Chaos has a place. In all our travels, did we recognize the possibility that mayhem teaches something? So I sit in my adirondack chair, contemplating the possibility. I consider that I missed something in the reality called my life — that maybe chaos has a place and for good reason.
Merlin creates chaos in our life. He runs to and fro without regard to the in-between. He is a god-send, actually. A reminder that we humans need to chill and perhaps consider a different reality – one involving humor, forgiveness (a basset in motion often requires such), maybe even space to honor the contrary aspects of our demand for perfection.
