Am I worthy????

There is this little man that came into my life last September….

The bubbliest little monster I could have ever asked for… He’s been mentioned in previous posts of my late Jesse… And a very few close friends have met him.

He became Jesse’s best friend in a matter of minutes… Met up to Pets As Therapy as their AGM face… and following the crossing over of Jesse, has stepped into the biggest of shoes and has stood firmly on his ground….

2011 is taking shape

No joke on this one… 2011 started off rather crappy for me….

Amidst losing my girl…. work was crap… tensions were high… Enzo has been depressed and the rest of  my life has been a HUGE question mark….

Re-adjust Irvin…. and FAST!

I’m glad that I had Enzo with me… and he has been begging for attention in any form….

This was the week that all the changes happened….

1. Enzo’s training was confirmed… and he isn’t starting off in puppy class.. he is going straight to beginner’s (which is a step above puppy)

The control….

So 2010 happened… and 2011 is here now…

Strange how we don’t have any control over the days… the weeks … months and years… and too have control over life…

I have said cherio to my Jesse, understanding it was her time to leave and will be facing 2011 without her…  this which I didn’t have control over either…..

Today was day 3 without her…. yes  - I’m carrying on about my girl…(hell it’s still wrenching my heart guys – so I’m allow to…) but I never thought my Enzo would step up to standards and so quickly as well… I took my little boy out to the dam this afternoon – he was so well behaved…. subdued and very ‘pa-vas’….. but a knight in shining armour, greeting everyone and touching souls…. (A touch clearly passed down from my girl…)

It too was incredible seeing his reaction to the change in the pack-leader…. Jesse wasn’t there… it was Irvin who was in charge now… ((footnote – Enzo is lying next to me farting to the high heavens!!!!) -is this payback or something????

Sitting at the dam this afternoon I realised from these past few days that we have very little control over life… yet we throw out judgement endlessly in our chosen forms…

As humans we believe we are superior to all beings… Yet must realise and know that we are indeed apart of the food-chain – and will soon go to the earth as all others….

What the hell am I doing here….

There are times that I just sit back and wonder… and think…. and wonder what the hell am I doing here…

When I look back on these past few years… it seems that everything has just become more intense. Living life has become more of a challenge, people have become more difficult… and slowly… it seems life has just become so bloody intense that it may not be worth trying anymore…

2010 had to be one of my most intense years… One thing I will have to admit up to is that July was filled with absolute jubilation with the FIFA World Cup and all the celebrations… At that time – it was the first and most realistic time that all South African’s were lifted off to a different planet of BEing… just to BE and bask in the awesomeness of oneness….

But the Soccer World Cup ended… the flags were taken down and everyone was to get about their normal lives once again…. Me included…

August hit me with a blast.

I was once again lost in my world of dreams of doing’s and being’s…. going to the same mundane job that paid the bills, battled at my photography and getting things out, my animal communications were failing dismally … and to top it off, I had to trench through the final weeks of a self-inflicted ‘self-development’ course which brought up more crap in my life than I would actually like to have contended with at  that stage…

There too was another failed relationship…

Of course…. my smiley face and jubilant personality still burst out to everyone… and I hid my misery… Sharing it only with my Jesse….

Then the fairy tale began when a man in shining armour stepped up to my desk one afternoon… with a request that I just couldn’t say no to…

Nah…. he wasn’t MY man in shining armour…. he was merely a client from a year ago who came back asking me to take care of his Golden Retriever… He and his family were due to immigrate to Australia in a few months and they couldn’t bare the thought of putting their boy through all the shit and quarantine restrictions and asked if I would take him on…. Here is were I met another family of friends…..

So – My photography was a hit!!

It’s 13 days before Christmas… but, today we had to have our family Christmas lunch because sister-darling is jetting off to Cape Town for a few weeks of holiday… with that… this morning was Christmas shopping… and I had to finish it all in all of 4 hours!!!!!

Not the ideal for a Librian who needs WEEKS for this type of stuff!!! However, my partner Curt and I (BOTH Librian’s) made a HUGE success of getting it all done in the required time!!!

Here was the twist and a mark for Irvin Sammons as a photographer! I’m YET to print ANY of my photos!!!! Strange and weird as it may seem, but it’s a fact!

The printing was to start today!

When I got my 50mm prime lens about a month ago, I took a ton of pics of my sister’s children and decided that some of the pics would be the perfect gift for her Christmas gift….

Although I really had to narrow them down to all of two pics! One of Blade and one of Spyder…

Pic number one is of Blade.. and thank goodness for Curt helping me choose a more subtle pic of the boy!

And then there is the other child… Spyder…

With these two pics… I decided to blow them up to A2…. And that is friggin HUGE!!!!  The results… Well…. AWESOME!!!! Pin sharp focus, perfect colour and just all round.. two beautiful pics…… Aside from  these two… I decided to print some of my favourite pics from my Salt Rock holiday…. taking my prints to the most amazing photo lab in there world for printing… AGFA Greenstone… ..
