This is not about some ritualistic routine that I perform in order to become or stay lucky but rather a routine that I consider myself lucky to be able to go through each and every morning. The polar bear/wolf cross that you see above is Tintin and he's about 2 years old. He's sleeping next to my leg as I write this post, tired from the outing you see captured in the photos.
Every morning, I'm up bright and early so that we can go for a quick hike in the forest before I start work. I must admit, some days I just want to sleep in but once we get out there, seeing him turn into the happiest guy in the world makes it 100% worth it. It's also a great opportunity for me to forget about work, facebook, email etc. and just simply enjoy the moment. For the first time, I thought I'd bring my camera along to share this part of my day with you.
