Back in Sydney. Didn’t post anything the last two months. I was busy doing other stuff. But I’m back🙃

According to all of social media, it's national puppy day and while I have rather the opposite of a puppy, it seems apropos to post this as it's been on my mind a lot lately.
This absolutely perfect little nugget is Sushi. Sushi is somewhere in the range of 12 years old and she's been with me since she was 5 months old. She has been the most incredible, patient, and loyal companion I could ever imagine. Most of the time I know I take it for granted what a wonderful little being I've been paired with.
Lately, I've begun to catch on to her signs of aging, I think they've crept up on both of us, and I find myself thinking more and more about how I will feel at the end. I can't imagine anything other than devastation. I see old pictures of her and notice that she is not the same pup that she used to be.
But, she is though, right? I mean, she still crosses her paws when she sleeps or lays down like the proper lady she is. She still seems to have boundless energy for hikes and our adventures, she has not yet ceased to incessantly lick my feet when they are near, no matter their scent, and she still gives me her big, toothy smile whenever I walk near.
So that is what she teaches me. I get some finite amount of time with this incredibly precious little pupper and I just need to remember to appreciate that and not squander it by worrying that I don't have enough. It's always the lesson, huh? The journey not the destination. And in the continually perfect way that only a dog would be able, she is the living embodiment of that lesson.
And I am the living embodiment of the imperfection that will probably always worry just a little bit about the destination.♥️
Devils Golf Course in Death Valley, Cali is in a world of its own. You think stepping on LEGO barefoot hurts. Imagine being stuck in the middle of this place barefoot. I say imagine, because I could only bare to stand in that heat for a total of 5 minutes before I had to retreat to the luxury of air-conditioning. And that was wearing shoes across this arid, rocky place. Incredible? Yes. Livable? No thanks.
One more gorgeous view from the battlements of the Alhambra. Granada and the Albayzin spread out below on a sunny day|
Granada is definitely my favourite city in Spain. I was mesmerized by the Moorish architecture and the old city charm and have to go back. So many great photos from here to share!
