Hello anybody who still is possibly watching me, It has been sometime hasn't it. Sorry about dropping off the face of the earth and all but there was so much to do. There have been a lot of dog training conventions ranging from leading to walking to cueing, tricks, agility, herding (not sure cueing is a word) and despite me not having a dog the events have always been great. It's really insightful hearing and watching other trainers give advice or lessons about dog training and even coming up with different ways to go about a problem that so many trainers (myself included) have common issues with. I even got to throw my own techniques into the fold and was elated to hear that my methods are useful. Complements coming from trainers who have way more experience than me are especially rewarding. A node in my direction as to say you're all right. I don't think i could of been anymore radiant if I had a halogen lamp strapped to my head, probably a good sign of how green i am when the slightest complement sets my a glow lol

This years has been detrimental to me even though it wasn't profitable. Florida was a bad choice in that regard but I managed to gain so much in such a short time, I know a year ( two in March) doesn't seem like a short time to most but it really is. It's unquestionable that you can grow and accomplish quite a bit in a year it really is only the beginning a chance to lay the foundation of what you want to work towards. I wish SVA was as productive a coarse as the APDT. Hands on experience, live demonstrations, events, work shops and opportunities to demonstrate and learn, In the dog training world we having a saying and that's "Set the dog up to succeed" put the extra time in even if that means months of work, use methods that enforce growth and reward change. Quick solutions only set someone up for failure and moving forward to early simply because you don't have the time can be harmful to growth. I've gain a wealth of experience not just as a trainer but some much needed mental clarity this time around that I won't soon forget and even cherish.

But enough of my self satisfaction, the news is  I'll be heading home to NJ come the 14th taking a long road trip and making some fun stops along the way (universal studios and sea world for one, been wanting to do that since landing in FL)  a trip that will give me some much needed quite time.  The reason i love driving is cause all you have to think about is driving, no troubles, no woes, still plenty of worries but mostly on not getting hit by a truck or side swiped by someone merging into your lane.  I imagine driving for me is a lot like fishing for others just time to be out on the lake. I've been so focused this past year that it's hard to remember the last time I simply sat down to enjoy something other than my frequent family and friend visits that is.  I've been so focused on my goal that i set my dreams aside, I even had to sell my art table among many other things in order to move so I'm not sure what's happening with art anymore, like so many of my SVA brothers and sisters I find myself focusing on my work and leaving my art to the wind. 

But who knows what tomorrow will bring, one thing's for sure there's no point living in yesterday. Off on another great adventure.
