The Flood of 2016 has taught me a few things. One of those is that cats/dogs can make a point to play this game of chase, hiss, slap, run some more, tag you're it, and hiss again. When they are tired, the game is over and they go back to their spots of comfort. From a human's perspective it would appear that the cat cannot stand the dog and the dog continues to harass her no matter how annoyed she is. Honestly, it's just a game. They seem to enjoy it and we get a laugh for the night. It was even observed that the cat seems to be less stressed when the humans try to get a rise out of her too.
So you see, the Flood of 2016 may have put us all in situations which we are unfamiliar with, but you can be a calmer state (even with more stress) if you allow yourself to play a game, get it out of your system, and go about your business. The problem with us humans is that we tend to let the game keep playing, don't hiss and take control, and we don't allow our own beings to find comfort that we need in a time of unfamiliarity.
Play the game of cat/dog if you need or just laugh at the cat/dog if playing isn't your thing these days, but whatever you do take a break and enjoy the uncomfortable of your present.

The images represent randomness that occurred in my life. The beautiful butterfly landed on the limestone drive during my daily walk and I waited until it opened it's wings to see it in all of it's beauty. The sun images were discovered when I took 1 of our 2 dogs, Jane Alexander, out and looked to the left and realized that just around the back of our home the sun was so bright that I couldn't even look too long. It was amazingly bright and put me in a state of awee.
Both of these are random landings in my life and that's how I feel about a lot of things. The reminders of when we worry and how we never know when a random landing is set to arrive. What if our worry takes up so much space that we miss the random landing? What if we miss out telling someone that we love them? What if we miss the random landing of another person in our life because we are so caught up in the hustle and bustle of each day? What if we miss the random landing of our own being and miss the intentions that are supposed to be taking? What if we miss the random landing of our own health and positive energy because we never stop long enough to take care of ourselves?
Today, I ask you to share a random landing moment in your own life. Just comment below with a picture or a word or two to share the random landing that you noticed because you sat still long enough to hear it, see it, and do something about it.
