Travels with Buster
Diane Viola says: My intention with this book is that it will nurture you, touch your heart and reignite your passion for life, love and all who are dear to you, in whatever form they take. None of us is going to get out of this thing alive! So, while we’re here, we need to make the most of it, to experience life with all its gifts; of joy and sadness, of giving and receiving, of light and darkness, of the courage that comes from ‘seeing things as they are and being willing to meet life on its own terms’ and of the strength that comes from the practice of gentleness. These are the gifts bestowed on me as I traversed this journey of unconditional love with Buster that gave me the trust and faith to engage in the swings and roundabouts of life! May you too be blessed with a little of this magic as you travel the pages of this book in your own imagination.
Pure and simple – that’s a dog’s life! And that is the gift Buster was and continues to be, to me, which I now offer to you, with love.
