I always talk to birds and trees, any animal I see, really. I say hello and tell them they are beautiful and that I appreciate them. With trees, when I hug them, I tell them to take what they need from me and to please pass along their strength and resilience to me. We exchange energy and blend. That makes sense to me since we are all made out of the same stuff, just put together differently.
When I asked the chicklets and their friends to pose for this picture and told them what the heading would say, they were confused. They said, “Why wouldn’t someone be happy for someone else?” I started to explain but found that I didn’t really know the answer. Chicklets don’t understand jealously, resentment, hatred or greed. Those words don’t exist in their world. So I shrugged and said, “I have no idea why some people aren’t happy for others.” They said, “We are happy for everyone because when someone is happy then we are all happy too.” I kissed all of them and thanked them for posing. I told them I would pass along their chirps and peeps.
I think cows are wonderful. Some of them don’t have very nice lives. So this is for cows everywhere. Next time you see cows, roll down your window and tell them you think they are beautiful. It just might make their day…yours too:)
Love animals, don’t eat them.
