Here's the puppy (who turned four this year) who makes me happy and brings up my spirits. He is the sweetest, happiest, most fun companion. His job is not just my spirits, but the entire family's. And he is good at his job. He's had a lot of practice at it these last 18 months, and is sometimes responsible for keeping us grounded through the unbloggable.
click on any photo to see it enlarged...For a little extra boost, the Border Collie and I take hikes with views. You folks have seen this one before.
I'm sharing my favorite rest stop with you. Half-way up (OK, actually about every 20 stairs or so), I stop and rest. My favorite cactus and the sunrise.
There are extra visual treats, like watching these giant birds descend from the hill and fly up and out to the ocean for their day. If you look close behind the cloud, you can see the moon.
When we get to the top, this is our view. Imagine doing your morning sunrise yoga to this. On a clear day, you can see Molokai and Maui on the horizon.
There's my puppy again, sniffing the wind while I sit down to take some deep breaths. I put on my I-shuffle and listen to this while I set my mind on the horizon...........
