This 'N' That
I'm a mutt, a Heinz 57,....part English, Irish, Scottish, French, German and a pinch of Native American for good measure.

I don't get to my Care2 page as often as I'd like...but I do try and read all my email, even if I don't answer all of it.

The Redwoods
Here, sown by the Creator's hand.
In serried ranks, the Redwoods stand;
No other clime is honored so,
No other lands their glory know.

The greatest of Earth's living forms,
Tall conquerors that laugh at storms;
Their challenge still unanswered rings,
Through fifty centuries of kings.

The nations that with them were young,
Rich empires, with their forts far-flung,
Lie buried now--their splendor gone;
But these proud monarchs still live on.

So shall they live, when ends our day,
When our crude citadels decay;
For brief the years allotted man,
But infinite perennials' span.

This is their temple, vaulted high,
And here we pause with reverent eye,
With silent tongue, and awe--struck soul;
For here we sense life's proper goal;

To be like these, straight, true and fine,
To make our world,like theirs, a shrine;
Sink down, Oh, traveller, on your knees,
God stands before you in these trees.

Author: Joseph B. Strauss
Builder of the Golden Gate Bridge


A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves. No wonder the hills and groves were God's first temples, and the more they are cut down and hewn into cathedrals and churches, the farther off and dimmer seems the Lord himself.
John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914

A PRAYER FOR ANIMALS
Hear our humble prayer, O G_d, for our friends, the animals. Especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity. And for those who deal with them, we ask a heart of compassion, gentle and kindly words. Make us true friends of the animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful. ~ Albert Schweitzer
                                    ~~~~~~
"All who have respect for life must help animals to make up for the great miseries men inflict upon them."  Dr. Albert Schweitzer
