Inspirations in life come from everywhere, including how to make a cool coat rack brought to you by a trusty doggie like Cody. But of course you also have to be in a frame of mind that you are open to inspiration. And thank God, Max seems to be steadily on the road to recovery. Heartbreak seems to be losing its gut-wrenching sting.
