Sunday Pause (Paws): Poetry Read Aloud

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a poetry reading by me.

If you have been following me for a while you most likely know that I am always trying new things such as photography, editing, poetry and now the newest…making videos/reading aloud. With these new things I still always have animal advocacy in mind. I’m sure I have a lot to learn yet but through some online research about poetry I found that it is important to read it aloud. The following was taken from dummies.com.

The music of poetry — that is, its sounds and rhythms — isn’t just for the eye and the mind, it’s meant to be given voice.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Breaking Records

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and break some records…

(see image in blog post)

Not that kind of record, silly Cino
It’s about all of this endless snow
The most in February in history
It just won’t stop, it just won’t go

We’re already buried up to our chin
Mounds of white everywhere you turn
And yet a blizzard warning is out
It’s starting to cause some serious concern…

Full poem/post here.

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Buried In Snow

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the snow.

We have the whole day free
And oh the places we’ll go
Except we stepped out the door
And now we’re buried in snow

Sunday Pause (Paws): Are You Ready?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and watch some football (if you’re into it).

It’s Super Bowl Sunday so here is a poem for you.

Do you like the game?
Are you really into it?
Putting all things aside
And got a comfy spot to sit

Snacks & drinks are ready
Friends & family gathered near

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Those Gifts From God

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and rap…yes I said rap! (Or just listen to a rap).

I wrote a poem not long ago
My niece said it read like a rap
She sees a new career in my future
Ehhh…I probably wouldn’t get one clap 🙂

But I do have a video of someone who can rap that I wanted to share with you. If this doesn’t show that animals are gifts from God then I don’t know what does.

Teaching Empathy Saves Lives

I‘m sure most of you have heard about the abduction of the Wisconsin girl, Jayme. As we’re finding out more & more about it all, it has been told that the man who abducted her had killed a dog and had an obsession with road kill. You see my passion for animals isn’t just about my love for animals, it’s something we should all be paying attention to. Research has proven when children show signs of no empathy for animals and harm them, they most likely are just “experimenting/testing” and will move on to humans. This is why I am so passionate about educating children (and everyone) about how important it is to “pay attention” and teach empathy, kindness, & respect to animals. It could just save a life!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Fun With Pics

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let the artsy fartsy side come out.

Sometimes you just never know “what you want to be when you grow up.” I still really haven’t figured it out and I should be retiring in less than 20 years. A lot of my life I feel like I was just “surviving.” I always felt lost and unsure of myself. So I made some bad choices and went down the wrong path for a while. Basically I was just trying to pay the bills, fit in, and trying to be happy. But it was when I started paying attention to God that things started changing…I started changing. I’m still a “work in progress” and will be all of my days. No one is perfect. But I’m not just trying to survive anymore. I’m trying to “live”…really truly “live.” Because it isn’t just about what we “do” to pay the bills, it’s who we are and how we live.

I still haven’t figured out “what I want to be” to pay the bills but I have discovered that I enjoy being creative. My love for animals is nothing new.
