This is the view we get of Angus as we're pulling into the garage.
He knows we're coming home, he knows he can't get to us from there, but he looks anyway. At a certain point, he runs inside the patio to wait for us to let him inside, but looking at us through the crack by the back gate is part of his routine.
I'm feeling annoyingly introspective tonight and wondering what I can learn from my crack-looker.
What cracks do I peer through even though looking there won't do me any good?
What's worth anticipating, and what's not?
Does looking where I cannot go make any kind of positive sense?
I ran up against something today. I knew I was going to run up against it. It's a barrier that's been there for a while. I don't see much likelihood that it'll go away. I just figure that someday I'll attend a funeral or two and after that I won't even get to look through the crack by the gate.
So, until then, is looking through the crack better than nothing?
