alive again today

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
We are still fundraising to get my daughter a service dog. Her 3rd birthday is in 2 1/2 weeks, and instead of a party/gifts, we are asking for donations. If you have even just $5 to spare, we would be so grateful. She has really been struggling lately so we are trying to raise as much as possible. 
If anyone has a blog and would like to feature her (whether its just a link or you would like me to do a write up), please message me. We don’t really have the money to do a “real” fundraiser in person, but if anyone else has any ideas, please let me know! We are running out of resources to get donations :(

Thank you so much everyone <3

This hit me hard. As does everything that comes out of this disgusting place.

To the ninety eight dolphins that were brutally murdered I say, rest in peace.
You are in a much better place now than on this cruel planet.
I’m sorry your life came to a horrendous end.
I love you all. I really do.

TODAY WAS AWFUL

Awful, unbearable, heartbreaking, unfair, stupid — all words to try to adequately explain today’s slaughter of 98 Pantropical spotted dolphins.

We spotted the lineup of banger boats early this morning.  I was sure they were going to put a lot of effort into this drive, knowing that a few days ago they lost so many Pacific white-sided dolphins.  Unfortunately I was not wrong.  I could do an entire blog today of distasteful words that describe how I feel about what happened in Taiji.

As their season comes to an early end this week, I fear no dolphin will be spared in Japanese waters.  The numbers are down from previous years and from the quota.   So much so, that babies are back on the menu.  Today as I watched the pod being pushed into the Cove, I could see many juvenile dolphins.  After splitting the pod into two groups, the hunters began the slaughter.  The first wave was driven, pushed, and in a few instances tail roped and dragged under the tarps.  After about 15 minuets the second group was just as brutally corralled under the tarps.

I noticed one swim back out from under the tarp, as it was partially paralyzed.  It could only swim in one direction.  The hunters just allowed it to swim out in front of the tarps for about 5-10 minutes.  Once there was no fight left, he was tail wrapped and pulled back under.

Within the hour, the Cove was red again.  The blood of 98 dolphins filled the killing Cove.

Normally, the “Town of Taiji representatives” stare into the Cove as it is happening, but today, once the blood began to flow, they all backed away from the cliff and just looked at us.  Normally they smile and joke back and forth with each other, but not today.  Today they witnessed as we did the brutal disregard for life that these 26 hunters have.  Today they all witnessed how no care is taken for a “humane” end to these dolphins’ lives, but rather an intentional barbaric slaughter.   I suspect tonight at the diner table there will not be any talk of a great, rewarding day at work.

Tomorrow we will see them all again, but not without knowing it could be seen in their faces: this is wrong!

MOTIVATION: you clear the time, yoga does the rest.

Michelle Williams is opening a yoga center that caters specifically to single mothers. The Blue Valentine star has been raising daughter Matilda, 5, on her own since the death of boyfriend Heath Ledger in 2008 and she credits yoga with helping her cope with the tragedy.
“Yoga gave me relief like nothing else; it made be a better person and a better mother,” the actress said. “I could come back to my daughter anew. And then I started to think about how expensive it is to get a babysitter to take a yoga class, which makes it out of reach for so many women.”
The Yoga for Single Moms Project is now launching a pilot program in Boston, Massachusetts.
“The idea behind the program is that if you can clear the time, we do the rest,” Michelle said. “It provides childcare while the mom is in the yoga class, and it’s all free.”
