A Brief Moment of Zen(o)… and Aurelius

I think we could all use a little sleeping pets therapy right about now

Little Humans

I love my pets, don’t get me wrong. Anyone who’s spent even a little bit of time around here knows Zeno and Aurelius are a huge part of my life. And I love and respect animal adoption centers and those who run them and support them. But every time I see a post on Conspiracy Theory Central, aka facebook, with a cute puppy or kitten in need of a human to love them, and I see a lot of them — that’s a good thing — I can’t help but wonder how many little humans are out there in need of the same…


While technically no longer referred to as orphans, The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption pegs the number of children in U.S. foster care at a staggering 443,000, more than 123,000 of whom are considered to be waiting children available for adoption.

And Especially A Time To Sleep…

A Time To Sleep

Ecclesiastes 3

1   To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2   A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3   A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4   A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5   A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6   A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7   A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8   A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.
