The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

||I truly believe..if not for my interactions with the creatures of this planet I wouldn't be the person I am today. They are the most incredible & patient of teachers..we need not look further for the 'real' angels on earth. It not only breaks my heart..but it completely stuns me when I meet or hear of people who say or do cruel things to them..how can they not 'get' what profound gifts they are? I will always give of myself to them..for they have given me uncountable reasons' to live every single day with hope and joy.
A little about me.
My world..as it is..in all its splendor..dysfunction and highness has been spent mostly on my own. Although blessed with loving parents and many friends..I seem to enjoy alone time more than most. I've reached this place where I've a need to seriously examine what sun-set I want to be heading into during the second half of my life. Now..I 'assume' it's the second half of my life because everything has suddenly become harder physically and more profound mentally. As well I'll hit 50 years of age in the next year. Really I'm being a tad presumptous as I suppose I could drop dead like anyone else at anytime. Still..I'll 'assume' I've yet a few more years to go on this planet.
My goal: To see, listen, hear, feel, love, learn & teach..and when I know better..to do better.

|Wild Fact About Me
||I once rode a horse in the nude, not so wild & Crazy..but I highly recommend it!
||Live and let live..get off of the sidelines and into the march..say no or yes..as long as it's what you mean..be nice (whenever possible).
|What Gives Me Hope
||Animals and the people who love them, the 4 seasons, young people with old souls, freedom, people who give a damn, people who emit a sense of truth
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||Pass a mandatory "Spend a day with an animal" bill. Wouldn't be popular with everyone..but it would hopefully make a point..send a message and just maybe turn some people around to the magic of them.
|What/who changed my life and why
||My mother..because she's given me all the tools I'll ever need to make it through with decency..fairness..love..candidness & laughter of course. A little book by the name of "The Outsiders,' gave me my first real glimpse outside of my parents world. I was 7 when I picked it up in the school library and recall how I wouldn't put it down until I'd reached the ending. A work of fiction..it changed how I saw the world at the time. For the bad or the good? For both I believe...in that I suddenly became aware of all these things at once, and wondered how they might pertain to my life outside of family. It spoke to reality, harshness, goodness, friendship, loyalty insecurity & consequences all at once. A far cry from the fairy tale I was used to and a lot for a 7 year old to take in.
