Swim Worthy

It appears that the dog can swim...and swim...and swim. I am so pleased that PG has taken to the water so enthusiastically. She has even crossed that fine line of just going in and swimming around just for the sheer joy of it. I was finally able to get these shots of her down at the lake a few days ago. It's fun having a water dog. The only problem now is with the kayaks. She assumes the kayaks are hers and insists on going on any and all excursions on the water. If only she could be reasoned with or bribed or distracted, but that does not seem possible at this time. So for now, we indulge her and let her have her way.

Water Therapy

Pardon my angst. I'm back from my quick trip down 'town' so to speak and in the saddle again. Recovery has to be the dunks in the lake that I have taken this past week. The first time was after a long hike that ended lakeside and PG went right in for a cool down. I was so hot that I couldn't resist either. I stripped down to my skivvies and followed her in -- she was so surprised and pleased. I swear, she was laughing while swimming right along beside me. The lake was very cool, well, actually freezing and I couldn't stay in long. It did indeed feel good and the hot sun afterward felt divine. I love lake swimming... especially in this clear, clean, Canadian lake. Those rocks by the way, are shot through the water. Yup.

I have been set spiraling. It's just an observation, just a curious case of introspection and dissection and, yes, a whole lot of rumination . What is it that can cause this feeling of just not being so together anymore? So...complicated and so...pathetic that I am, here I go trying to figure it out. Perhaps it is my FANTASY life thinking that it is my REALITY life...God don't you hate when that happens? You are going along , la-di-da-ing, when something 'real' sucker punches you. I know I am not being clear here but I am just a jumbled up mess of contradictions and nonsense today. I feel like I am in bits and pieces, scattered here and there. Broken things that need fixing. Is there anyone out there?
