The dog arrived in quite a state. Bleeding, limping, mangy. But it’s been about two weeks, and already you can see the difference a little consistent love and attention makes.
He doesn’t limp. His coat’s shiny. He’s starting to gain weight. And the once dull body seems suddenly so full of life, so eager to play! Hell, he even barks sometimes.
The night before last, he killed a snake. Brought the tiny carcass to the door so full of pride. We received the offering with mixed feelings.
And just yesterday, he began to live up to his name of Gopal—yea, that’s right, he chased a cow! He spotted it in the distance, rose to his feet, and began his pursuit all by himself. Ok ok, so to get him to take the next step I had to run too—but this time instead of Gopal chasing me chasing a cow, he took the middle slot. Woohoo!
Now if only he’d learn to sit…

- Nature is our best teacher
- we are the world, we are the ones to make a brighter day!..
- Natural farming, food forest
- We dig our grave with our teeth
- Freedom of expression is my birth right
- Freedom of speech comes with great responsibility
- I become what I see in myself. All that thought suggests to me, I can do; All that thought reveals to me, I can become. This should be man’s unshakeable faith in himself, because God dwells in him.
