This post keeps going around on Facebook and friends post or tag me in it because they know I am passionate about elephants and rhinos.

Unfortunately this is neither accurate, nor the answer to end the horrific decimation of these two valuable and important species.

Rhino horns aren’t ivory, they are keratin. There is a grain of truth to the IDEA BEHIND rhino story but... Read more of this blog post »

The Old Garden by Hwang Sok-yong
“Even if you are alive somewhere, the absence of the other person who used to be there beside you obliterates your presence. Everything in the room, even the stars in the sky, can disappear in a second, changing one scene for another, just like in a dream.”
Hwang Sok-yong

Sever by Lauren DeStefano
“I know she isn’t coming back, but I still think that she will. Nothing can make that go away. We figure out what death means when we’re born, practically, and we live our whole lives in some kind of weird denial about it.”

A Mennonite pastor whom I friended on Twitter mailed me this book following the death of my brother. It was a very sweet thing to do, and I tried dearly to read this book with an open mind, but ultimately it just ticked me off. I'm more of a believer ...more

Kristin O'Donnell Tubb
“Whoever said that loss gets easier with time was a liar. Here's what really happens: The spaces between the times you miss them grow longer. Then, when you do remember to miss them again, it's still with a stabbing pain to the heart. And you have guilt. Guilt because it's been too long since you missed them last.”
Kristin O'Donnell Tubb, The 13th Sign

Cheryl Strayed
“If, as a culture, we don’t bear witness to grief, the burden of loss is placed entirely upon the bereaved, while the rest of us avert our eyes and wait for those in mourning to stop being sad, to let go, to move on, to cheer up. And if they don’t — if they have loved too deeply, if they do wake each morning thinking, I cannot continue to live — well, then we pathologize their pain; we call their suffering a disease.
We do not help them: we tell them that they need to get help.”
Cheryl Strayed

Mark Twain
“I was standing in our dining-room thinking of nothing in particular, when a cablegram was put into my hand. It said, 'Susy was peacefully released today.'
It is one of the mysteries of our nature that a man, all unprepared, can receive a thunder-stroke like that and live.”
Mark Twain

Lauren DeStefano
“I know she isn’t coming back, but I still think that she will. Nothing can make that go away. We figure out what death means when we’re born, practically, and we live our whole lives in some kind of weird denial about it.”
Lauren DeStefano, Sever

“Even if you are alive somewhere, the absence of the other person who used to be there beside you obliterates your presence. Everything in the room, even the stars in the sky, can disappear in a second, changing one scene for another, just like in a dream.”
