If you read Will My Dog Hate Me (and if you don’t, why not?), you’ve probably read that blogger and professional writer Edie Jarolim has asked me to serve on an “accountability panel” to help her meet her goal to self-publish a book on pet travel.
I’m pleased to help offer some encouragement and gentle nudging to help her meet her deadlines.
What Edie doesn’t know is that I used to be the managing editor of the Journal of Presbyterian History. That was a long time ago. But I have had some practice
beating berating yelling at encouraging writers to get their work done.
What I want to know, Edie, is when will I get the whip I saw in the illustration for your post?
Ok, enough silly stuff. Time for a video to send you into your weekend.
I looked for something with a travel theme to celebrate Edie’s new project. My favorite video doesn’t quite fit the scope of Edie’s book but it’s charming nonetheless.
What I really enjoyed was watching everyone shift their weight to respond to the motion of the boat. Many of us don’t use our bodies to shift and respond to motion that way without thinking–unless you sail, or ride the subway. Using our bodies without being self-conscious is one of those times we become more like a dog, don’t you think?
