A lab is recognizable by it's look. It is amazing though how underneath that fur and that bark are always a different dog with a different personality.
I read a book recently, it scared the living daylights out of me! I kept waiting for that happy ending and it never came. It only got worse. If you've read it, I'm sure you know the feeling, it's written by a contemporary author....and is about a school shooting and two childhood friends who grow up to be in different social circles in highschool. I have to admit I skipped about 200 pages to the end to finish it early. I'm glad I did because I would've really hated it more if I didn't. I didn't sleep well that night.
It was really about being different, being accepted, being who you are and not being judged by the outside cover. I admit I keep my blogs vague. I read somewhere that you should keep it straight and personal but I don't like blabbing my whole life in a blog. Too many nosy aquaintenances who think they are my friend.
So what's on my cover? I laugh thinking about it! I imagine some picture a cover with my life as it happened 6 months ago. Oh, six months ago was a different life and a wonderful turning point for us. Some people imagine a cover from 7 years ago...if you knew me then it was completely different.
If I could cover my book it would have a collage of pictures. Pictures that represent my past, my present, and what might be my future. You would see the faces of those who have loved me unconditionally; and you might see pictures of those who have taught me what or who I do not want to be. You might se places...as my life as always been recongizable by the places I've lived.
There would be things you could not see: my beliefs, my faith, my questions. You would not see the God that had brought me through those pictures...the thread that pull these all together to form a patchwork of art...good pieces, bad pieces...all in one piece.
What's interesting is the outside cover rarely shows the depth of the inside.....
