March of Time

This is my PearaKet in tall he died.

Drawing and text just had to be seen by more people. It was found here to-day by a loyal reader, thank you. It will be gone tomorrow though!

My first 'loved one' to die was Joe, a parakeet, and I would not have been able to spell that either! A child's first encounter with impermanence is often through the death of a close critter. Perhaps this is one of the good reasons for children to have 'pets' to take care of? I love how this child can mix up time and come up with a good image in the present past...

Finally here is a link to a thoughtful posting on the inevitable march of time.
