on my neighborhood nextdoor site – written by a kind neighbor:
“we found a raccoon in our driveway that looks sad and is not moving.
is there anything we can do about it?”
after a medical check and care if needed
, a warm meal of comfort food
and a cheesy comedy viewing
shared with a happy raccoon.
this often works for me.
“let us fill our hearts with our own compassion –
towards ourselves and towards all living beings.”
