My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Culmination of a Great Day

Our day started bright and early for us arriving at theBYU studio  for a radio interview at 7:20 am. This was a new experience, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sharing along with a puppy raiser the journey of a guide dog. I meant to take my camera so Steve could take a quick picture with us in radio interview mode.


Steve and I enjoyed a little breakfast at one of our favorites - Cornerstone Bakery. I then enjoyed meeting two dear friends since childhood for lunch and chatting. I meant to have my camera to get a picture of us enjoying time together.


Back to the office for some appointments.   Followed by returning home to be greeted by our cute little visitor for the night.
Some of my colleagues attended a mindful seminar today.  It didn't fit in the schedule for me to join them.  It sounded great, however, and had me reflecting on one of my mindful quotes:  

It is just simple attention that allows us to truly listen to the sound of the bird, to see* deeply the glory of an autumn leaf, to touch the heart of another and be touched.  Feldman and Kornfield

(*I would add -- have you touched and felt an autumn leaf)

Wendy - our little visitor was Dahlia. Natalie and Adam flew to San Diego a day before us for her graduation so we got to tend and then we came home a day earlier than them so now we have her back with us :).
