Quote Of The Day 10/22/09

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

– St. Augustine

Follow That Trail

As I began to map out our journey to find Brown Dog, Mandy and Gracie got in a very intense argument about who would get to carry the compass. Luckily, the low quality doggie cam caught it all! As seen below. Not sure who won, you tell me. I do think this is going to be a long journey.

Quote Of The Day 10/20/09

"Perhaps other souls than human are sometimes born into the world, and clothed in flesh."

Sheridan Le Fanu (Uncle Silas, 1864 )

A View From Within

After being separated from Mandy, my days have been somewhat lonely. There is nothing to cast upon, and the other shadows are not so friendly. One shadow in particular, we all call "The Tank", never lets the rest of us peek through a small tear in the tip of the bag. He is not too fond of us moving around either. Wait a minute, I think I can see a little light, is that the sky, or is that...

Only because Benny "The Tank's" shadow allows it!

Quote Of The Day 10/18/09

“Troubles are usually brooms and shovels that smooth the road to the good man's fortune; and many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away hunger.”

-St. Basil quote

Thoughts Of A Lost Friend

Before my associates and I embark on our great journey, I must gather my thoughts, and strengthen my will. So I sit upon this stump, and think of my lost shadow. The fear and anguish he must feel, the despair that rules his very existence. I don't expect most humans will understand, but your shadow is always there, he is always loyal, and most importantly he is you. When you see your shadow, you know there is light, in its absence darkness tends to take many forms. So I must continue and think upon this stump, hoping that I will soon have the reassurance of my dark friend.
