15. High Key (Week 24)

“The Howling Dog”

I heard the story of a dog that was sitting on a front porch, howling in misery. A stranger approached and asked the owner why the dog was howling. The owner replied that the dog was sitting on a nail.

“Why doesn’t he get off the nail?” asked the stranger.

The owner replied, “I guess it doesn’t hurt enough.”

This is a pretty deep parable, if you thing about it.  The question is, what is Your nail?


Roxy came to mind when I saw the High Key theme. I understand this is also a photography term, but interpretation is in the mind of the blogger!  When we encourage Roxy to howl by simply tilting back our head, the hound in her emits quite the high pitch!
