Ellie and I took a long walk on the morning of New Year’s Eve and stopped by the dragon at Irvington School on the way back. She rarely ventures that far anymore, though how much is from advancing age and how much from the warmer weather, I can’t say.
Never walk without your beloved dog when the snow falls heavy and deep, for if you wake a hidden dragon she’ll lull it back to sleep.
When a moon hits your eye and Ellie’s by your side,
St. George may have killed a dragon, but Ellie charmed one. As Obi-wan teaches, “You can’t win. But there are alternatives to fighting.”
