Cody is now on the other side. But he still talks to me. And has been insisting I continue his blog. And so I’ve agreed. Because what else can you do when your small black dog still loves you and that love feels as vibrant as ever? And when he inspires you and asks you sweetly every day, day after day, to share his messages?  And so, without further ado,  here is what he said this morning:

“What if you were unafraid?” asked Cody while I was making coffee.

“What do you mean?” I said. “Of what?”

He was immediately excited that I was listening, and so he quickly told what he meant:

“What if failure didn’t matter because there is no such thing? So instead of asking what you would do if you knew you could not fail, the question became ‘What would you do if you were unafraid? What would you do if failure didn’t matter because the possibility of it is non-existent –not because of some guaranteed definition of success but because there literally is no such thing?’

What would you do? What would stop you?

What if the only important thing is that we express ourselves? What then?”

“You mean like writing and publishing this blog?” I asked.


And then I could see that gleam in his eyes and sense his tail wagging wildly with delight.

And so, here it is. Thank you, Cody.
