Happy Friday all!
My, has this week flown by quickly.
After visiting Iceland where the sun never completely set,
it occurs to me that I just need more hours of daylight in each 24.
I could be so much more productive if that were the case.
Since I am back home in my peaceful little corner of our big world,
a thought keeps circling around my mind.
The news of the world has been tragic and unsettling of late.
Current news is something I usually steer clear of here on the blog...
I choose to offer positivity to the world.
Goodness knows, it's needed.
Don't worry, my head is not in the sand...
I just would rather bring a smile to your face than not.
Now, back to that thought.
As you have seen, I am surrounded by all types of animals here on the farm...
some of whom would be natural enemies in the wild.
Here, however, where everyone feels safe and has their basic needs met...
there is no fear, there is no hatred.
There is peaceful cohabitation between beings that are so vastly different.
I dream of a world in which every person's basic needs are met.
A world in which people feel free to be themselves...
where differences are celebrated.
After all, we are more alike than we are different.
It's our uniqueness that makes us special.
I dream of a world in which evil is not an option...
in which good triumphs.
I dream of a world filled with people who's bodies and souls are well nourished...
a world in which food, and clean water and a comfortable home is enjoyed by all.
My animals have taught me this:
when basic needs are met and there is no fear...
then even enemies can live in harmony.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend, all!
I dream of a world that needs no Memorial Days.
