“Daisy never left my side. We took long, long walks into the fields surrounding our farm… That is my happy place in my mind, my home, refuge when the shadows catch up and it is time to run again, when, like now, I am homesick for a home that no longer exists, when I have time-traveled too much alone for too many years on too many planets, when the world spins too fast, when I am lost in a great sea of darkness. Then I walk into the field. With Daisy.”

Flemming relives an old memory, with Ben. It may just be particular affinity, but there is great comfort to be had, with a dog.
I love this picture and what a magic afternoon this was. I wonder if my great uncle Carl ever stood with his dog Butch in the same spot on top of that hill, the highest hill in Britton.
Considering how far great uncle Carl wandered, I’m pretty sure he would have stood on Swift Peak many a time through his life. I like to think that Butch came along to keep him company :)
