“There’s All Kinds of Beauty in Life”

Our perp was tall and lean and ran very well. For a human, I should add, meaning he was in fact on the slowish side. I loped along behind him as he headed toward the edge of the roof. At the same time, I glanced back to see what was keeping Bernie. And there he was, popping up through the open hatchway from the top floor of the building. My Bernie! The sky was a fiery orange, the way the sky gets around here when the sun goes down, and so Bernie’s eyes and teeth were orange, too. There’s all kinds of beauty in life.

– from Of Mutts and Men, coming July – but available for preorder this very minute.

    Patience hardly seems a virtuous use of one’s time. But books from OFA are definitely a worthy pursuit…so therefore…go for it, Rio!
