Favorite Quote:
"Where troubles melt like lemon drops, high above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me" ~Dorothy Gale


Sometimes I find what I want 

in the eyes of a dog. 

Staring and Soulful, 

more caring, more woeful. 

Secretive and yet so simple, 

Dogs are a perfect pinnacle

of something more successful. 

more humble. 

more truthful 

than anything I could wish to be. 

If only, if only, 

my dog was me.
