I have a new instructor, a minder and reminder. She is my pup, Aki! She has come to tutor me in “The Moment”. Her mantras are “Celebrate the Present” and “Be Here Now” She teaches by example. She is, as Pablo Neruda once wrote about his own dog-
Joyful, joyful, joyful,
as only dogs know how to be happy
with all the autonomy
of their shameless spirit.
The image I have posted above named "Dog Walking Waltz" was made several years ago to celebrate the spirit of another wonderful pup who taught me how to dance every day.
"Dog Walkin Waltz" is a Monotype Print, with gold leaf. 26” x 20”.
