Night falls

the blanket of darkness
falls around me, making space
for the events of the day to relax,
be still and simply
what they are,
casting no shadows,
opening themselves up
not for scrutiny under bright inspection,
but for expansion into spaces
not dreamt of in the harsh light of day.

Faux Paw

The cat has finally forgiven me for my terrible “faux paw” this morning.

I had taken the viola out of its dusty case and played a few scratchy scales. The cat stared at me first in disbelief, then pain, then horror, then anger, as her pupils widened and she slunk away to the furthest corner of the room. I put the instrument away, which did not assuage her fury.

Upon inquiry, she declared that I had assaulted her delicate triangular ears with this monstrosity, and would not speak to me further for two hours.

She relented after a nap and is now nestled on my lap.Image

The law should protect the innocent, not shelter animal abusers. Stand up against “Ag Gag” laws.

Democracy Now reports:
“So-called ‘ag-gag’ bills that criminalize undercover filming on farms and at slaughterhouses to document criminal animal abuse are sweeping the country. Five states, including Missouri, Utah and Iowa, already have such laws in place. North Carolina has just become the latest state to consider such a law, joining a list that includes Arkansas, California, Indiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Vermont.” 
And the New York Times reports the same thing.
This is so wrong. How is it possible in the “land of the free” that documenting and reporting a crime can BE a crime? This is Orwellian and mindbogglingly wrong. Please, people in states that have these laws or are contemplating these laws – Missouri, Utah and Iowa, already have such laws in place – North Carolina, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Vermont are contemplating – CALL and WRITE and EMAIL your state legislators today and stop these awful Ag Gag laws.
