    The first year or so with any dog is a steep relational curve - you are each finding out who the other is, and who you will be together. I knew at that moment, when we locked eyes and she started taking me forward, that we had become a team and that she knew it, too, and would go anywhere I asked.
    In the ensuing decade, she had been integral to the most soul-stretching, joyful years of my life, and witness to some of the saddest.
    Old dogs can be a regal sight. Their exuberance settles over the years into a seasoned nobility, their routines become as locked into yours as the quietest and kindest of marriages.

    I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder, creatures. Sometimes I think that the pain is what yields the solution. Grief and memory create their own narrative: This is the shining truth at the heart of Freud and Neruda and every war story ever told.
    the map of one's life is made up of luck and circumstance and determination.
    The old navajo weavers used to insert an unmatched thread into each of their rugs, a contrasting color that runs to the outside edge. You can spot an authentic rug by this intentional flaw, which is called spirit line, meant to release the energy trapped inside the rug and pave the way for the next creation.
    Every story in life worth holding on to has to have a spirit line. You can call this hope or tomorrow or the "and then" of narrative itself, but without it - without that bright, dissonant fact of the unknown, of what we cannot control - consciousness and everything with it would tumble inward and implode. the universe insists that what is fixed is also finite.
