About the author:
William B. Brooks,
is a photographer and writer born in Germany,
who now lives in Whitefish, Montana, USA.
He wandered for many years with his roots stretching in parched places, swamped with futile images conjured by the decaying utterances of lost cultures and opaque chaperons.
Then, one day he found, under the shaggy brown and white coat of his four legged friend Scivias, the wisdom to live his life with authenticity and pleasure.
Then There Was A Dog
What my dog taught me about life
William B. Brooks
A dog will never fret about forgiving you because you never did anything wrong.
William B. Brooks shares in this book his intimate journey with his beloved dog Scivias, a Korthals Griffon.
Scivias had to work in the uncharted territory of William’s heart. He blazed a trail from the head to the heart with such purity and singularity of purpose that it produced in William a profound sense of belonging and caring, resulting in a powerful transformation of consciousness, a knowingness of what it is to love and to be loved.
There is a white fluffy Teddy Bear which I, Scivias keep close to my bed. Sometimes I just rest my head on him and we drop off and dream together. Teddy has taken on my smell. He is my guardian spirit, we are soft and friendly. There are remnants of me on Teddy, a bit of drool, a few strands of brown hair. William has put an orange collar around his neck, just like the one I wear during hunting season.
“ the book…. it arose in a moment of profound grief .... a sense of loss, emptiness …. it claimed it’s value by the tears that were shed …. without conscious thought…. as I say in the book…. it was not possible not to write the book …. it revealed itself…. it demanded to be shared in gratitude .... for it reflects life ....”
