Love in a time of Catastrophy

Because i had to .. and also because i am so tired of seeing all the damage and destruction.. yes our island is destroyed but not our core. =) our hibiscus and birambi trees are already blooming... little hopes and inspirations .. the stars are smiling too.. so in that interest..

i'm just gonna do my do.. and hope for the best .. and quick recovery for us all. =) even the jackspanjards.. (yes i been feeding them - they lost their homes too)

let's think about the positive .. about being humble.. about changing our attitudes and treatments of others.. not just humans but animals and environment.. as a people.. bc real talk.. the amnt of negativity (animal neglect abuse - environmental exploitation - hatred and envy ) these things fuel the BS. let us not add to fueling any BS ..

u with me? even if u skeptical.. or think this is some hippy talk.. no worries.. but .. just think abotu it..

.. just think about it.. there is a reason we experience pain and loss and suffering.. only via humility can we recognize and allow this pain to motivate growth and growth.. brings change.. positive change. unity.

no fear no hate be assertive for what we believe in and deserve.. no bending over without lube.. we need to come together to fight together...

THINK .. wake up.. go get a FREE (donated) bag of dog food and feed a stray.. repair your karma !!!!!!!! enjoy

Happy Birthday D ! =)
