Daily Prompt: Reason To Believe “In Reason to Believe, Bruce Springsteen sings, “At the end of every hard-earned day / people find some reason to believe.”
I tried to remember this song and didn’t quite succeed. The title of this prompt caused me to jump back in time to a song snippet by Jackson Browne. Now that tune is running through my head on my own personal memory music system. The exact lyrics are:
“Everyone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don’t know about anyone but me”
People aren’t the only ones who need to believe. Dogs have that built into them too. They need to know that their person is there for them. Always. That they are in a kind and respectful partnership with a sometimes unfathomable two-legged creature given to odd behavior traits, like hugging them. Someone who takes them along on great adventures like hikes up the mountain or for a c-a-r r-i-d-e (I need to spell that out and not actually say it if there will be any delay heading to the car).
Speaking of hikes up the mountain, I have to go on one now. My house guest has been poking me with his nose.
