    For some strange reason my dreams these days always involve parking lots ? ? ?
    I was listening to a rendition of “Don’t it make you want to go home now?”. The late John Denver and Glen Campbel duetl and realized there was no place on this planet that feels like home

    I read your blog, stopped what I was doing, and prayed for you. The Lord be with you, Michael. I will continue to pray for you as the Lord leads me.

    Thanks, Donner…I suspect that I’m not the only one having issues these days…

    Feeling this all the way.

    I watch our second dog have dreams which I can only conclude are about ripping the squirrel in half that torments her daily. Our dogs love people, and want to play with other dogs. But our dogs are huge. Like massive dogs, both in the grown human weight class. So when little dogs encounter them face to face, the tail tucks and the pee flows freely. But they are lovers, not fighters. The neighborhood has grown to know them affectionately, and they know them by name. They escaped the back yard yesterday, and the neighbors coaxed them back into the yard and resecured the gate. I watch our dogs and cats and wish so badly that my life was as simple as theirs.

    I read a book decades ago called “Cat And Dog Theology”. The dog says, “You pet me, you feed me, you love me… you must be god!” The cat says, “You pet me, you feed me, you love me… I Must Be God!!!”

    They are all treated the same. They all decide they have their own rights and privileges. The dogs experience more stress trying to get to the humans they want to love to death, while the cats saunter about knowing they are gods, descendants of gods, and they know they rule us, and even the dogs.

    I feel like if I had my choice and reincarnation were a reality, I would come back as a dog. They are so damned happy about everything… except the squirrel.

    Cats inspire me…no matter the situation they maintain their dignity and they are selective in who they appreciate.
    If reincarnation were a reality I was already a cat…

    Haha, we all knew that!

    The fun thing is, I am much more of a cat person than a dog person, but I know I am a dog at heart.
