Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way
But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day
I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
[Joni Mitchell – Both Sides now]
My family's been atheistic for several generations. Although or maybe because I have no connection to faith, I am quite spiritual. And I am incredibly fond of being in churches.
This special devotional atmosphere; this peace and quiet, that special air, the solemn light... Especially in times that are uneasy and troubled I use to take my time and enter a church. Not, when Mass is celebrated. Rather when there's no one else but me and my weary head and my heavy thoughts. Just sitting there and listening the peaceful stillness eases my soul!
P.S.: There are no words to express how much this song means to me!
Нельзя убивать!! Почему я не могу вообразить, что можно убить медведя, мирно живущего в лесу... или где угодно, а они делают это из удовольствия. Охотники- это больные страшным психическим расстройством особи. Repost from @naturemama77 @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost PLEASE SIGN PETITION TO STOP THIS MADNESS. LINK ➡️ @a_lallie_new
‘Harvested’ is a stupid word. 243 bears have been MURDERED for sport 🐻💔 .
They were minding their own business in the woods, which is their habitat, before trespassing human cowards dressed up as trees, shot arrows into their bodies for fun. Last year hunters killed over 600 bears including beloved disabled bear #PedalsTheBear and this year they’ve killed over 200 more. RIP bears 😢 .
To those who have signed the petition against the #NJBearHunt in my bio, thank you. To those who haven’t please do as the first #BowHunting segment of this hunt has closed but in December, the second shotgun segment will begin.
Also if you live in New Jersey, please know that thousands of bears are being killed because of Governor #ChrisChristie whereas if you vote for #PhilMurphy to succeed him, he has promised to enforce Pedals Law, which would ban bear hunting for five years while implementing a non-lethal bear management program.
You’ll probably recognise the man being arrested here as I post about him arbitrarily getting arrested every year. His name is Bill Crain, a peaceful, compassionate 73 year old college professor from New York. Last winter he was thrown in jail for a week.
He never does anything wrong. He just sends the truthful message that ‘Mother Nature Is Crying’ yet gets arrested for civil disobedience while the hunters get protected and rewarded for killing bears. Remember legality is a construct of the powerful, not of the righteous. We must never be silent.
