I was walking back home from work when I saw this fluffy,cuddly and adorable dog. It was the spitting image of my dear hound Pipa. I was quite tempted to just run and hug her, but I refrained my impetuous self when I saw the owner. It was this lovely English old lady, and before you ask, yes, she was the epitome of the Iconic British lady, the one you envision in your young days with the white mane of hair, the half-smile and the serene demeanor.
Well, I really miss my dog, even when she wakes me up at 7 AM on a supposedly lazy summer morning. I always cringe at people who say loving your pets is stupid, I do believe that most dogs are much more well-behaved, huggable and kissable than a lot of humans.
I made this video of Pipa and me while I was still in Atlanta, as the situation is similar, there is an ocean, albeit a smaller distance, separating us, I thought it was fitting for the moment, so here it is:

It has been a month and a half since I came back home. I was rereading my posts when I came across the one that I wrote before taking the flight that will bring me back to Spain. In those words I tried, albeit failing miserably, to convey the troubled state in which I found myself. The problem is that, I hope you pardon me for using such colloquial language, I still do not have a clue of what I should be doing with my life, not in the personal nor in the professional department. I feel a little bit, how to phrase it, disoriented and confused.
I was listening to ” Home” by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros ( you should hear it, both the lyrics and the melody are amazing and so fitting to the way I feel right now); and remembered, yes sometimes I do forget about it, that I should be happy because I am extremely blessed, I have a loving and caring family, friends, a healthy body and a clear mind. It is almost funny how much time I, how much we, spend worrying over trivial things such as our personal appearance, does that guy/girl think that I am too fat, too ugly, too stupid?; worrying over financial matters, do I have enough money to buy those marvellous shoes/ insert any other item you do not really need?
We spend so much time worrying over, speaking bluntly, stupid affairs; that we start forgetting how to enjoy a smile, a simple walk with your dog, the joy of the sun bathing your eyes, or as these wise lyrics sing, the simple joy of Laugh until we think we´ll die, barefoot on a summer night…
