The Dog Star: Braking

(The Dog Star is a symbol of power, will, and steadfastness of purpose, and exemplifies the One who has succeeded in bridging the lower and higher consciousness. – Astrological Definition)

Bentley ran out so fast this morning that he ran right past a duck which, inexplicably, was sitting on the lawn. The duck looked as though it had seen an apparition, and took off for the tennis court (then the pool and, finally, the pond where it lives).

Bentley threw on the brakes after another dozen yards, and turned around to watch the duck desperately trying to gain air speed. I don’t want to print what I think he was muttering.

I’m all for speed. But the fastest cars also have the largest brakes. Be prepared to stop on a dime for opportunity.
