One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is meeting new people. There are so many interesting and talented people here in the Internet tubes.
Shortly after posting the 'Elephant In the Room' I got an e-mail from a lovely person named Robert. He linked me to a song he had written and recorded about his feelings while visiting a zoo. He urged me to keep up the good work.
I loved the song. I told Robert it had a doo wop 50s quality to it and was rewarded by his saying I had a good ear. I usually have a terrible time describing music beyond love it/hate it so that made me feel good.
Robert also shared with me a poem he wrote called 'Dog' - it's sad and hopeful, heartbreaking yet comforting.

Thanks Robert for reaching out to encourage me to continue my work for animals and thank you for sharing your words and music.
