EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: Feeding the Fire
Rilke's fear of dogs had less to do with any harm they might inflict
Than with the sad look in their eyes
Expressing a need for love he felt he couldn't meet.
And so he looked away from them.
He was too busy for such obligations,
Waiting instead for angels to speak,
Looking up at heaven with an expression
They couldn't help responding to
Try as they might to avoid his gaze.
-- Jeffrey Harrison, "Feeding the Fire"
POSTED ON FLIKY AUGUST 31:
If anyone reading this has friends in louisiana that were hit by katrina and have pets, please pass this post on to them if they are in need of housing and shelter for their pets:
I don't have time to spend on the internet finding and learning how to post right now. Please just let all members know that we have opened a pet shelter at Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette, right next to the Cajundome. Evacuees may bring their pets their for housing. We have PLENTY of food, water, crates, cages, bedding and newspaper. BUT the owners are responsible for feeding, watering, walking and medicating
their own pets.
Interested parties may call Lafayette Parish Animal Control at 337-291-5644 for more information.
Also many area vets are accepting animals right now, until they fill up. Get the Yellow Pages out!
Please help me to get this word out. I've been working non-stop! THANKS!
