Snowy CT Day

Took my two dogs for a long walk this morning.

Every time they go out on days like these, their level of excitement is as if they are experiencing snow for the very first time.

There's a Zen concept known as "Beginners Mind." Dogs seem to be in that state of mind all the time. Wouldn't it nice, as humans, to experience the world with Beginners Mind more often? Remember the feelings you had the very first time you fell in love? Confused, unsettled, overwhelmed, so terribly anxious, nauseous AND so completely happy, fulfilled, not aware of time or space, believing you won’t ever need anything but love, ever!

Even with all the inconveniences that pets bring with being pets, they so often force us to smile by saying things like “this world is just so cool, did you sniff that snow, no, this snow over here.”

Be well
