A simple dog photo, yet so many things to see in a single photo of a frozen moment in life. Out of eyesight from the frame of the picture are more things...
Outside the window the dog has his attention focused on chickens walking by along with geese making noise while following the chickens. People with dreadlocks pass by the doors not looking towards the dog.
You must have your eyes open in life or you will miss your surroundings someday. That someday could be tomorrow.
When you visit places that are not to your liking or not what you would consider home, open your eyes wider and take it all in as this is what stories are made from.
Over the frame of the door is an old and worn photo of Johnny Cash standing next to Willie Nelson. To the right, a hand painted skull on a cloth reminiscent to a Grateful Dead poster.
Behind the dog is what was once a community kitchen. A dry erase board reads, “Welcome Family, Please Feed All the Birds, Sue Pig and Circle.”
To the immediate right of the door that the dog is looking out, a chalkboard filled with writing with words like, “Laugh, Love, and No Rules.”
On the wall above the chalkboard someone wrote in blue paint, “I LOVE YOU.”
A little further over is an old wooden cabinet with the tops of pots sitting on the top shelf, but no pots are in sight.
"There's beauty everywhere. There are amazing things happening everywhere, you just have to be able to open your eyes and witness it. Some days, that's harder than others."
