  1. True. Like people some dogs are just bastards. But I am quite partial to my dog (and I say this as someone who was never a “dog person” – whatever that means. I suppose it means I always had cats and respected their independence and attitude.) But Simon lives entirely in the present. Period. And his only concern is LOVE (and food, but that stands to reason). Giving and receiving love. And just being. I have a lot to learn from him…

  2. (mind you – it’s not like Simon receives any bills addressed to him (that I know of), or has to wonder how the food gets to him… But still!)
