I was starting to write a post about the ongoing consequences of teen suicide, and the words just weren’t flowing, and they are important words. So instead, because I am feeling a little better, I give you Abby. The fluffiest, happiest, snuggliest most adorable T-shirt wearing dog to ever brighten a warm Saturday ultimate Frisbee game before our freezing temperatures hit. And if you have been feeling bad for over a month and need to feel better, get an Imaging Center to tell you that it will cost you $500 for their services. That’ll make you get well pretty darn quick.

Quote of the day: “Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” —  Milan Kundera

Daily gratitudes:
My bear of a coat
Feeling better
Chicken noodle soup
Helping
Knowing that there is a hammock and a sunset and MKL in my very near future, all in the same place
