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
If dogs run free
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.
