I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human, is everything all right?
Me: Yes, strangely, I believe it will be.
Stella: I think things are too quiet. Humans are hardly ever this quiet.
Me: True. There are loud places. But there are also quiet places.
Stella: Like when you got quiet this morning and looked at the floor.
Me: That was head bowing. I wasn’t really studying the floor.
Stella: I thought not. It is hard to see anything when your eyes are closed. I can’t see anything when my eyes are closed. I figure humans are the same way.
Me: Yeah, and sometimes we can’t see anything when our eyes are wide open either. But we keep looking.
Stella: Tell me what we are looking for. I can help. Though my nose is better than my eyes. Maybe you should try opening your nose.
