wander project caption Tuesday!

Today two different pictures for Caption Tuesday. We expanded the caption contest from Thursday to Tuesday and Thursday. I thought today I would share a different type of image. The first one is of a boat in the air being cleaned. My initial Caption was looking at the person below and thinking the person is saying, “sir, you can’t boat here.” It seems like what you would mean seeing a boat in the air. Can ships fly, right? I mean, the ship in Peter Pan sailed. So boats can ultimately fly! So can taxis, but that is a different question overall. Well, it is a song by Harry Chapin, but you get the idea. The concept is flying boats and flying cabs. Sometimes the flying cab thing will be more universal, I think.

The second picture is the movie poster from a movie. I will freely admit that I cried in the film “A Dog’s Purpose.” The film talks about the love of a dog and a boy that is later rekindled with a man and a dog. The dog, living many lives between the two meetings, but the connection was there. It speaks to the universal love of dogs for humans. When you are kind to a dog, the return is so much higher. I know that my dog loves me without thought or rules. That makes me happy in the end. Not that I am loved, many people in my life love me. That I am loved by a dog who thinks I know what I am doing and doesn’t question my goals or ask me to slow down.

A funny story about my dog, he and I used to walk near some woods. The woods were full of deer (they are a government facility, no hunting allowed). A rutting buck came tearing around the corner. Rutting bucks don’t always see straight, and they don’t care who is in their way. So, as we turned the corner, we were in the way. I have heard my dog growl twice since he came to live with us. Once was at me while playing, the other time was when the deer popped up. The deer stooped, looked at my dog bounded off the way he had come.  I guess in the end, that is love carried to the extreme. Willing to do anything to protect the people you love!

excuse me sir you can’t boat here…

beyond love?

  1. “Every dog happens for a reason, the reason is its purpose”

    Is this true, with all parts of creation, and with me too, what is God’s (creation’s) reason for me, and what is my purpose?

    Our purpose’s are all the same, in a way.

    It is to involve our self in our self, so that God is seen through us, and then we become a customised vehicle for his love, with a unique way of living from it, and explaining it, and giving it to others too.

    Dog’s surely always do this, without overthinking about it, like we so often do.

    • as always you raise an interesting question. The purpose of dogs, to me it seems their purpose is to love without question.

      I think, based on some of the horrible owners I’ve met they should love with questions but they don’t/ They love without question.

      • You are right, dogs love without question, but I believe that some mother’s love the same way, their children.

        My own mother died about a year and a half ago now, and unfortunately, about the only time that I told her that I really loved her, was a week, or two before she died.

        I am mostly in my head, and I find it rather hard to talk openly out loud from my heart.

        Unfortunately, my Dad died before I could say that to him too, but then again, I do not know if I really wanted to say it to him either, but perhaps I should have, before he died.

        Anyway, since my mother died, she comes to me in my dreams sometimes, or she talks to me during special moments, saying something special to me.

        This is what she told me recently, and it made me rather sad, in some ways too.

        “I loved you from the day you were born, to the day l died, and yet, at times, l felt that you did not love me.

        “That is a mother’s lot though, and l was glad when, near the end of my life, you said to me, “l love you, mum.”‘

        • i suspect you were you. The edges we find rough as children are polished by experience and time.

          The reality of honesty, sometimes is that as children we say what we think. But we do not always say what is the truth.

          The truth is the reflection of how rounded our edges are, how complete our ability to step beyond our own emotional response and that is the goal of a parent.

          There are many models that one can use to build the perfect person, but the most successful models are the ones designed to produce a human being.
