What is life?

Got the little devil on film finally. See his bandito mask?

Got the little devil on film finally. See his bandito mask? This is George…

I had a question answered this winter…

What is life?

There is a little bird that I have called George from the day he was born. George has stayed around Boza and I since he was born. He follows us as we walk and he seems to be our friend. George likes us and this winter George needed a few nights inside…

It got cold people! There were few nights of -35 to -40 and George somehow sneaked inside our outer room when I left the door open. The first time I did not realize it until the next morning, but the second and third time, I helped him get in. He would stay quiet and not make a fuss and he was a good guest. He just stayed the night as the wind blew, the snow fell and the temperature became deadly. Then he would leave the next morning and sing away as he thanked Boza and I for letting him stay the night…

That is life and that is what is important…

Boza tries to sit as close to me as possible as I work on the websites I have. I have made a spot for him on the couch near me and he can lay his head on my lap as I work…

That is life…

I found several sparrows after the heavy super freezes, they were dead… (Boza and I buried them together!)

That is life…

The sun came out from hiding and feels so warm on the face…

That is life…

The second time George stayed at our home, I put seeds from a few plants on the table. they were all gone in the morning…

That is life…

Cracking the surface of the water covered with ice, to even get water…

That is life…

A cat I found living nearby, under a village home, was given a big fat fish to eat. He said hello this morning and Boza chased him around awhile…

That is life…

Sveta is coming to see me on the 12th of February…

That is life…

Then today after feeling better from having the flu and being sick as a dog. I discovered life and it was all around me and we needed each other to survive and that is year around…

It became clear to me that life is simple and easy to explain. It is humans that make it hard and confusing…

That is life…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
