“I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
Quote from the Bhagavad Gita, where Vishnu transfoms himself into Kali, the Hindu goddess of death, that flashed through the mind of Robert J. Oppenheimer after witnessing the first atomic bomb test.
As faithful readers of this blog know, my dog Baby passed away at age 14 in May. Go here to read about it. Yesterday my bride and I adopted a Jack Russell terrier, Cali, from the McLean County Humane Society in Normal, Illinois. The staff were friendly and efficient, and we were in and out in 40 minutes. I regard it as propitious that we adopted Cali on the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi.
Jack Russell Terriers tend to have only one mode, fast, and Cali is a typical Jack Russell! We are enjoying her immensely and thus far she has wreaked no destruction. Hopefully we will not have to change her name to Kali, and her energy will continue to be used for fun instead of havoc!
