I once bought a house in the country. The owner left two female goats for me. I named them, Petunia and Violet. We soon became very attached to each other for they were charming and affectionate. Would’t it be fun to have baby goats, I thought and asked my neighbor if I could use a male for stud. He delivered the frisky male and for the stud free, gave me the randy little goat, who promptly mounted the females and performed his job with great gusto.
I was thrilled to find, a few weeks later, four tiny baby goats nestled in the stacks of hay I had carefully piled for the two mothers to use for birthing nests. I spent hours playing with the little goats who grew with astounding rapidity. Within a couple of months, they were mimicking the father and mounting each other in sexual play. I laughed…

Do you know the language
of the rain, the song of
of the wind, call of the
ancient keeper of wisdom?
Can you speak to the stars,
call the star people by name?
Do you feel the connection to
all our Creator hath made?
If you have forgotten, never

nature, God, and ourselves, the

I am a person. Equal under the law to any other because I live in Canada.

That one person may not approve of marriage between same gender people doesn’t mean that I or other people like me should not be able to be married. Or have and raise children.
The social stigma against minorities, whether they are a sexual, ethnic or physical/mental abilities or anything else that sets any group of people as different from the norm or average mainstream of people.
Individuals are not groups – we are all just people. No better or worse than anyone else because of the group characteristics that identify us to the larger community or which inform our self-identity as people.
Understanding group dynamics should lead one towards a state of curious compassion. Not intolerance or fear or mistrust or hatred.
It is difficult enough for any person to manage in the world, given the state of persona; finances, economic participation, family status and inter-personal relationships.
No one needs to have their lives made harder because of other people’s small and selfish mindedness.
At the end of the day, it’s you that you have to face in the mirror.
Make sure you like and respect who you see – so govern yourself accordingly.
