ABC Wednesday: F on the Fly
It's Fortunate that I'd Finished most of today's ABC Wednesday post last week when I'd had the time or I'd be MIA this round, unless I just posted a photo of real estate For sale signs (selling and trying to Find a new house is giving us Fits!), or a self-portrait of BW and me for Frazzled, Flummoxed, Frustrated, Flustered, Fatigued, Fretful and Fried (and a Famous F word that's even more Fitting but not suitable For a Family-Friendly blog! LOL) But thanks to my Foresight last week, instead of having something Frightful like that Foisted upon you, you can look at these Four Fine scenes instead...
Fittingly, she hangs at the bottom of our garden :-)

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
