The life and timesWritten by hootenannie on September 28th, 2009
I am currently dog-sitting for a delightful dog named Shelby. She jumps the fence and eats band-aids out of the trash can, but I like her anyway. Yesterday morning, I took her to the dog park to let her run, and she immediately befriended a greyhound. She chased it around, but unfortunately, did not have the capacity to understand that she was chasing a GREYHOUND, so she never quite caught up.
Shelby has no idea that she’s just a little mutt.
Sometimes, I wish that I didn’t know my limitations – that I felt free to run as hard and fast as I can, giving no thought to my deficiencies or how I stack up against others – just completely at rest with who I am.
I should take a lesson from the little mongrel.

And now, tidbits worth mentioning but not really worth blogging about:
1) People, the weather. My stars. Last year, this didn’t happen until October 2 – but I am thrilled to report that this year, the change happened a few days early.
2) I have never seen anything so magical. Is this too good to be true? Because I am coveting like you would not believe.
3) I finished my EP. I’m listening to it right now on my headphones! This IS worth blogging about, just not yet. Stay tuned – I cannot wait for you to hear it.
4) And I know that you’ve been on the edge of your seat all weekend, so: no, I still have not barfed since I was 14. Don’t you worry your pretty little head for one tiny second. All better. Back at work. Just caused a coffee flood in the kitchen.
Everything is back to normal.
