Happy Christmas, D.

Love at Christmas from the Muddy Isle. J xxx

Caring and compassion...the purrfect theme for the season...thanks for posting this!

All these places do sterling work for animals. My Christmas present to myself this year was sponsoring two kennel greyhounds who are too elderly and/or sick to be put up for adoption. They will live out their lives at Tailends, pampered to the last, and I'm proud to help them.

I always buy free range meat if it's available. I know most people have a nice vision of ducks growing to slaughter weight in a green meadow with a large pond to swim in, but I fear that's very much the exception. I have heard that their plight is every bit as bad as battery hens - another meat I never touch. I'm not a vegetarian (too many allergies and food sensitivities) but I try to buy responsibly because I don't see why an animal must live in misery to feed me.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you love and peace now and for the future! Hope you've settled into your not-so new home now? Sorry haven't been keeping up with blogs for a while due to too much work. Must redress that soon!

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
