Best Friend

Finding the answer to the meaning of our lives is an age-old quest.  The Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell is just such an account.  Every day we come to this place of wonder. Oftentimes we think we have failed, or we believe in our magnificence.  The truth is we find our way for a while, we stumble, we brush ourselves off and get back to our journey again and again.  Over thinking can be a chronic problem for many of us, and I place myself at the top of that list!  Yoga and meditation have provided a great outlet to quiet my monkey mind, but it still exists and requires daily tending.  Today while taking my beautiful best friend for his grooming appointment I happened to turn around and catch this image of him. He was grounded in the simple joy of the moment.  He was free.  Free of the pain that I imagine racks his 13-year-old body, and feeling the wind in his face and shining his light out into the world.  I love all that he is in his pure loving form. Thank you sweet Chesky for reminding me once again to come into the moment and exist in pure love, joy, and simplicity.  You are my best friend.
