During a spell of feeling overwhelmed with life and love and all that looms in between, my surroundings intervened.
Wrinkly faced bulldog puppies appeared at a neighbor’s, and their little bellies, disproportionately massive paws and pipsqueak growls revived me. How can you not be happy when in the presence of snuggly innocence? Have you ever seen such a cute case of “resting bitch face?” I wish I could see that face every day!
Though those little squish faces made my face beam, my own Julep is still my best gal. Strolling with her on a summer evening transported me to my childhood. I had the feeling of a kid released from school.
The whole summer stretched before me, and I felt lighter with the possibility of picnics, new river views, blue skies, long strolls and the fruits of recent efforts to minimize all the clutter in my life. I felt inspired by the textures, patterns and details waiting to catch my eye. The summer city reminded me that everything is and will be just fine.
