We are NOT alone



We are alone, absolutely alone on this chance planet: and, amid all the forms of life that surround us, not one, excepting the dog (and maybe the cat), has made an alliance with us.

Like Maddy, I love your amendment too! Thanks for this timely reminder. I tend to think it’s more like we’re ‘all one’ rather than alone here.
Hugs and blessings,

I've had some pretty friendly relations with horses, dogs, sheep, goats, chickens, and one very affectionate hamster.

I love the way you write.

Your peace globe from June 2008 has been placed in The Peace Globe Gallery.
You are officially peace globe #1073.
BlogBlast For Peace ~ November 6, 2008 is going to be awesome! Hope to see you there.

That is beautiful, Mary. Make me think of the Rilke poem "Autumn" about leaves falling--everything falling--into the hands of Someone.

Wonderful Mary...just wonderful.

And I skimmed down your blog to catch up on what's been happening. I see you went and did it...you made your hubby land up in the hospital...these men of ours do NEED to learn to shut up. See what happens? rofl

Glad to hear that he's gonna recover nicely..he should have known better.
