February 2020: My time at a dog shelter in Northern Sicily
Sicily, February 10, 2020
The mystic secret mind of dogs glows in the morning enclosure. I enter a zen-like state as I go around cleaning the grounds. I can sense every dog without looking at them. We are all threaded together in a deep silence. This connection to animals has followed me since childhood, and super-ceded my relationships to my own kind. The language they speak is like waves of light through the body. The body is porous and the light drifts through. There are no walls.
