A Sumo by the name of Felipe

This is my sumo named Felipe. He lived on the shelf for several years before first traveling with me to Paris. On that trip he became a big part of how I experienced and saw the city. His point of view became mine. He helped me appreciate the little things as well as the overall experience.

Once we returned to the States, Felipe decided that he was no longer going to sit on the shelf and collect dust. He changed his whole life. He now travels with me every day, causing me to pause and appreciate the small things. He has turned a small corner of the world to a whole universe where humor, contemplation and laughter are possible. Enjoy his travels.
