humble vegan ambassador

Here is the farmer cooking us a delightful vegan meal of tofu, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, carrots and quinoa in a sesame tamari sauce.  Such a tasty vacation at Netarts Bay, Oregon.  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  We are attending a traditional bird-consuming Thanksgiving at a relative’s house and I am preparing myself as a humble vegan ambassador.  I am blessing the turkey silently and asking for forgiveness, not just for a gruesome slaughter, but for forcing her into a concentration camp, a life impossibly suited to healthy turkey family and community.  Then a silent prayer for us human animals, asking that all of our hearts be restored to our natural state of joy, love, compassion and wisdom.  May we open our eyes, open our hearts and re-connect with ALL of life, remembering there is only ONE awareness living in myriad physical forms.

revolution of one

IMG_7809 - Copy.small  IMG_7807 - Copy.small  IMG_7805 - Copy.small

When we cultivate mindful awareness of the consequences of our food choices and conscientiously adopt a plant-based way of eating, refusing to participate in the domination of animals and the dulling of awareness this requires, we make a profound statement that both flows from and reinforces our ability to make connections.  We become a force of sensitivity, healing, and compassion. We become a revolution of one, contributing to the foundation of a new world with every meal we eat. As we share our ideas with others, we promote what may be the most uplifting and healing revolution our culture has ever experienced.”    ~ Dr. Will Tuttle

Clover the chicken

Clover resting

Clover was hatched as a classroom experiment. She is a meat bird.  Think Foster Farms.  That means she was bred too large for her legs and must rest often. She was also bred with a four-year life span. I met Clover at Dekum Street Doorway and instantly fell in love with her.  She was initially depressed but really came into herself. She is now curious, joyful and exploratory.  She is a lucky bird to be able to live out the rest of her days in safety and contentment.
