    Whenever Possible ...

    I will try to avoid killing creatures whenever possible. I usually catch spiders in a cup or glass before putting them out of the window, I just couldn't squish them.  I get rid of wasps by shouting at them and telling them to go away, which mostly works.  Flapping at them and...

    Recently I came back from Alabama. I was shocked at how many people love to hunt. The men, the women, the kids.People take their kids out of school to go hunting. I agree that you should bond with your children. I do not believe in killing - I believe in living.

    Not Even Bugs..

    I know that may seem oversensitive..but I actually feel extremely guilty when I kill bugs.  I do it at times (flies annoy the hell out of me, and super-fast spiders running around the house freak me out- not to mention the fact that they could be poisonous), but I'll try to...

    A43 Road-kill Driving through death. Miles of macabre crimes. Blistering red pepperonis and the angry black knives jutting from tacky tarmacadam; a Rorschach inkblot drawn by a madman. Death begets death as the carrion eaters gather, all hungry hormones, instinct and saliva...

    The Fly And The Butterfly

    Starting at a very young age, I have had a soft heart for animals and insects. Spiders creep me out, but I don't kill them if I find them crawling up a wall in the house...I put my fears aside and scoop them up with a tissue and a cup and toss them out the door. I was maybe 5...

    Makes Me Feel Bad..

    I'm not a Vegan, because nutrition is important to me, and I grew up on a farm where self sufficiency was part in parcel with day to day life.. Having said that,  I can't kill anything.  And I buy from local organic/free range farmers (fruit, meat and veg, etc...

    Maybe it's a mental disorder, I don't know, but I have a particular Cup. Maybe everyone does. Mine looks like someone made it for strong coffee; it's small, thin, tall, brown with some sweetly amateurish circle design. I've no idea where it came from but I like it for drinking my...
