We are ever reminded that none of this, not this body, not this life, none of this is ours. We’re just a sack of flesh and bones on loan like a musty prom tuxedo. DNA is nothing more than a scrapbook of every mistake made by evolution and our ancestors, a few triumphs in there too. .
My home was nearly destroyed this winter from a flood. Nothing that couldn’t be replaced was damaged. My van broke down in my driveway recently. There was a small engine fire after we jumped the battery. In March my 15 year old dog developed pancreatitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, kidney issues, an infected fistula in his mouth, an ulcer, cataracts and a mass in his bowel that all presented basically in the same week. I put my life and work on hold just to manage the 14 medications he was on and inhalers he was on and the 2 inhalers he needed twice daily. He lost half his body weight in one weekend and I now know what the Bardo smells like.
It’s now October. Insurance covered the home repairs. My van is at a reputable mechanic in town that said they can fix it. Tito was well enough to be at my wedding in Tahoe this summer. He wore a tuxedo and we slept in a tipi in Wapiti Valley on the drive home. On Friday Tito had a seizure. I took this photo shortly before the vet told me he was suffering kidney failure and needed to go to the ER immediately.
It’s now Monday. The hospital called and told me I can take him home. His kidney function is back to normal after a few days of treatment and is doing well. I’m living a country song in reverse. They say it’s better to have loved and lost. I say it’s better to have loved and fight for our lives until our very last breath. We don’t know what our expiration date is, but may we all be tough fuckers like Tito. His time isn’t up yet and if he had middle fingers he would be waving them at whoever was trying to convince him otherwise.
⚠️ Warning sappy love post 💕
Happy anniversary baby! These first two years of marriage have been amazing! I can’t wait to finish spending forever with you.

Can I know you?
I am Afolasade Ekundayo, the creative director of @glamccessorizer, I am a lover of craft and I know I could work for days on pieces and not flinch, on the other hand I sleep off 20mins into a movie(I am not proud of it, that’s just when I realize how tired have been😢) or just after my popcorn is finished (sometimes😆not all the time)
P.S- I am a shy extrovert😁
