"She Brightens My Day," c.2016,...a capture of my dog Kali("the beautiful one") giving me a kiss on her 13th birthday. Just like the brightness of the sun in this selfie, her loving kiss gives me the joy which can often fade away in life's troubles. Though she can barely hear us any more she still shows us love quite often, which truly brightens this old man's day. <3

Artist Reply: Thank you so much for seeing the beauty in this capture, especially since Kali's name means, "the beautiful one." Ever since we rescued her through the Indiana Sheltie Rescue Organization, she has been a wonderful pet, a young sister to our youngest daughter and a light in our life. She always reminds me of the gracious love of our Creator for all of us beings on earth. My best to you and yours!! Mark Kokopelli

Artist Reply: Thanks Joanie! Kali really does brighten my day and in this capture, the sun was at a perfect place in the sky to allow me to get this pic just right!! We never know how long we have these precious babies in our care, so now that Kali is at least 13 years old, we have to help her with stairs, seeing outside in the dark and hand signals,...but she loves all of us so much, we can always get kisses! Thanks you for your compliment Joanie, it really means a lot to me hearing your words ring in my ears, especially since your are a colleague!! My best , Mark
