The birds and the bees and the trees.

Dear Friends, Wanderers, Travellers, Explorers of this good ole Earth,

I miss straying about with me mother along empty pathways, she holding on to she roller-stroller with the seat, and me waffling ahead, then going back to she.

As per normal, the conversation would go something like this:

Me: Look! Black sage.

Ma: That ain't black sage!

Me: But you tollllllld me it is.

Ma: I never said that.

Me: But that is exactly like the plant that you say is black sage.

Ma: Nooooooo. That is NOT black sage.

Me: Well, you tooooooold me........

After we finish getting vex, we would walk on, stop, admire a wild flower. A bee. The trees rustling. A li'l red bird flittering. Sunlight on leaves on the ground. 

As you can see, we love nature. 

And, we is...well...curious...hehe...

Now, pain blasting Ma from shoulder to back, so fierce, she struggle to go for walks. They say it is arthritis. It trouble me like hell to see she hurting. 

I hope, after she do some tests, they can decide for sure what is causing this awful pain, and maybe they can treat it. And we can go back to straying and...(cough cough)...discussing (ahem) what we see.

She teach me this word for walking about: choochwai. The "ch" is like in 'chair', and the "wai" is like 'why'.

Once I sort out me photos, I gon show you some o' them things we see in Florider.

Have a lovely weekend, stay curious and happy and safe.

Plenty lurve, neena xxx


  1. Pain is a beast. I so hope that your mother can get some relief and that both of you can walk, wonder and delight again.

    1. Child, pain is indeed a beast. Every day, I am watching my mother suffer, and I can't do anything about it except do whatever she asks me to do. I feel so sad for her. My sister too is suffering from pain in her foot, and the Big Master (her place of work) has her, like other employees, walking for 8 hours a day.

    2. Pain is often an invisible disability which those who have not felt it choose to ignore. It is wrong of me but I do hope that people like the Big Master experience pain, and think back about their behaviour.

    3. Child, the Big Master tends to have the best doctors, doesn't he? And when he does feel pain, he has the best to help him, and he thinks how lucky he is.

      I would love to know if he remembers his workers, his serfs.

      Hugs to you too. I hope you're starting to feel even a little better.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about the pain your mother is facing. I hope it can be treated.

    1. Joey, thank you so very much. I hope your eye is getting
