Today, I made a quick trip to the liquor store, and noticed a spider was hanging on for dear life to a web thread attached to the mirror on the side of my car's body. It was a life or death experience for that spider. The spider survived the trip, and I was pleased with the result. It survived.
My compassion now extends beyond the animal kingdom. I see plants are just as worthy of our compassion as animals. I used to chop down trees with a chainsaw, with not a tiny bit of guilt. Now, I just don't think I could end the life of a magnificent plant such as a tree in such a violent manner.
I'm just too damn compassionate for this brutal world. I'm hiding out to try to get through my final years without participating in the nasty stuff.
