I walked into the lounge and there he was, asleep in the warm and yellow light.
The thing about Seth I have always liked the most is that he has this ability to get the love he needs, without fuss or demand.
There's a silence about him. He comes to you quietly, without whining or snuffling, presents his body or head to you for the pats he needs. And you do pat him, because he's there and he's lovely and why wouldn't you? I've got a lot to learn from Seth.
When I say Seth needs patting, I do think it is a need in him rather than a want. My last dog could take or leave the physical affection. Seth can take or leave food for the most part, but touch he cannot do without.
Hmmm, they says dogs are like their owners... and yup I'll admit I'm the same as him. Too long without physical contact and I can feel my body reaching outward of its own accord, increasingly needy. Thank christ my friends and family are good huggers.
I have a sister Jack. I don't see her as much as I'd like; she lives in a different city. But when I do all I want is be sitting beside her with my head on her shoulder. Just being in her company gives me great comfort, and my body gets all calm and chill. Love you Jack.
When I was kid, there was this tv show called Contact. Remember the theme song?
Contact is the secret
is the moment
when everything happens.
Contact is the answer
is the reason
that everything happens
I am so with that vibe.
