Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Auguste Rodin

It’s wonderful to be among people who love dogs.

As a dog owner who writes from the comfort of my home in rural Northern California, I spend my days in the company of dogs. They like that aspect. I do too except when they launch into a raucous chorus because a squirrel invaded their front yard. Then I wonder what it’s like to write in silence.

Keeping company with dogs and my human impulse to want to figure things out, inspire the essays and articles on this blog.
