Barking Dogs

“We age as the rest of the world watches but somehow we’re the last to know” – Death Without Company by Craig Johnson

This morning a dog barked. It woke me up.

I had not heard that sound in over a year.

It sounded wonderful. And that reaction surprised me.

Many years ago, when I was an active member of the civilized world, a barking dog waking me in the morning would have made me livid.

How curious it is to miss even the most trivial things.

Wonder what I’ll miss most about life once I step over to the other side?

Probably breathing.
