Circle of life type stuff
I discovered this song recently, and instantly fell in love with it. I didn't know why I fell in love with it, though, because I'm vegetarian.
After writing about being vegetarian earlier I realized why. The song is ultimately about respecting life. Yeah, in particular it's talking about the hunt, but really it seems that the theme of the song could be applied to any life -- including plants. So, it's as relevant to vegetarians as it is to carnivores.
Speaking of plants...
I have of course seen great trees taken down before, but not since I started talking to plants. There's a tree near my Aikido dojo which I haven't talked to before, but seemed old and wise, and today I discovered that it had been taken down. I was sad to see it gone.
