Developing the novel A Canoer of Shorelines has been a special part of my life. Like the Wasaya setting, it will always be part of me. This will be a visual blog, a journey into times past but ever present, to the haunting beauty of the land, blessed by the presence of good dogs. Dogs, as I have written before, are a gift from the Creator to teach us how to become better people. They are spiritual beings, who inspire love of creation and a deep and abiding joy. To experience joy as a dog does is a gift that dog persons will understand.
to the three dogs who inspired Rachel's dogs in Canoer,
to my last Wasaya dog (my Lady of Wasaya),
and to the Golden one
who guards their memory with me.
