Back in black

This Friday, Ruby and I went back into the show ring; our first since getting her championship in October 2016. We braved car breakdowns, snowstorms, and sleepless nights. She looked fabulous and performed brilliantly. Here she is, relaxing like Cleopatra on her handmade tiger bed.

The Queen

She sleeps
In the fullness of knowing
is the queen.

She barks,
In the fullness of knowing
She is,
the queen.

The huntress of vermin,

She snaps
her mighty jaws.

She sleeps
In the fullness of knowing
She, is
the queen.

The missing piece…

“In Ireland, a Climate Emergency Measures Bill, which has already passed the first stage reading will be debated this month seeks, to ban any new explorations for oil, coal, and gas on Irish territory. It’s something that we need here, too, just for starters.

People are ready for this. Recent polling shows that
75% of Australians consider climate change a “global catastrophic risk”.
And 81% supported strong action even if it requires making considerable changes that impact on our current living standards.
Another survey in the US, UK, Canada and Australia found that 54% rated the risk of our way of life ending within the next 100 years at 50% or greater, and a quarter rated the risk of humans being wiped out at 50/50 or greater.
So it’s not that people don’t get it, emotionally and existentially. They do.

What is missing is brave leadership which is prepared to say that winning slowly is now the same as losing.” David Spratt
