dreamer of yesterday

The moon exploded in my dream last night.. thousands of pieces of this massive gorgeous scattered through the universe, lighting up the night sky as we laid on the concrete driveway and drew each other in pastel chalk. I scrounged for pieces of this white rock.. some hot, squishy, rough and new all at the same time. Little white molten lava. They warmed my pocket as we drew in the beauty. A plane crashed overhead into nothing. Fire filled the sky and lit all of the shiny new rocks with a red vibrance of love and the universe was putting on a show for us. We cried, screamed, hid, and felt the bliss of surprise and the unpredictability of feeling and moment in life. Realizing how very infinite and microscopic it all really is. We tried to reach out... but it only felt farther away. Families cuddled up on the slowly cooling driveway, wishing for tomorrow to come. I sat and dreamt in thoughts of yesterday and smiled up at all of the cheshire cats in the sky.

vibrant dusk

Soaked my feet in the cool ocean, awestruck in the gorgeous hues of the universe, dancing against the flowing breeze.

will this mean anything tomorrow?

Floating by the ocean, a thin layer of moist wraps itself around my dreams and renews the day.

Thank You

A beautiful day of blessings.

Funny how there's just one day a year that we all get together to say thanks.
We should be more thankful.

In Vogue- In High School

A group of young debutante girls modeled the latest fashions for a National Charity League event this past weekend in San Diego. The theme was Cover Girls! Backstage, girls ran around half naked through spotlights, while cliques gossiped and the insecure ritually checked their makeup.

Mark Twain once said, "Of all the creatures ever made, man is the most detestable."

Tears have been pouring out my eyes for the past hour as I watched Earthlings, by far the most horrific documentary I have ever seen. I have been a vegetarian for three years and I never again will take participate in the animal industry.

I cannot comprehend how humans can treat other beings with such disrespect. I cannot accept that the people in these films are human, that I am the same species as them.

I am ashamed. We truly are an evil species.

Most humans try not to know the truth, to pretend what they are eating or wearing is not created purely by the pain and suffering of another creature. This is going on every second of the day, constantly. This is pure malicious cruelty- we do not think of how these animals feel, we only think of our own pleasures. Pleasures that come from their pain. Words truly cannot describe how torturous and cruel we are to the animals at slaughterhouses- it is worse than Nazi Germany- and it is happening now- right now. How can we ever consider the word "humane" to be true when this is how humankind treats another species. We are so thoughtless.

We are all animals of this planet. We are all connected. We need so badly to be kind to one another, to treat all life with respect and compassion, for otherwise we are doomed. Leo Tolstoy once said, "As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields." I could not agree more. Please do yourself a favor, do the world a favor and watch this film. Educate yourself. Read Diet for a New America. Do something.

A day at the zoo.
With a flying pig, a sassy zebra, a wise elephant, and a curious female.
