Training Cody...but not. Helping Ron get well...but letting him be in charge. Tiptoeing through the minefields of my own inadequacies and the tendency to concentrate on the splinter in someone else's eye. Needing to speak up AND be quiet.

I love/hate taking photos. When I can't take a walk in a pretty place without a camera I wonder if I am being robbed of the actual experience by moving myself behind the lense. Instead of laughing WITH Gweny I want to catch her laughter. Instead of smelling and enjoying the flower as I walk by - I stop and try to get the perfect angle for a photo.

On the other hand, isn't the photo experience evidence of my love and respect for something beautiful and artistic? Ambivalent. That's OK.

Today is a big day. We, (mostly Ron) get trained to be Cody's pack leader and continue the service training Cody has been learning since May. Exciting, scary, challenging. Ron's next big step to a dream come true.
