a refreshing drink from a mountain stream. Black-robed women in India stride gracefully through a field with brass water jugs balanced on their heads. Whether they squeeze it out of a burlap bag, haul it home from a communal tap, or get it out of their kitchen faucet, people all around the world are unified by their common need for water. Barbara Kerley brings home this point simply and eloquently in this beautiful and educational picture book that combines striking National Geographic photographs with a poetic text to show how people in various cultures use and conserve the world's most vital resource.
For the past couple of weeks our dog Muffin has been sick. At first it seemed like he had eaten something bad, or drank puddle water and had a parasite. The vets gave us medicine for Giardia and we just kept waiting for him to get better. He acted pretty normal, still wanted to play. Once it was clear the medicine wasn’t helping they had him in for blood work, which raised some question about his liver. He began not wanting to eat, or eating very little even of his most favorite or off limit foods. They scheduled an ultrasound on Friday and from there he went downhill, and quickly. He didn’t eat for 3 days though we tried to hand feed him tiny bites of wet food…and on Monday could not drink water because his tongue became bruised and swollen. He would try, even with us holding the bowl and it was really heartbreaking to watch. It was hard to see him loosing weight, about 20 pounds in just two weeks. He was such a crazy happy dog all the time who loved food (loved trying to sneak in the trash) and loved people (so excited when anyone would come over) and in the end he wouldn’t even look up if someone came in. When we went to the vets on Monday they told us that the ultrasound showed a mass in his liver, a swollen gall bladder, and swollen spleen. She said that all signs were pointing to lymphoma, between the mass and all the other symptoms. During the autopsy she told us that he had cancer tumors all over, and most especially in his chest. While so hard to hear, it made me feel much better with our decision knowing he didn’t have to suffer through one more night. Telling the boys was the hardest part. This is the first animal our family has lost, and the boys were understandably devastated. While we all knew Muffin was sick, we had all still been hoping it was something he was going to pull out of. He was only 4 years old so it’s not something you prepare yourself for when your pup is still so young. Seeing the boys deal with it each in their own ways is hard. We all cried a lot and then B even said while sobbing “I can’t believe I was thinking about ice cream” my saddest moment as a parent yet, to know your 8 year old is feeling guilty for being a kid. Muffin was such a big part of our lives over the past four years. From when we first got him as a tiny little fuzzy puppy who would chew on our fingers with needle teeth. To the silly amazing dog he grew to be. He would lay in the downstairs hall way on his back and roll himself back and forth pushing his legs off the walls beside him. It was hilarious. He would push his nose under your arm (always while holding a full coffee cup) so you’d be forced to rub his head :) When we got out the hose to water the garden Muffin was in heaven..he’d run at the stream and try to bite it over and over until he was soaked. He was a big dog some times weighing as much as 75-80s pounds, but I swear he thought he was a tiny lap dog the way he’d climb in between us in bed, or crawl up on the couch to stuff his body into the smallest of places. He’d get on Tom’s lap and roll on his lap with his long legs all over :) He knew how to “sit” “shake”, and “where’s your bone?” and damn he was so proud when he’d find it. He would roll around on the ground and play with Biscuit all the time, and would even tolerate her licking his paws some times. He was born with the world’s shortest tail which you couldn’t even see so whenever he was happy his whole butt would wag, it was adorable :( Our family is so lucky for every second of those four years that we got to have him in our lives. While we are so sad for us–to have to let him go, we are so happy that he isn’t suffering any longer. We will love and miss him forever. We will each carry a giant muffin-sized hole in our hearts.day 249 > Breaking the Fast
Sitting by the road in Clementsport. I've been here before, a few times. I love huge, old railway bridges. Check the set to see some more shots. ------------ The afternoon of the fourth day. Midnight that night, I ate for the first time in four days. And it wasn't really hard, you know? Comparing how I feel at the moment to how I felt during that time, I felt much better when I wasn't eating. It's strange, but I think in our society, we think that going without food is absurd. After all, this is the Western World™, is it not? Why should we not constantly gorge ourselves? Not eat, you say? Poppycock! Then why are we so out of shape? Lack of food would be far better than malnutrition. With some of the stuff that people eat, it would be better for them not to eat at all. The nourishment and health you gain from a water fast can't be duplicated. Forget dieting, try fasting. It's the cold turkey approach. This is not the same as starving yourself. Starvation occurs somewhere between 50 to 100 days without food. Once you pass around about the 7 day mark, you actually lose the feeling of hunger. Not only that, weakness disappears. This will continue until the end of a complete fast (about 40 days). During this time, other things go away too. You lose alot of negative emotions, especially strong sexual lust. Which is something I noticed, just in four days. How it effects your body is interesting too. I read a doctor's report on a patient who underwent a complete fast, and he listed the percentages of each part of his body that was lost. It read as such: Body Fat: 97% Muscle: 37% Brain Mass: 0% As your body gets healthier, your mind gets clearer. Obviously, you get thinner. But it's not about trying and trying to lose weight. You just drink water, skip food, and do your daily stuff. If this is about dieting, of course, it all means nothing if you eat the same after the fast as you did before. Whatever, though. I'm not some freakin' health nut who's going to walk the world peddling his philosophy. I did this for spiritual reasons, and that was it, really.
