GOT ultraviolence

So I am watching Game of Thrones too
The Battle of the Bastards...
and then the violence, ultra violence
heart races and beats...

and yes the story is excellent, the acting,
the writing, the production, the scenes...

but we are highly entertained with ultra violence
and this is what humanity watches every day
how it sieves into our lives?
the madness the stress the blood
the feelings the revenge the darkness
the primitive darkness

oh light come back in
let me hope again breath!

Merciful 2019

I wish you all a 2019 full of Mercy!
Have mercy for others, for all the sick and hurt humans and animals, and for yourself.
Try a peaceful approach to life, even to your enemies.
Try not to kill innocent beings for your food or clothing.
Be peaceful and kind, love is all we got.
Live vegan.
"The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes."
~Portia in William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice.

The last selfie of 2018!

Age and activism

Please read this article by talented and passionate Marla Rose. My personal note: I think a lot of us have the idea of an activist being a young, unhappy, or somehow unadapted person to society, the typical young hippies, and troublemakers. I grew up as a “regular," content middle class person, but as I aged and discovered many of the social injustices that I was not aware of, like animal agriculture; I found out that middle-aged people like me, working professionals, homemakers, specialists, and plenty of ‘regular” every-day people who are over 40 years old are eager to change the world. I became a vegan for justice for animals and our planet at age 44, and an animal rights activist at age 45.

Vegan outreach at colleges

Last Tuesday I spent some hours doing
Vegan Outreach at San Diego City College.
VO has a program, Adopt a College, to leaflet colleges since young people are more concerned about animals, their suffering, about being healthier too and also about the future of our planet (animal agriculture is one of the top reasons for global warming).
Vegan Outreach also a new program 10 weeks to Vegan, where people are helped to ditch an animal product each week, please enroll and start saving animals too!
It is a joy to volunteer for Vegan Outreach to help animals and our planet while educating younger generations.

Student who wants to help animals by going vegan, she tried

Racism, Sexism, & Speciesism

#Racism#Sexism, & #Speciesism come from a dark place that only exists in the #human heart. Racism, Sexism, & Speciesism are based on the assumption of human superiority & lead to exploitation, disrespect, inequality, and even murder. Respect others who are different, look different, or belong to other species, sex, or race. Have hooves? Brown skin? Habla español? We all deserve the same treatment on this planet, animals, races, sexes, choice of sexes, love = respect. Live and let live!

PBS Nature

Nature | PBS is one of my favorite TV shows ever! This episode on Animal Reunions with the humans who took care of them will bring tears of joy.
Animals are amazing creatures, much more "civilized" than humans; they are all heart & emotion. We must learn from animals and we must protect them, not eat them, wear them and abuse them. Please be kind and respectful of all animals!
You can watch the entire episode here:

Moby's Porcelain gets Pawpproved by Literary Gato

Herr Gato's love for literature emerges, or in this case,
rests again. His known love for books favors now
the open, funny, and truly wonderful Moby's memoir
Moby, the electronic musician, who I love and respect
not only for his music but for his vegan life, and mostly
because he is just a really really good human being.
One of my first electronic music albums was Moby's Ambient.
I still have my CD! All beat up, I exchanged it in Mexico City
at El Museo del Chopo, where Mexican goth kids used to NOT
buy music but exchange it. I still play it a lot.
Follow Herr Gato's recommendation and read Moby's Porcelain.
And get ALL his albums, you will smile, knowing that
there is people like Moby out there.

Check this link for other books favored by the Literary Gato
Herr Gato loves Moby's book, because he knows Moby truly loves animals

After the 1st photo, he curled even more over Moby's book
