Imploring Gaze


It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.
~
Albert Einstein


Ruby is continuously asking, a creature of curiosity. Her short stature means that she's always looking up, up, up, with those bright amber and grey eyes, those large inquisitive ears. She wonders what I'm doing, when will that include her, when will I pick up the caterpillar toy or say the magic four-letter word that begins with a 'W' or go upstairs so she can follow with her nose at my heels or sit on the purple sofa so she can nestle into her favorite spot in my lap. In a bigger way, she asks if I'm listening, if I love her more than yesterday, if she's taught me something important, if she brings me joy and the answer is always, always, always yes.

  2. Ruby's such a gorgeous dog--but I think the reason we all love her so much is the way you write about her. We can't help but feel the way you do. <3

    1. You're not the first person to say so...I often feel ineffective in conveying my love for her (which sounds ridiculous, I know, but it's A LOT) so I'm glad to know it translates.
