be kind to animals

Yesterday was the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.

Not something people other than Catholics (and Anglicans) would know, or be expected to know.

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. I don't know too much about him myself, only what I've learned from the little research I did today.

But his policy of being kind to animals, even to  a wolf,  'the fierce wolf that had ravished' the flocks of the people of some part of Italy 'because through hunger "Brother Wolf" had done this wrong'

That's got to make you think. 

Ours is a stewardship of the earth. 

#shadeofgreen- be kind to animals. Let them have their space. And may the tigers you befriend come to your funeral!
in memory of Ming, Simba, Rachel, Mumu, Kiko and all other beloved animals

I'm back (I think) from a period of work and rest that lasted all of 7 months.

I'm back and I'm ready to nag. Nay, not nag (should that be 'neigh, not nag'? Any horse lovers here?).

I'm back and ready to advise.

It seems a warmer planet makes us more violent.

So there's a lot of energy that just isn't being used right. Fossil and otherwise.

What should we do? Exercise. Take the stairs. Run around. Walk places. Not sit by the sushi conveyor belt.

Why? Because we get healthier in a less artificial way. Our planet gets healthier. It expends less on making our lives 'easy'

This is my theory, anyway.

And one of my #50shadesofgreen.

seeking a friend for the end of the world. or an energy source...

We survived the end of the world!
I'm still getting over my disappointment.
Ah well.

I figure it's just as well that the world didn't end, since I didn't have candles to get me through the long night. Or a torch that doesn't run on batteries. How would I have survived without light by which to read all the books I bought at the grand sale at Bur Juman in October?

Shade of green: Use your energy to make energy.Like with the Ljusa torch from Ikea. It's hand-powered (no more idle hands, eh Devon Sawa?)
Reminds me of the dynamo that you still see on some cycles in Goa.

Happy New Year, green people!
