Shelley, girl ...you's good with words!

People look at me as a vegan and conclude that since I stepped on a snail or because the vegetables I eat resulted in a tractor death for a squirrel somewhere in Paraguay that somehow vegans are hypocrites, which of course they’re not since perfection is an unattainable goal and is something to be driven towards, never actually achieved.

The difference between you and the vegan standing next to you is that while you’re both going to step on a bug tomorrow, they’ve decided to dedicate their lives to do as little harm as possible, completely independent from what you do. So in no way does the protozoan life form they step on negate your responsibility for the lamb you’re paying a stranger to cut tomorrow. And falling 1% short of an unattainable goal is really good when you’re standing next to someone who won’t even try.

~ Shelley Williams




I think we have all gone through something like this?? even if it isnt about veganism, any time you try to do something out of the ordinary that is good, you can get slammed. 

how is everyones summer??..( i just wrote that but remembered that its still cold in lots of places) (ill just kick myself for you )

'Perfection is unattainable' is good to remember.

I think it is still spring here, but feels like summer. By which I mean, it's too hot to be outside for more than a few minutes.

Try to blog more often. Bring us up to date on Piggy & Lilly.

Does your blog have a contact page? I'm having problems locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an e-mail.
I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

I don't think I've ever stepped on a snail! That sounds terrible! I'm pretty sure I did kill some fire ants as I desperately tried wiping them off my horribly bitten feet the other night; it was an awful attack. Mean ol things. Happy summer! I wish I looked as cute as you in a bikini.

I'm quite afraid of stepping on a snail and then slipping and busting my head open.

By the way, it's been fall now since your last post :P

It has been awhile since you've published a new post. Hope all's OK with you!
