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!
