"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious
cruelty with which we treat the animals.
Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity
does not allow us to impose such
sufferings on them. It is our duty to
make the whole world recognize it.
Until we extend our circle of
compassion to all living things,
humanity will not find peace."
All my little wild pets are in hibernation at 10,000 feet (over 3000 meters) up in the Colorado Rocky mountains. I was just going through some of my summer's photos today and nostalgia set in. I miss warm, summer days with these guys. Chippy is the matriarch of the family at five years old. Last May, on my first day at my cabin after a long winter, I got out of my car and called to her. I hadn't seen her for five months, but she heard me and came running the way a dog would. She remembers me from year to year! It's an amazing feeling.
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
~ Henry Miller
