Always With Us

Inter-Species Friends!

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words
but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?"”

Winnie (the) Pooh

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together,
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.”
Winnie (the) Pooh

Stolen from a great blog. Yours?

“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest
waiting for others to come to you.

You have to go to them sometimes.”
Winnie (the) Pooh

Stolen from another cool blog. Thanks fellow blogger!


In the infancy of humankind
the other creatures
were our companions-
not merely our prey,
or threat.

They taught us much.
We clothed our gods
in their forms.
We emulated them
in ceremonies, yoga, and kung fu.

In each of our childhoods
the animals were there:
The crib companion
(dear Teddy Bear)
household pets,
fascinating insects,
patient farm animals,
and always the birds in public.

Still their stories
touch and teach us.

Thank you dear Charlotte,
Big Bird.
