a hypothetical dog

i’m not sure what i should do. should i stay here in this city or go there in this other city?

what do you think i should do? your opinion is so important to me.

2 months ago i was completely sold on a new beginning, starting my life completely over yet again… a blank slate under a new sky…  because it’s been at least 4 years since my last start-over.

then, i started to look at where i am now with new eyes, and saw new possibilities, if i stay, i just have to be hyper-vigilant about breaking out of old habits, of which there are too many and which are too ingrained. And maybe it’s time to bring a dog into my life again. And new friends. And pruning out obsolete unhealthy relationships. you know, the toxic kind.

how is one, such as I,  supposed to forecast my path? that is why i am asking you.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.

    This is the first post of yours I have read. Not sure what city you are referring to. If it’s New York City, I may be of some help. If it’s not NYC, I’d be very interested to hear what your city is like.

    However, of this I am sure, a dog is an enormous responsibility. Dogs have beautiful and tender natures that deserve constant respect, care and attention. Having said that, a dog may be just what you need. Hoping to read more of your thoughts in the future.

      hi BetaDreaming. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. And I appreciate all you have to say about dogs. I’ve spent most of my life in their company… it feels awkward and unnatural to not have a dog in my life for the past 8 years. But some day soon, I will leave this dog-unfriendly building where i transiently reside.

      a dog would be the answer to everything. it sounds like you know of which i speak.

      my city of choice would be NYC, but alas, i am in the middle of the country and i have no interest to move any further west. NYC is calling me. I just need a way to get there.

        I can say from first hand experience that having a dog in the city (NYC at least) is a great way to connect with people on the street. Also, as a walker you might really appreciate having a dog – just make sure the dog is a walker like yourself.
