): Something that made you sad today :(

Spotting little feathery blobs along the curb sides of the bridges I cross daily now...and imagining the horrible transition from freedom in motion to torn feathered wreckage caused by a misguided choice to fly through a bridge rather than over or under it.

Scenes from the side of the road Part II:

A solitary black Men's dress shoe, well used and in need of a shine, about 2 yards down the On Ramp from single white Ladies running shoe. I wondered if the mismatched pair had found, or yearned for, their Sole Mates in that unlikely spot.

Ode to a middle aged man with detached retinas who's lost his job and his wife and is miles from comfort.

And, the people in Syria.

I was alarmed at the commotion in the sun room. The terrible beasts are de-feathering an unlucky red-winged blackbird. First one I'd ever seen in person, and it's limp, not stiff yet, in my hands, minus its eyes. I am howling, and the cats run away from my sounds.

extensive renovations were finished in 2011
it can be restored, but... money for culture and arts is scarce (which makes me sad in a way)

Petco store had foster kittys today...I both love that they do that, and it distresses me too.
I love that they are letting pet shelters put great cats right out in front of pet lovers where they have a better than average chance of finding a home.
It distressed me to see/hear a sorrowful kitty crying because it's people let it go and it is lonely and wanting a better home than a shelter cage. She was a gorgeous short hair female, body pale almost white, with a head that was pale striped and lovely blue eyes. She was mewing constantly in the saddest way that it broke my heart. But I have an elderly kitty who would not appreciate an invasion, and I am feeding a feral who only visits late nights to feed, and I can't take on any more at this time.
I hope someone picks that lovely thing up and gives it a good home.
I had a boo hoo face all the way home.

Hoping that a lost captain is not added to the loss of that beautiful ship.
