Dorothy Parshall BS: It's like losing an old friend... (39) RE: BS: It's like losing an old friend... 09 Sep 19

Nope, the world is not the same. And we humans do not like changes - unless we are in control and believe they are for the better. Most animals feel the same way. The Leopard frogs in the back yard appreciate the longer grass and just hop out of my way. The cross-the-road neighbour came over and mowed our front lawn while we had lunch on Sunday! Went back outside - Surprise! Guess he likes it shorter! I was glad I had put a tomato cage around the wee oak I want to move to the back yard! And very glad he stuck to the front!

I basically moved back to Bancroft, ON because of a certain restaurant; now it is closed and there is no place like it!

But, a nearby town/village has a "new" bakery that is incredible! There is no bakery like it anywhere that I have been. Change!

When I first drove back from Montreal to Bancroft, I delighted in that which had not changed. And assessed my feelings about that which has. Sometimes it makes an opening for something different/better?

Losing a fav human or other animal can be shattering; so can losing a fav hangout. Actually, the animals continue to live within us but losing a hangout can shatter our social network, our sense of being part of a community. We have to rebuild... That may not be easy.

Sheesh! would it be terrible to say that losing one individual is not generally as hard as losing a whole sense of community, of belonging to a viable group. Then I think of all those persons who have had to leave homelands, lost most of their family, friends,...

Wildlife rehabbers are supposed to return rescued animals to the vicinity where they were found - because that's where their friends and family are. We know it is important to wild animals, what about human animals?

Sorry, I quit. This is too heavy.
