An open mind

Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind.

  1. Yes, yes, yes!

  2. Ellie - I saw your comment over on - I'm a regular over on . . .

    You commented that Oklahoma is not represented by petsofhomeless.

    I'm also in Tulsa, though not for a lot longer, unfortunately.

    I know there are multiple places in the area that do offer assistance to displaced people's pets - for instance, the Catnip Cottage can take in a kitty or two for women who are sheltered in the DVIS system (who aren't able to keep their kitties in the shelter). Catnip Cottage is affiliated with StreetCats, and I think there's a dog version of StreetCats. That might be a place to start?

    Can I help?


  3. Oh... find me at
