This is a brief fable about a playful dog who thinks he’s pretty special. He reminds me of our cat, Ozzie. The moral of this story goes right over the head of far too many celebrities.
Here’s a delightful poem by Ogden Nash on the pleasures and responsibilities of being a grandfather.
Each day we hear of another aging celebrity, friend or family member passing away. Too soon, we tell ourselves, even if the party in question was 93. But nothing is more difficult to reconcile than the death of a child. This lovely poem is by 19th Century author, editor and poet, Nathaniel Parker Willis.
