"If I want to live my ability to be fully present and compassionate, my ability to be with it all—the joy and the sorrow—I must find the ways, the people, the places, the practices that support me in being all I truly am. I must cultivate ways of being that let me feel the warmth of encouragement against my heart when it is weary." 
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer 

It rained like crazy today and I swear I can see everything green up before my eyes. We had to get the dog the cone of shame and he does not like it. He is kind of miserable and we are doing our best to keep him away from the hotspot on his tail. But when he is insistent, we have not choice. I hope he forgives us. . .
