2008-01-12 (R) Reflections on a heavenly Uma  
The doggies were wonderful on this gorgeous, wet morning. Today's account will be brief, however, as one moment stood out in both Deb and my mind on both our walks and time spent with the dogs:

The dogs were so happy, romping along the trail as Deb, Nick and I discussed the crazy journey of life and the different paths we might take to get us through it. When we turned our heads back to the trail ahead we saw Uma standing up on the path with the sun shining right behind her. She wore such a patient, kindly expression on her face that seemed to say "It's okay. I'm here. I'll wait for you." Deb and I instantly became teary-eyed. She seemed so otherworldly - as if an angel had stepped into her skin and given us a glimpse of the path leading into Heaven. The moment was indescribable in many ways, but the symbol will stay with me forever. At the end of my days, if I arrive at a path and have an Uma (or a Vash or Joy) waiting for me, I would follow her with great gladness.

Deb tells me that upon seeing the picture, L summed it up perfectly: "This is what I imagine heaven would look like." Me too.

You know how sometimes, maybe often times, you'll "stumble" upon exactly the right image that reignites your spirit and helps you move forward? This is one of those times...thank you.
