Mokie

My sweetest miracle. He saw me through the toughest of times until he died of leukemia in February of this year, a week after I moved to California. I'd like to think he made it long enough to ensure my safe passage... like a guardian angel of sorts.
Typically, I don't subscribe to such magical thinking, but it's too hard not to with an animal like Mokie.
He was truly remarkable.
I was so lucky to have him and his brother in my life...
and if this sounds silly or foolish and anyone feels the irresistible need to say so in an offensive or disrespectful way - I will hunt you down and hurt you badly. :)
Out of love, of coarse. because I am sweet. :)

“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”
