45-cents for a bullet


  I think most of us reach a point in our lives where we question our value in this world...our contribution if not our lasting impression on the planet.   My world has become so microscopically focused that I am losing the simple joys that I've lived long enough to appreciate.  I'm forced by circumstance to be away for extended periods from my beloved pets and home.  I feel like a stranger there when I can show up.  I know what I want to do for the future but I cannot see a way to get there from here.  It's just outside of my reach.  Then I read a story about what one woman can do to make a tiny part of the world a better, more humane place in the face of great hardship.    A single minded focus to stop suffering and needless death.  Just 1 person determined to change something that matters to her.  I'm just 1 person and there is something that matters to me - I can do this.

              Oh, and the numbers, 4654  1177 711

Hey Jake-- your title alarmed me because I know you are really driving yourself of late. As someone who has burned out a few times in the past let me say this--- it's easier to prevent a burn-out than to recover from one. When bedtime comes, it is more important than the matter still not finished. It will be there tomorrow to work on where you left off. Please consider my advice as a friend.
Caring about you,

TA - did not mean to cause alarm, the title is from the article and arguably a terribly sad comment on how flushable so much life is considered. I would never leave the animals I've rescued and promised a safe forever home unless forced to.   Thank you for caring.   You are right, I am driving myself hard and I do need rest. My best to you again for caring. Jake

The article at bestfriends.org has been moved apparently and I've contacted them asking for a direct link, in case someone does want to see this article.

        TA, Chp - Thank you!
