Freedom on Both Ends of the Leash

A Dog, His Man, Their Journey
Edition year: 2014
HorizonsUnlimited description:

This is my Journal. It is just another Life story with it’s steps awaiting one by one toward healing, toward sensing what was only a blur and a dark tunnel just a few years past. What was once a narrow path has widened joined in by so many Friends and acquaintances lifting us up every step of the way. The World is so full of beautiful people, don’t let anyone tell you of the contrary.

Spirit? well… we have grown together 24/7. He has become my Life as I know vice versa is also true. We are one now. He is quite the rider in his own sidecar and such a ham when wearing his goggles and helmet.

Our destination is unknown, it is the Journey that matters, it is our own growth that sits above it all and guide us through the many moments acquired these days. We pretty much try to follow the weather, North in the Summer and South in the Winter. We have been fortunate to acquire some Land in Texas, near Big Bend. I call it “The Oasis” and it’s giant Fire Ring is the Center of my own Universe where Serenity, Peace and Love reigns within the Spiritual Space we spend some time of the year, sheltered from the harsher elements residing North of us.

Cooking, riding the motorcycle and sidecar rig, my dog Spirit, my Dear Friends, photography, writing, reading, roasting and drinking coffee, camping, sailing, movies… no television and Life itself… all of the above fills up our moments, one at the time.

HorizonsUnlimited reviews:

Another reviewer wrote:

"It's a very gentle, flowing tale, a nice mix of autobiography and travelogue. Less introspective than I anticipated, I'm having a hard time putting it down actually. The fun you had writing it certainly jumps off the page. It's poignant but not sad."

Shawn Connor wrote:

"Received my book about a week ago and I am taking my time reading it. Ara's thoughts, observations, and words have depth and his writing should not be skimmed over or rushed through. Much like riding, it's about enjoying the scenery, the smells, and sensations that come with motorcycle travel. With Ara's book, the same applies while reading his book."
