It's hard for me to believe that Lucy and I have been together for nearly seven years. My little Boston Terrier is perfect, well almost perfect. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks and in this case I'm the old dog. It's high time to seriously work on walking with a leash. For the most part, in the past, she is the one who walks us. Pulling our arms out of their sockets as she weaves from side to side. Our walks for the most part are challenging and I long to be able to just go on casual strolls everyday. When we take her hiking, off the leash, she's great. She listens and there is no problem when called. Unfortunately when it comes to walking through the neighbor that's just not the case. After googling for help, I am finding that all I need to do is to learn how I need to become the alpha dog. It looks like most of the experts out there agree that the struggle we now face while walking my little powerhouse of pure muscle will become easy breezy if I consistently follow through. Eventually this will reassure her that I am in charge and she can simply relax and enjoy our walk. Feeling optimistic and ready to face the neighborhood.
Yesterday our friend invited Kurt and me out on his Carver to explore the San Francisco Bay. Though we've been fortunate to do this many times, each time there is something new to see. Yesterday we had the privilege watching easily one hundred pelicans fly overhead. That was an ahhhh moment. I wasn't able to get my camera in time but never the less it was awesome.
What I can share with you is this photo. If you are a commuter that travels back and forth from Marin County to
San Francisco, you have crossed the Golden Gate many times. This picture here is the less traveled route.
This was taken from underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. From an art prospective I can relate it to a Franz Kline structured painting with strong geometric shapes. The bottom shows the fog rolling over the Golden Gate Bridge
taken from land at the Presidio by the Discovery Museum.
Making the most of life day by day,
With the heart of a minimalist who paints complicated. I live contently in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. Welcome to my world.
