For years now, I’ve wanted my very own dog, and suddenly this is a Thing That Actually Happened. I have my very own dog. And I named him Ceiba (Say-ba).
“The ancient Maya of Central America believed that a great Ceiba tree stood at the center of the earth, connecting the terrestrial world to the spirit-world above. The long thick vines hanging down from its spreading limbs provided a connection to the heavens for the souls that ascended them. Even today, these grand trees are regularly spared when forests are cut — it is a common event to see lone, isolated Ceiba trees proudly spreading their shady branches high above a pasture or agricultural field, a relict of the great forests that once were there.” – http://www.ceiba.org
I’ll share the whole story as soon as I can. But let me say that he was definitely worth waiting for. (And I still kind of can’t even believe all of this.) ❤
