‘It’s all a matter of balance, or even perspective,’ he said.
‘Everyone looks but sees things differently. It’s what makes us unique.’
Sandy thought of the words her grandpappy said to her whenever she was trying to fathom out a problem. On one occasion, he even had her standing on her head to look at the open fields and said to imagine skies were green and grass was blue. She’s countered that water would therefore run uphill and you could practically walk on the stepping stone clouds.
‘Exactly!’ he’d beamed, righting himself because he never asked her to do anything he couldn’t do himself. Nothing was impossible in his book, as there was always another way to try.
Oh how she missed him, and knew she wasn’t the only one as many had come to him for advice or just to use him as a sounding board. He never judged, just listened, and sometimes that was all that was needed.
They’d had a statue commissioned in his honour and his expressions had been captured perfectly.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
