Hurray! Bohemianmojo has a puppy. Nine-week-old Brig is a working Cocker Spaniel and like most pups she’s cute and adorable but also very naughty and time consuming. We’d forgotten just how much care and attention pups require but it all came flooding back, literally, in pools of pee and deposits of poo. Surely you know your world has shifted seismically when you reach out for some kitchen roll to clean up a wee and think it’s a triumph because you’re just in time to slip it under a tiny bottom to field a poo!

There are many things happening in the industrialized world that give one pause and inspire a deeper look at just what exactly humankind is evolving into. One thing I love about BohemianMojo, if I do say so myself, is our ability to look at many sides of a concept and connect the dots between the progressive possibilities and tried and true traditional wisdom.
