“I don’t know what it is, and I don’t want to know because it’s too precious for me. I don’t want to destroy it by knowing it. I want to be in wonder the whole time.”  -Marne van den Heever

One of the people I follow on Patreon, Green Revolution, recently published this story about Marne and his dog Tripod.  When speaking about his relationship and love for Tripod and about how much this has changed and enriched his life, Marne said what is quoted above (Minute 3:19). I found what he said to be beautiful and true of all love.  Love changes us profoundly, whether given, received or mutual.  Words don’t convey the wonder of love, no matter how hard we may try.  But, we’ll always keep trying, so we’ll always have songs and poetry and great stories, like this one.

    • Thank you, Suzanne. *hugs* I’m really happy you enjoyed it. They do choose you. My only dog was a rescue, Sputnik. As soon as I’m strong enough and once PT says okay, I’ve lined up a few days a week to be a dog-walker at our nearby no-kill shelter. The others in this household don’t wish to have a dog. So I get to go out and enjoy lots of them. =) I loved this story about Tripod and Marne. They do marathons together too from what I’ve read! ♥.

      • An inspiring story of love and healing, as are you dear Niki. I hope you will get the ok soon and enjoy every moment of such a sweet dog walking adventure! Although you cannot take them in I imagine that your walking them will make them more visible so that they may find a forever home. ❤️
