being an atheist, I forego all of the "religious" trappings of The Blessing of the Animals, However Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone (St. Francis of Assisi) is to be commended for his love of all creatures great & small and the natural world as a whole. May all the creatures be able to live in peace & without fear

We missed broadsiding a deer earlier this week. It came out of nowhere from in the woods, at full speed & was inches from our car. How we missed it was just plain luck.

It's rut season folks, so if you are in areas where deer are usually, take extra caution as they kinda lose their minds this time of year.

i almost got a free little senior dog a couple of days ago. school bus stopped in the road in front of my house and waited for something. i checked and this little doggie was there. i slowly walked up to her so she wouldn't spook and fortunately she came to me. fortunately she also had a rabies tag from a local vet and i called them and gave them the number and they called her real parents. she was home again soon. if you have a dog don't just let it out to pee unless leashed or in an enclosed area please.

Saint Francis and the Sow
By Galway Kinnell


The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don’t flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing;
as Saint Francis
put his hand on the creased forehead
of the sow, and told her in words and in touch
blessings of earth on the sow, and the sow
began remembering all down her thick length,
from the earthen snout all the way
through the fodder and slops to the spiritual curl of the tail,
from the hard spininess spiked out from the spine
down through the great broken heart
to the sheer blue milken dreaminess spurting and shuddering
from the fourteen teats into the fourteen mouths sucking and blowing beneath them:
the long, perfect loveliness of sow.
