A reminder from Our Patron Saint of bigBANG, Agnes Martin:

There are so many people who don’t know what they want. And I think that, in this world, that’s the only thing you have to know — exactly what you want. … Doing what you were born to do … That’s the way to be happy.

  1. Your photos are always amazing, but that first one with the dogs is astoundingly beautiful :)

    I'm glad Dolly has a friend and I hope she isn't too lonely without Mac.

    Happy Summer adventuring to you guys!!

    1. Aw, thanks Caitlin. So sweet of you. Her new pal is adorable but alas, we're just dog-sitting him for two weeks. Otherwise Dolls seems to be happily adjusting to singledom, but we all miss our Mackerel every. day.

  4. Graham Greene is a wonderful author. Love the foster dog. Was thinking about Mac the other day, because my new dog looks like a Corgi from certain angles, and wondered how you were doing without him and if Dolly was sad. When one of my cats passed the last September, all the others where silent and still for more than a week. They went back to their usual naughty behavior shortly after, but it was sad to see them like that.

    Saint Patron of Big Bang is absolutely right. let's also talk about all those people that know what they want but don't have the guts to stick around enough to actually do it and be happy. Something i am finding often in more than one person: not. enough. passion. All they do is complain. Makes me vomit.
