I Ask For the Privilege
I ask for the privilege of not being
born...not to be born until you can assure me
Sincere thanks to Yvonne Presley of Florida's Flagler County Humane Society for sending this to me.
I Am Thankful (Excerpted from the Arizona Republic, Kenneth White, Executive Director of the Arizona Humane Society)
Amidst the discouraging news we are so often forced to face, here are some beautiful words to give thanks to our furry friends as we start the new millennium.
"I am thankful for the soft, warm curve of a dog's face nestling in an open hand. I am thankful for the rich smell of their fur. I am thankful for the conversations with dogs, so often beginning with a callused paw touching a shoulder. I am thankful for the roughhouse play, the chase, rolling together through grass and dirt, lots of legs flying, and then sitting together afterward, quiet, being loved by those chocolate eyes. I am thankful for dogs.
"I am thankful for the intelligent stare of a cat's eyes, direct and unblinking into my own, that impossibly beautiful green or blue or yellow eyes that stare without question or comment, just seeking connection. I am thankful for the electric touch of that small, lithe frame. I am thankful for the soundless conversations with cats, the lengthy, silent, late-night talks. I am thankful for the way they nestle around my body, making blankets of themselves. I am thankful for cats.
"I am thankful for the relationships that all of us human animals can have with the Earth's so many other animal inhabitants."
