Ah, to cuddle with a snake!

I meet with snakes, now and then, in my long walks. They are as attracted to me as dogs and cats. We are one life force in varied bodies. Yet, we are one.

Self is an illusion.

I think the snakes could be cool. More of an energizing bodywork rather than fluff n buff salon massage.
I worked for months perfecting a Tui Na stroke that feels like a snake sliding along the client's side.

For all the people who gross out over the nightingale poop, you do know guano from caves was collected for mascara and eyeliner?

So sweet. Animals are amazing, when one takes a moment to notice. Plus, you don't have to be a vega…
