This week was a surprising one. We have wanted a pup for a while now, researching every breed on this green earth.
When I woke up on saturday morning I had no idea I would be getting a pup later that day.
When I saw her though, I knew… I ran to my Love, showing him a photo on my IPhone exclaiming I had found our dog. That was it.

Her name is Saṃsāra, a Sanskrit word that means “wandering” or “world”, with the connotation of cyclic, circuitous change.
It also refers to the theory of rebirth and “cyclicality of all life, matter, existence”, a fundamental assumption of all Indian religions.
(It also happens to be the most brilliant documentary ever, in case you have never seen it. )
So with our new pup in tow we played in thunder storms, cooked-out with friends, saw incredible full spectrum rainbows and went to the beach on the summer solstice.
*Which coincided with a full moon for the first time since 1967, it was pure magic!!!
We have had some blissful days chilling with each other and taking it slow, to which I am very grateful.
I’m finishing up articles, posting photos of Call of the Wild Soul, Ghost Ranch and day dreaming about Utah.
Florida isn’t so bad right now… Not bad at all.
P.S. We totally call her Sāra, which is pronounced like “sahr–uh”.
