A year in the life of our Miss Riley

The Art of Contentment

on April 8, 2015

I have to learn to be more like Riley. Several times today, I made the mistake thinking it was Thursday and that tomorrow was Friday, and wanted to bang my head against my desk. But look at Riley: so content. She doesn’t care what day it is. Of course, she’s a dog, and “Friday” doesn’t have the same meaning, but still, it’s a state of Zen for which I need to strive.

    I wish I could acquire that sense of relaxation and contentment. Jealous.

  2. Ha! I was similarly inspired to write about my fella’s special talent – sleeping Although, he’s not as old as Riley, so doesn’t have much of an excuse for laying around.
