I have a new puppy! She's a tiny purebred Maltese with a very sweet disposition and an intense attraction to my socks! I went to Busan today to get her, and with the help of my friend Jen, the journey was a success. I couldn't decide what to name my little girl, so I let her pick out her name. I called her by the top few names I liked, and the only one she responded to was Mindy. In fact, she actually comes (most of the time) when I call her that! I'm wondering if the breeder was calling her a similar name, or if she just likes the way Mindy sounds.

She's so cute. Hmm.. After feeding her, then.. she looks sad as if she knows what's going on.. in the last picture. Kidding! :P

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
