The pieces in this series consider metaphorical definitions of vessel,
which invite one into the arena of the spiritual and inexplicable.
Considering beings as vessels is easy in certain contexts;
for me, yoga welcomes this realm,
as does spending time with dogs and other animals.
Practicing yoga allows me to feel how my body is a container for energy,
while communing with canines reveals them to be barrels of emotion.
Its hard to miss the overflowing feelings of a joyful dog!
