YOU'RE A MASCOT RIDING ON THE WIND HORSES

(...)  THIS IS YOUR LUCKY YEAR.

MY STAR

ALL I KNOW OF A CERTAIN STAR . . .

WHAT MATTER TO ME IF THEIR STAR IS A WORLD?

MINE HAS OPENED ITS SOUL TO ME; THEREFORE I LOVE IT.

- ROBERT BROWNING -

 

O wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful!

and yet again wonderful...

William Shakespeare   -  As You Like it  - 

DIVERSITY A DELICATE DANCE     A TENUOUS STANCE

Like but oh, how different . . .

- William Wordsworth -

LIKE SNOWFLAKES, 

NO TWO SALUKIS ARE ALIKE..

" a universe of sky and snow "

-  J. G. Whittier:  Snowbound -

DIVERSITY

A WORD FITLY SPOKEN 

IS LIKE APPLES OF GOLD IN PICTURES OF SILVER

- THE BIBLE -

WONDER IS AN EXCITING MYSTERIOUS REGION

THAT ONCE AGAIN HAS GIVEN US A SURPRISE.

LIKE A BLACK HOLE 

IT CANNOT BE OBSERVED DIRECTLY

LIKE TURBULENCE AND  HIGH-ENERGY

ITS GRAVITY CREATED INFERS ITS PRESENCE.

Couched in his kennel, like a log

With paws of silver, sleep THE DOG... 

- Walter de la Mare -

(...) And in the WEST a PLANET

Swinging below a STAR -

LOOK for a lovely thing and you will find it,

IT is not far -

IT NEVER WILL BE FAR.

- Sara Teasdale  -

" A total absence of imagination renders life impossible."  - Colette

. . . and  WONDERS NEVER CEASE

The WONDERS were not chosen for their grandeur,

but for the vision and purpose that inspired THEM.

Celia King:  - The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World -

 

A Horse is a Horse, of course...  

But a Saluki is a GIFT that stands in the shadow of its Creator.

CH KAROB ARTEMIS AT EPHESUS - BRED TO SEE FAME THAT HONORS HER HERITAGE

CH  KAROB MAUSOLEUM OF HALICARNASUS - BRED TO TASTE THE  DELIGHTS OF "SALUKINESS"

CH STATUE ZEUS OF OLYMPIA - BRED TO FEEL THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SPREADING JOY

CH KAROB COLOSSUS OF RHODES - BRED TO TOUCH THE HEARTS OF HIS PEOPLE

KAROB GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA - BRED TO HEAR THE VOICE OF A FREE SPIRIT 

KAROB PHAROS OF ALEXANDRIA  - BRED TO LAUGH AND DANCE THE SALUKI ARTS 

KAROB GARDENS OF BABYLON - bred TO LOVE AND BE LOVED AND CHERISHED

Tell me WHERE is Fancy bred,

Or in the HEART or in the HEAD?

How begot, how nourished?

REPLY, reply. . . 

 - William Shakespeare -

"THE FUNDAMENTAL THINGS APPLY AS TIME GOES BY..."

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?

Some things don't get better,

They're touched with genius from the beginning.

BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART 

THAT SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.

Begin to WONDER...

 

THE CENTIPEDE WAS HAPPY QUITE

UNTIL THE TOAD IN FUN

SAID, 'PRAY WHAT LEG COMES AFTER WHICH?'

AND WORKED HER MIND IN SUCH A PITCH,

SHE LAY DISTRACTED IN THE DITCH CONSIDERING HOW TO RUN.

- Mr. Edmund Crastie -  1874 

  

Gesture and special composition are never devoid 

OF DRAMATIC MEANING...
