Spare a change

Spare a change

Last day of work for 10-month employees working at the school.  Summer break begins. But, this is a big BUT, should the teachers’ strike continues for the summer, I will be still be unemployed. I work 12-months at the head office.  Needless to say, I have to respect the picket line and will not cross it.

I will be joining Abby panhandling instead.

Passers by are just begging to touch Abby. I’m pretty sure, it’s a lucrative job since no one can resist touching this soft little fur ball for a buck.

Bonus: tax free !

Between Mom and Dad

Between Mon and Dad

Between Mon and Dad is Abby.

Abby is a rabbit. In the eyes of these homeless couple coming from Toronto, Abby is their baby. Having Abby in their life brings out their humanity to extend their love to take care of an animal even though they are homeless.

I took this photo in between times on my way home carrying with me a Canon PowerShot SD1000.  It’s just an ordinary camera that helps me get out of my head and self.  Having a camera focuses my thoughts outward rather than inward. Photography is a beautiful technique to relieve mental illness.

Just for fun, I submitted it to National Geographic’s assignment “The Animals We Love” titled Mom, Dad and Baby Abby.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail stating “a National Geographic editor favorited your photo, Mom, Dad and Baby Abby, on Your Shot. Robin Schwartz added your photo Mom, Dad and Baby Abby as a favorite.”

Needless to say, I am elated.

Out of 14,953 submissions, this is one of her 1,401 favorites.  Thank you, Robin!
