Thanks Asher. Because of early nurture or lack thereof, Sammy ranks higher than most dogs on a sentience dimension. Did you pick up that photo was with a fisheye lens?
Cheers, Mike.

I'd offer that in your three pictures, Mike, are paths of the master metaphor of "Life as a Journey"! The first is reflective and life seems to move back to the immediate present time. The second looks to the future while the last is reflective of past present and future!

Good interpretation, Asher, life as phases of a journey. Not limited, though, to a single cycle if the sentient creature is to avoid the despondency that Bruce Springsteen sang about. After a period of reflection in the third photo, this dog must find glory days again whether in dandelions to caress or cats to chase. Cheers, Mike.
