The theme for this week’s #52Snapshots of Life photo challenge is “passion“.
What brings this look of passion to Cricket’s eyes?
Yes, of course…..
This week’s word immediately brought to mind two things: my own passion for my pets and my blog, and Cricket’s passion for playing ball. The latter seemed easier to illustrate in a photograph! It also got me thinking about both of us….I sometimes feel I’m a bit obsessed with my blog, and I often think that Cricket is obsessed with her balls! It turns out the fine line between passion and obsession is a philosophical question for the ages….google it and you’ll see!
Last week when things came up with the house, I ended up missing a day that I usually post on. That day seemed all screwed up and I was really out of sorts about it. I wonder if Cricket feels the same way on a rainy day when we don’t get to play ball? (Luckily we haven’t had a lot of those lately.)
In truth all three dogs love to play ball, but Sheba and Luke don’t focus on it quite as intensely as Cricket does. When Cricket is relentlessly pursuing the ball and returning it to me, or running along with her nose on the ground tracking where it’s been, Luke and Sheba might be chewing on sticks, digging holes, or just chasing each other.
Maybe this photo answers the question….passion or obsession? What do you think?
