This has been a bizarre day. Have you ever had a day when you could feel contentment even though you couldn’t say why and asked the next day how you had spent the previous one, you wouldn’t be able to pinpoint something specific? Well, for me, it’s been one of those days.
Rex was extremely tired after his ordeal yesterday – I blame myself for his wildness and his unsociable behavior, as he has rarely had the opportunity to see people in the house. He barely moved for hours and even had nightmares all the time and only at about nine this evening he ate and started to look a little lively.
During our morning stroll, which he accepted only after a lot of cajoling, as he wanted only to sleep, we met a small dog who wanted to play with him. He growled and showed his teeth and was downright mean trying to disabuse any notion of friendship. It didn’t work.
I really admired that little dog. It was a girl but a determined one. She was relentless. She left only when she finished sniffing and playing and didn’t care for one second that he was showing his unfriendliness. In the end, he was so confused that he gave in. However, immediately after she left, he asked to be brought back home to sleep.
All day long, whatever I’ve done, smells reminded me of the sea. I had the feeling that in my bathroom it smelt like in the hotel rooms at the seaside. Outside, the breeze seemed to remind me of the sound of the wind in the trees at Mamaia, a resort at the Black Sea, and the rain left a salty smell into the air.
At nine, I went with Rex in the ravine for a walk even though it was pitch dark outside. Even if I remember scenes from various movies involving dark alleys in park at night, I cannot say that I am afraid. It seems too quiet and peaceful to be dangerous. Plus, I have my personal bodyguard with me and Louis can attest that he is a very mean one.
I love to hear the sound of the creek at night. During the day, it is dimmed because of the noises of the street, but at night you can hear it and it always offers peace of mind, at least to me. The vastness of the forests and the sounds of the night make you feel like you’re alone in the universe – well beside Rex, who’s always there with me.
I don’t want to turn this blog into something close to contemplation and as my mood tonight is too close to that, I prefer to say good bye now. See you tomorrow! There's an anniversary tomorrow: exactly one month since I started this blog. Interesting!
