Turning Into Mom.
This dog just walked right down into the water.
Like it had done it a hundred times before.
Like the most natural thing.
The Burger falls asleep almost right away when I put him down.
I take this as a sign that he is really very comforted by the thought of my presence or that I am just really boring to him and there is no reason to stay awake one more minute.
Having a family is a weird thing to try and do.
I just make it up as I go along though and I guess that is about the best anyone else ever did.
I just try to remain "present".
The future drives me crazy.
The past was nice, but that isn't now.
Now is always happening.
Even with a family.
And it is some work let me tell you.
Get them on a bike.
Show them a waterfall.
Cook them some foods.
Talk to them and pay attention to them.
Get them some cones.
But lately my brain has been guiding me like a laser.
I am paddling surely but wildly towards something in the near distance.
I feel like this is the homestretch for something that I don't know what it is.
So things are going great.
