To embrace a stranger as one’s own. I’s in our nature.

Would you look at the number of stars out tonight,
I can’t think when I’ve ever seen starlight so bright.
You can see why they say it’s romantic, all right;
All those men with Flamenco guitars.

I wish I could live on an island. An island of a few acres, maybe 5-6, in the middle of a river or just off the coast. An island where I would not worry about my neighbors when my dogs are barking insanely at a squirrel snatching every leaf it can fit into its mouth to build a nest.

I decided to run quickly to the little store down the street and pick up some pet food to hold me until I made the big run on Wednesday. Driving through Clear Creek Forest, a car coming in my direction suddenly pulled to the shoulder. Quickly enough to push up a cloud of dust and catch my attention. Shit! A police car!

I am quick to say that I don’t watch much tv. I think tv is more often a habit than anything else. Aside from most things PBS (my equivalent to cable), I watch few programs: Ellen for the simple, hardy belly laughs, Grey’s Anatomy for the characters and Brother & Sisters for the family relationships. Oh, and Nightline — something I have been a fan of for many years; even prior to the platform change.

People are often admired for their passion to a cause, a belief, an idea; respected even. But what of the passions that fail, falling short of their mark, their goal. Where does that energy go? I am in the throes of just such a failure (though my friend Viktor would tell me it is not a failure, but an outcome).

Because raising chickens and enjoying fresh eggs is one thing people can do to off set rising food bills. Its fun, kids love it, and the eggs are healthy and delicious tasting from happy chickens.

I caught the end of the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. Actually I glanced at the tv which was on mute and saw the introduction of an acoustic artist. I am infinitely inspired by acoustic music, so I turned on the sound… and how glad I am that I did because I was introduced to the sound of Angel Taylor.

Dear God, Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim.

If we bring to the world through our lives what we learn about compassion, treating animals better, treating people better, creating a no kill community then it ripples outward. What’s the base of a community without killing ? It may be one more act. Tell one more person of the change you’d like to see. Tell one more person of your vision of the future. If opportunity presents, save one more animal, feed one more stray.

Every so often a funk grabs a hold of me, for no good reason.

I read the following story about the baseball team that sacrificed a snake to end their losing streak. C’mon… what were they thinking???
