haunting memories II: zen

 

along the solitude walks in costa rica’s vivid nature and during theses never ending bus rides, the mind sometimes runs wild and brings back places, people and regrets I’ll be never able to forget.

Heggenes, Norway - April 2018

although I only spoke to dogs for most of the time and only met a hand full of people while I was living in Valdres, the few once that I’ve met did inspire me and shaped my image of Norway. Including of course Marit and Susana, two truly amazing women, who had to handle me for over 7 month. But this one goes out to a young veterinarian who helped me when I was at my worst. 

I felt so much emptiness after the misery that I have caused. For the pain he had to endure because of my failures. But the warmth and gentleness you’ve put in his treatment and the bold courtesy in wich you managed to overlook my ignorance and faults left me with nothing but gratitude.
You have chosen to dedicate your life to ease pain and rescue the lives of animals and that makes you the hero of my days. For you have not only saved Zen but also cured my state self-pity and regret. You gave this little man back the future that I had so carelessly endangered. So at last, from the bottom of my tiny heart: Thank you!
