Story pick: The rhythm of the day

By Christian Davenport

The dog doesn't get nearly as much attention now that we have twins. But he waits patiently while the babies take their bottles until, finally, it's his turn for breakfast. So much has changed in his world--and ours. Still, the walk is the same. He does his thing on the same corner, sniffs the same light poles, walks the same route, taking pleasure, I like to think, in the routine. I know I do. Funny how we adapt when so much around us changes. Not sure why all this has been on my mind of late. Maybe it's the change of season. The house feels so warm when we come back from our walk, and so full with cooing and happy squealing and a mother singing softly to her children. Fed and walked, the dog settles in for his morning nap. Some things don't change, which is perhaps why this this wonderful piece from the New York Times' Veryln Klinkenborg resonated with me. Hope it does with you as well.
