Journal Stories Life

14 April ~ 2020

I didn’t expect to be alone just as I was entering my fifties, but you can’t convince someone to love you, you have to let them go. I am proud how I handled that transition, the biggest of my life other than getting married. Instead of turning to drink, I stayed cold sober, and headed up into wilderness with my two border collies as often as I could. Us three spent countless nights under the stars, exploring new places, and growing our love for each other and the wild landscape. That set me right, and I am eternally grateful for the adventures I had with my two dogs.

Here is a slide show I put together of Ben and Maggie, who are watching from Dog Heaven now.

The song on the video is 'You Are The Reason', Violin Cover by Nanda Candra
