I took this photo during a walk with Cloud a couple days ago, because I loved how wolf-like his shadow looked. Such a contrast to my sweet and cuddly little pal, it was a glimpse of his inner wolf. I thought it was pretty cool.
I want to thank everybody again for your outpouring of support for the loss of my sweet Benny. Your comments and emails and kind words were so appreciated. I love the sense of community that I've found in blogging, hugs to you all. I miss him so much and the house feels so empty, but everyday it hurts a little less.
I don't really deal very well with death. I feel like I should handle it better, because I know absolutely that there is more to us than these bodies, and I know that Benny is not really gone. I just get so attached, and I think another part of it is that I feel things SO strongly. I think a lot of you artists can relate...it seems to be part of the creative personality. Of course the upside to that is also the ability to feel outrageous joy over even the littlest things, so I embrace it fully.
