"I think I could turn and live with animals,
They are so placid and self contained." 
~ Walt Whitman ~

There is something centering and healing about interacting with animals. They bring us smack dab into the present moment with the sheen of their coats or feathers, the cock of their heads, the sound of their breathing, and the penetrating all-knowing gaze of their eyes.
     To be able to share this life on earth with the beauty and fascination and comfort of animals is an extraordinary blessing and an incontrovertible gift.

I appreciate the grace and authenticity of animals.
