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.
