Full Steam Ahead

A fierce predator races through deep snow toward its hapless quarry, white fangs flashing in the spring sunlight, Boulder Open Space, Colorado.


In truth, this is our ridiculous mutt Rafferty, ploughing full-speed through nearly 18" of snow that fell over the past day and a half. Like many dogs, he is almost irrationally excited when an opportunity arises to head out the front door. I suspect moments of pure unfettered motion like this are at least partly responsible. Not my usual fare, but I post this as a simple, canine reminder to embrace life for the full-throated thrill that it is, never knowing what may come next.
