Today I don’t have to go to work-yay! Lynn & I get to stay home, working on our writings and lay like broccoli.
This day is about freedom; and it is a very precious thing-believe me I know. I bet you didn’t know that Lynn renamed me Willow because in the Language of Flowers it means ‘freedom’. I really had no freedom as a youngster; I like to run now and again but dog racing is not just running-we had no freedoms execpt out to the track for that couple minutes. When you’re contained all day- that racetrack was our few minutes of freedom so we almost looked forward to it and ran like the wind. But it is a shortlived high as the track is round and just brings you back to where you started.
We understand what your human Sigmund Frued said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result” Hmmm We racers kinda understand this quote, but we never gave up on our dreams that some time maybe the racetack would not be round that day.
So today I understand all the fanfare, and I celebrate too because there is nothing more important than being free to choose how you live, and how you play. I am free to play, explore, sniff, and lay like broccoli. Among other things I now have 5 beds, 3 baskets of stuffies, yummy organic food, salon appointments, couture clothes, my own blog, an email, and a teddy bear! Hip Hip Hooray for Independence!! I love it.
Watch for my Willow Says Facebook Page soon, until then email me Willow@goodolddaysflorist.com My own email-so very cool.
Happy 4th Always dreaming, Willow
