The Dog, the Shepherd, and the Wolf

Robert M. Pirsig died yesterday.
Or at least, that's when I heard about it.
We were very close.
Once, when he lived in Madison, Wisconsin,
I looked up his home address.
This was before there was an internet.
I got a map,
and walked to his house.
This was before there was GPS
and turn-by-turn directions.
I stopped in front of his house
and looked up at it.
You could not see a lot.
And that was it.
We were very close I tell you,
Maybe 200 feet.
That is,
if he was actually home.
