If Dogs Run Free
by Bob Dylan
If dogs run free, then why not we
Across the swooping plain?
My ears hear a symphony
Of two mules, trains and rain
The best is always yet to come
That’s what they explain to me
Just do your thing, you’ll be king

When I first arrived in Thailand, one of the first things I noticed was there were dogs running free, something you never see in California any more, where nearly every dog is on a leash. The Dylan song immediately popped into my head and when I looked up the lyrics, the first verse seemed very appropriate to my new adventure in Thailand. So here I am, doing my thing, king in my own little world, but now located in an entirely new country and culture for me. We're definitely not in Kansas any more and I quickly felt the need for a platform where I can tell my friends around the world about this amazing new phase in my life.
You Don't See Redheads Very Often in Thailand!
This big boy was in front of the gym at Dhurakij Pundit University, right next to the quarter mile track while I was walking two miles on the track. He didn't budge when I came over to get his picture, even though I talked to him as I was taking two pictures. Later I did see him get up slowly and move to a new spot about two feet away. So Big Red was free, no leash, but not doing much running. Still, I decided he belonged here.When I was in college I had a full beard, which was dark blonde with some of this red mixed in.
