Today is always a sad one for me …

Somehow, my dog Norma makes things better.

Weird, but true.

    1. all the time, kevin. it’s the desire to be seen and heard. which can probably be summed up as the desire to want to matter. of course, we don’t matter. but we want to. myself included.

      you’re no different. you’re here–only anonymously. which is its own session on the couch …

  1. Someone said, “He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

  2. It’s easy to explain why I post anonymously. I like giving my opinion but don’t feel the need to ‘matter’ to the point of others knowing more than my opinion.

    I matter to my family and friends. At least that’s what I like to think for while I’m on this planet.

    Besides, it doesn’t take much effort to do what I do. I would think it takes much more energy to post a picture and witty lines on a facebook page, set up a youtube account to express one’s feelings…or how to balance the dog and your grill in the cell phone frame while the car is moving.

    To each their own I guess.

    1. ha, kevin, can’t argue those.

      to be 100% honest, all of this serves, to a certain degree, as a vehicle for the ultimate goal: having a sustained career writing books. these days, a writer has to maintain a profile. a profile comes with crap like blogs, etc. do i enjoy it? i do—a LOT. is there ego behind it? surely. but, bottom line, it’s about being able to do what i love for a career.
