Had a great time at a CAT event this weekend 😃 Got to see a lot of amazing dogs run and learned so much! We walked away (literally, we were so tired after 2 days! 😉) with a new title 🏅and a beautiful handmade slip lead by @codyscreations which totally brought us good luck 👍
#dog#peace The brilliant Mr Kundera always pulls me me back through his genius, his philosophical simplicity. I met Mr Kundera through his work #theunbearablelightnessofbeing when I was 18 and it opened a universe unknown and untapped. It’s strange that a book, the words, the characters, the love, the story played out in those pages that I devoured and absorbed and felt connected to, I only now fully understand. Teresa and Thomas, their flawed love and unspoken wants and expectations from one another. Thomas’s transgressions like flagellations upon Teresa’s soul. His sexual escapism with Sabrina the artist who hates kitsch and loves betrayal. The shame and self loathing of Teresa against her body and Sabrina’s oneness and use of her own for pleasure. The heaviness of Teresa, the lightness of Sabrina. All this aside l celebrate Karenin, Teresa’s dog through whom Mr Kundera delivers the true message of unconditional love - I could live on that hillside with @caius_ridgeback
