a personal photo journal

heart to heart

snow play, and that day i discover Baker has a perfect heart on his nose . . .

“There’s a section toward the end of the book where I talk about how dogs love unconditionally and love you, flaws and all. We need to accept those (flaws) in our lives or it won’t work. Animals aren’t concerned with social class or status, they’re much more pure, heart to heart. A dog can teach us what matters most in life and what’s important in life if we open our heart and listen. Basic life lessons, loyalty and friendship, and guilelessness.”
-John Grogan, author of Marley and Me


that day birds filled the yard, and a hunger for life filled my being . . .

“To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe -- to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it,
organs that draw nourishment from it - - is a wonder beyond words.”
― Joanna Macy
