I don’t miss anything being vegan.
It’s not mine to miss.
I didn’t give up anything.
It wasn’t mine to give up.
I just stopped, and then, I gained.
Gained some self respect that I was no longer participating in, enabling and funding exploitation, use and murder of wonderful beings.
Because you truly can’t say you are against cruelty and murder while funding it. You can’t say you are an animal lover. Of ALL animals.
Not with a straight face and in truth you can’t.
I was a thief. A thief who stole precious things from the most vulnerable. I was party to murder.
I was a terrible person. I’m so very sorry from the bottom of my heart. I can’t undo all the pain and bad things I did. But I can try to atone by refusing to continue for one second longer. To live my life honestly. When you know better, you do better, otherwise things just stay the same. Please, take a minute today to truly look at yourself and ask why you would continue living like this when we can live without it. I will help you if you need it. Please. I beg you. Just stop. The ability to do so is in us all. It’s never too late.

Some people are so broken,
They get mad at you for being whole.

We are as much strangers in nature, as we are aliens from God. We do not understand the notes of the birds. The fox and the deer run away from us; the bear and tiger rend us. We do not know the uses of more than a few plants, as corn and the apple, the potato and the vine.
— Nature, Ralph Waldo Emerson (via vegan-veins)

Fairy rings  occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.

Lighted Fairy Woodhouses

Boston-based freelance artist Daniel Barreto combined houses with trees in a series of lovely photo manipulations titled Woodhouses. Barreto photographed parts of houses around Boston, and superimposed them onto images of tree trunks that he had taken in New Hampshire. The charming Woodhouses were even animated for effect, and resemble fairy’s houses in an enchanted forest. 

eeeeeee!
