so....i just got home from work (thank you greg for putting the barn guys to bed!) and i have to leave to pick up sheila at 4 am...ouch.
you know...this trip is such a political hot potato. do you know what horrible, shameful, cowardly thought i had late last night?...let it go...don't put saints or yourself at risk....good thing i don't listen to well cuz now i am ok again...whew, that was scary. are you ever afraid that one day you will wake up and not be yourself anymore? i suppose i could wake up and be someone better tho too....that would be good.
there have been some relatively strong and consolidated statements on the rescue boards that it doesn't matter what sheila and my perspectives happen to be, no one will listen, and no one will care because everything has already been decided and all the right judgements have been made. we are just wasting our time and our money.
ok then, nice to know in advance that all doors and windows in all the minds of the entire rescue world have been slammed shut and locked up tight and then boarded up for good measure too...wow, i wish i had that kind of power....except...isn't it kind of dark and stuffy in there?
gee, if i had known that door to understanding was locked and chained...i could have stayed in bed til the sun came up....except then i would have missed something that is important to me...supporting and promoting and respecting the work of rescuing animals in need.
i am so looking forward to this trip and learning some more things to help me grow in my own understanding of the challenges in rescue, esp that in the north....yvette put on the kettle for tea, i am bringing the cookies and lets share a few stories. i will tell you about ellie mae.
