience and knowledge being around and taking care of dogs for most of her life. She is in her 50’s, while I am entering my 30’s in the next few years but I have so much I don’t know but that’s fine because I figure that I’ll continue learning till I die. I will never stop. Speaking of age, birthday is less than 2 months away with August 08 being the projected day for me. It’s after all the day I was borne into the world for better or worse by a child like mother and older father. As I approach my 28th birthday steadily, I realize that all my life had some kind of meaning and has touched others in vast ways that I can scarcely comprehend. I guess despite what I struggle with inside and out, there is true meaning to my life for I bring joy to others and even to myself. I enjoy life at times with its raging and turbulent winds to docile, calming days all at a greater magnitude of feelings. I feel too much and I won’t apologize for that in the slightest as going from 27 to 28 in just a year, so much has transformed me, so much metamorphoses that goes on in just a year, it’s amazing.

I wondered if I ever told my readers that I re found my old Pokemon cards from the 90’s and started collecting again? I have and to celebrate this fact, here is my old and new stash of different Pikachus and even a few Raichus added in.

Note this is just my Pikachu and Raichu collection only.
 I have various other cards mixing old with new and I couldn’t be more grateful and loving towards a big piece of my childhood. It’s my childhood because it came out when I was in Elementary school and I recently got a chance to snag Pokemon Fire Red for my own and started playing it on a Gameboy Advance SP. It’s amazing how the old and new worlds collide so easily like that and that so much nostalgia can be brought to the forefront. Memories can be a beautiful thing to treasure!

A-Kon 2017 was yesterday and I managed to get in my photoshop with Cat of Silent White, as my cosplay was the lovely and clumsy Usagi Tsukino and I won’t get the pictures for awhile but they are worthwhile because she’s an amazing photographer! I think I am getting more skilled at this cosplay thing..I think?

Props I used in my cosplay photoshoot
More photos of the Danganronpa boys..which means more art!

Somehow, I am becoming better at managing my illness and myself, too, as a person. That’s all we can do. I say it again with vigor and spirit, that I am me and me means taking all the mistakes and responsibilities of being a person. Also, I went back to this layout because of my love for the graphics on this page: The Poster boy, Nagito Komaeda, the Ultimate Lucky Student.
