FOOD for your Thought

Thank you Fang for sharing the link with me.

Monday today, it's a good day to start your week by thinking outside your mundane everyday problem, by watching this rethink your relationships with `many people' today.

a few quotes from this video..

"Animals shall not be measured by man, in a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of these senses we have lost or never attained,living by voices we shall never hear.

They are not brethren, they are not underlings, they are other nations...caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

"Surely, if slaughterhouses had glass walls, would not all of us be vegetarians? But
slaughterhouses do not have glass walls. The architecture of slaughter is opaque, designed in the interest of denial, to insure that we will not see even if we wanted to look. And who wants to look?

Fight Club

It's not uncommon that many of us find ourselves getting all upset in ridiculously petty situations, for some of us, quite often.

Am the kind of person who's spent half my life going through good days, bad days, good days, nasty day, smooth day, etc...snap someone's head off if he steps on my end, punch back when I got bullied, kiasu, be the bad guy instead of the one gets bullied...

But growing older and reading the news can change a person. This entry was inspired during a chat today with SM, narrating through an incident with loved ones...I had what I'd called, an outburst of philosophy there.
Janet: ..i duno, i dunwan to sound preachy or smart ass but sometimes i look around me
there are so many mean n unkind things happening, i feel tired.
Janet: n i feel that given the facts of life is so harsh for many parts of the world n some parts of our lives, that take away the reason to argue with anyone at all -- let alone the people i love.
so i think thats a pretty good reason to never have to get upset with my man, for example.

Life is too short to have enemies, fights, arguments, is not dull without fighting, peace is not dull, it makes a charmed life admist the craziness around us.

For the love you bring won't mean a thing untill you sing sing sing...

I've been for days being very reflective...maybe the cold bug makes me that ;p

As I lied this morning next to the man I love so much and who loves me back dearly...I cannot help but wonder for myself, and for everyone out there...

Will the love you bring to the world, will your passions and your work still mean the same thing to you if you haven't got a partner who is there for your at the end of your journey everyday? No matter how far apart or near, this person shares your life and your inspirations, your pain and your joy...everything.

I wonder because I cannot answer myself if what I am today, and tomorrow will mean the same to me if I haven't got J in my life.

I don't think am a hopeless romantic but a what do you think? Is life condemned just because you are alone on the road?

Snowy, Paatchi, Brownie, Cutie & Ciku!

*...a bit depressed but hopeful...* first trip ever to the pound today. Setapak. It was raining. All the dogs were silent when we walked in. The six of us, looking to rescue a few dogs today, marched into where the dogs (mostly waiting to be put down eventually, but soon) are kept. The painful silence was paired with the mournful, hopeful, heart-wrenching-sad looks on those canines faces. Within minutes I had to hold back tears and keep calm.

Come and see me tomorrow! My name is Cutie!
We walked around the cages, helping Lynn who is getting some old folks home ready to choose a few dogs for the new homes. The dogs slowly started to cry, mostly they sat close to their cage doors and stared at us, trying to reach out to whatever human warmth they could during our stay there.

I could go on, mere words just couldn't describe what it was like to be there, in the company of these harmless, friendly, helpless animals, looking up at you, hoping to leave with you when you go.

We had to painfully choose 5 pups to go home with, for adoption. Lynn got her four adult dogs. They were estatic once they got out of the cages and it was just pure joy to see them out of there. But those we left behind....sigh.

The five lovely bundle of joy are now available for adoption. We have sent them to the vet for cleaning, vaccination, de-worming and whatever is needed to get them ready for adoption. They will be `on display' tomorrow evening at the Attic where a bunch of us are performing at WILD @ Attic, fund-raising concert for Independent Pet Rescuers.

Earlier, on the way to the vet from the pound...

hello Brownie!
Cutie :)
My favourite one, the endearing Paatchi
am...dreaming of a new home with nice people....

Adopt a rescued pup, stop buying from the shops -- we have as a society created enough sorrow for the animals, stop today.
