Hello Everyone ... Artist and Greyhound Lover Here! -

As you might have guessed from my username, I'm a big fan of retired racing greyhounds. I have one (almost nine years old!), as well as several smaller rescued dogs. I also like cats, although I don't have any at this point.
I'm an artist, a traveler, and am probably best described, spiritually, as an open-minded sceptic. I enjoy medieval re-creation, crafts, and have just been introduced to drumming on djembe (an African hand drum).
I hope to learn, to share, and hopefully make a few new friends here.
Te he, my other four are all Italian greyhounds!!! I didn't know if anyone would know what they are!!! I have two blue boys, a fawn girl, and a seal girl. Mine are angels. Except when they aren't!!! LOL
I particularly love that they snuggle under the covers at night. So sweet and snuggly. Right now they're all snuggled under a blanket sitting next to me. Something about their sweet little faces just makes my heart melt!!!
i too like dogs as well as all the other millions of ani.mate species on the face of the living Earth.
i also have great love for the inanimate part of creation such as Sun, Planets, sky, wind, water, soil basicly, anything made of atoms manifest in the material Uni.verse fill my heart with joy and wonder.
Evidence that cannot dispel all doubt is still evidence - perhaps very good and overwhelming evidence

Welcome to TOL. I'm glad that you like dogs - somebody has to do it & it ain't gonna be me No. Really I like dogs as long as they are not mine.
Also I am very certain about God since I converse with Him daily & He guides me continually and illuminates the beauty of the Creation.
All the other "likes" we actually have in common Imagine that!
Futility: "More than at any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and hopelessness; the other, to total extinction. Let us pray that we will have the wisdom to choose correctly. I speak, by the way, not with any sense of futility, but with a panicky conviction of the absolute meaninglessness of existence."
- Woody Allen
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
