Maybe just one thought today. I have too much to accomplish on my one day off between treatment days. We all know the feeling.
Just had a walk with a couple from the neighborhood that I haven’t met before. It was lovely to have new Camino pilgrims: new ideas, new connections which causes new chemistry. They will be back I am sure, I hope.
But back to my one thought. Steve-O has been here with his current flat coat retriever who is a giant puppy. So that sez a lot, he’s big and powerful, playful and goofy, learning and making mistakes. That’s the dog, Rasmus, not Steve-O. Just wanted to clarify. Anyway, we were all out and around the property and Ras picked up one of my handmade by Phil garden stakes and was carrying it around because that what retrievers do. So he got bored at one point and started gnawing on it which is what puppies do. And I in my old self or past self would have been mad about that thinking that that was destructive but the first thought out of my mind was, “Oh look, he is celebrating his teeth!” See the difference.
The property is a giant growth and decay laboratory. Or it’s creation and destruction together. Or it’s celebrating and/or madness. We have to at some point start to embrace those two sides of the coin.
Ah, up up and away, celebrating loves, Felipe.
