I am letting this photograph and some quotes speak for me today.
“Animals, like us, are living souls. They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer. They know the peaks and chasms of being.”
― Gary Kowalski, The Souls of Animals
“Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored”
― Alice Walker
“What sets humans apart from animals is that we have to walk around saying how smart we are, and animals just live their lives.”
― Chanctetinyea J.J. Ouellette
“Lacking a shared language, emotions are perhaps our most effective means of cross-species communication. We can share our emotions, we can understand the language of feelings, and that's why we form deep and enduring social bonds with many other beings. Emotions are the glue that binds.”
― Marc Bekoff, The Emotional Lives of Animals: A Leading Scientist Explores Animal Joy, Sorrow, and Empathy and Why They Matter
What do you think the crow and the squirrel are saying to each other?
