Animal Bullies

Dear Friends,
There is something so absolutely pacifying in a wagging tail or a wet nose against a palm. Animals bring magic to our lives. They make us smile-

car and mojoIt is so very sad when animals languish in shelters. Are we not their caretakers?  It is so very sad when magnificent creatures are cut down because it is easy. One wouldn’t dare approach a gorilla bare-fisted. Our power is in body-splitting metal equipment only, we own nothing naturally. We trigger from a safe distance then take our prizes in hands and horns and leave the rest to waste. How sad for us.

gorilla I hold hope, as many of you do. We are better than those few who maim for profit. We are better than those who buy then throw on the street because the puppy didn’t fit ‘the dream.’ We will be better. We are good and kind and animals too…

rhinoThank you and goodnight. May you dream of fantastic jungles and leap from vines of silken pillows.
Peace my friends…

  1. If there was an “LikeALL+Past+Present+Future” Button for your Art and writing I would have presssed it around the time when Stevie wonder discovered he could sing (Long time ago) .At the moment far up north , near article circle .Got a long day of work and “importants” on my to do list today but starting up with reading your latest post/drawing and a cup of well brewed Tea always makes me in a good mood .. It´s like giving someone a ballon ..It´s impossible not to smile … Remeber ..Nearly 6 billion people didn´t woke up today with your talent..Go easy on them ❤


    • Oh geez, thank you my friend – way too kind 🙂 Funny I was just talking about Stevie Wonder the other day in the car. One of his songs was playing and I was telling my son – how talented Stevie is and how amazing his talent truly is. I continue to draw, Simon and wish I had the confidence you have in my ability. I’m drawing lots this summer so I hope to see some improvement 🙂 I hope your beautiful family is safe and well. Have a joyous week! And keep lots of tea on hand to get through that list of yours 🙂
      AnnMarie 🙂
