. DOGS are wonderful beings.
Each day it seems I learn something new from my canine companions. For instance, on our morning walk down our rural road today. Each time I breathed in the cool almost-Autumn air, there seemed to be a certain freshness. Each familiar boulder, newly covered with dew, looked different. I noticed each of my breath-clouds in the chilly air. Soon however, my thoughts overtook me and I ended up on a quite another road. Memories of yesterday, and plans for today floated around in my mind like so many bubbles on the pond I visited along the way. And the moment at hand simply disappeared. The DOGS (totally present on their walk) my four-legged companions were more "in-the-moment" By now, I was probably chastising myself. “I can't believe my computer crashed, I bet I messed it up by doing something I shouldn’t have done. . . I guess I just wasn't paying attention. . .." What’s that about not paying attention? Here, on one of the most beautiful days of the year, I’ve managed to spirit myself away to quite another place. What an odd treachery, this tendency to miss exquisite moments in life.
The DOGS seem to get that life happens right now.
Why is that? I have a theory
. . .to be where we are when we are where we are is just not the natural inclination of the human species! To be in ready right now to apprehend possibility as it sprints through our daily life is challenging! It's very much like keeping up with the intricacies of the practice of Real Estate. There is something about that dance, the pacing, the process of noticing and selecting involved that leads to a very focused awareness, even during difficult days.
