Wish You Were Here

Changing my habits little bit by little bit.  But it is hard not to miss his presence.  Took a walk at Crescent Beach over lunch hour and couldn’t help but reminice on our games of ‘follow me – balance on the log’.  As feelings of anxiety encroach, getting out and walking helps.  Thinking about selling the house; it feels empty and is too much of a reminder.  I bought this place for Basty; minimal stairs (which he could no longer navigate), and a yard he made his own.  Market timing isn’t the greatest, but it is what it is.

  1. Ever thought about taking another dog? There are so many dogs in shelters that nobody wants because they are too old or sick. They’re looking forward to having such a great friend like you! LG, Andy


    1. Yes, I am sure I will eventually. But I need to do so when I am ready, not to simply avoid the feeling of loss. Basty indeed WAS my family. I am starting to transition from the feeling of loss to a feeling of appreciation that he represented an important part of who I am. For now I will honor his memory; eventually will only smile when thoughts of him shine through.
