Iguana and Bulldog Share a Nap & BOTB Break

How adorable is this??!


Iguanas are cool. Other than seeing them in aquariums, I’ve only been around an iguana once. But it was such a cool experience. He seemed so affectionate. I was lightly stroking his head and face and after a few strokes, he tilted his head and closed his eyes, like he was really digging it. It was so sweet! It made me consider getting one. This video has reignited that desire…

On another note, I’m going to be taking a break from Battle of the Bands and from blogging in general for just a short while. This video made me realize that I need to take a little time for myself and get some rest. I’m still considering whether or not I’m going to participate in the Blogging A-Z Challenge in April. I’ll keep you all posted.

And now, I’m signing off for a much needed nap…



My Aquarium Visit: Who Knew It Would Spark a Poem

I’m certainly no poet but this came to me as I was looking at the photos I took yesterday while visiting the new Austin Aquarium (which you can see in the slideshow below). I wrote this poem in honor of all the animals held in public aquariums:

Gliding through waters unfamiliar,

The ripples not like those in the sea.

How I yearn to be free from captivity.

The aquarium apparently my new home

How I despise these rocks I now roam.


I see them looking through the glass

Smiling, admiring, then walking away,

One after the other, day after day.

I have to rely on the Angels who see

To watch over us, only they hold the key.

Unless you are here to set me free?
