After much contemplation, chewing on bones and other digestible matters of contention. Not to mention, storms, fires, smokey haze, computer and human meltdown Frankie has decided whilst establishing his editorial control that he can best serve his readership by putting out a weekly magazine style email with a more varied, informative content and an expansive view of his universe and how he sees/sniffs/eats it. In the meanwhile here are a few captures of his recent frolicsome adventures. Frankie’s greatly relieved that his buddy Ralph has been sprung from the Big House and is happily if hotly re-united with his family in W.A. Surfs Up, Big Guy!

My soul honours your soul.
I honour the place in you where the entire universe resides.
I honour the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you,
because it is also within me.
In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
UPDATE: In a well ordered world Frankie may have signed in to his first blog with this greeting, mayhaps he did, maybe I mistranscribed the typing. Today’s photo is Frankie in the living room where he’s curiously watching to see if the Turnbull will oust the rascally Wabbott. It’s the first day that his jaunty doggie confidence has re-emerged and he’s busily investigating his territory and wondering whether he’s been replaced in all those action adventures by younger, fitter canines.
“There’s no reality except the one contained within us. That’s why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside themselves for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.”
