I have often wondered (aloud and when alone) what the things I need most are. I know that one of the things I need is my family. They bring great peace to my life. They are the reason I travel and do the various jobs I have done over the years. They are a joy.
For me there is a love of dogs that really makes me want to be around dogs. I simply love dogs. They bring me great peace and restfulness. Yes I would prefer being around my dogs (who are part of a my “family”) but the dogs living with friends also bring a joy to me.
The last is friends. I love having a chance to be around my friends who follow this journey through life.
Like a great red wine that ages with time, these are the things I need.
