Tis been a year now since Irish and I gained our independence. I’ve taken her to all my old haunts. All the meadows and forest trails I once knew intimately, and matured parks I scarcely recognize now.
Our adventures have meandered, as we stopped to admire and take in that which surrounds us, each in our own way.
We are becoming a team, her and I, as we venture forth…down paths I have known, and some we have discovered together.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
