WHAT IS THE "GIVENNESS" OF YOUR LIFE?

a givenness to the dogma

“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased.

It is no small gift.  It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born.  

What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass?  What would this world be like without dogs?”

Mary Oliver, Dog Songs




And the dog down the street.

…I have a givenness to the dogma.
