Death of an Earthling

He had an unhappy childhood we could only guess the details of; bullied and half starved, he grew slowly and nervously with his welfare taken on by a succession of people, none of them up to coping with his needs, each handing him back to the rescue centre. Then he hit it lucky and found us. It took a while, but we were in it for good, there was no sending him back, he was part of our family and would remain with us forever no matter what. He eventually understood that.

He started to relax and smile. While not at first believing his luck, he gradually gained in confidence and happiness, and began to grin. He eventually realised that yes, he too could get up on a couch, or a bed, that he wouldn't be shouted at for doing so, but would be welcomed. He eventually came to accept he was part of our family.

He was a lovely person was Kees. A caring, compassionate, funny person who brightened our lives and gave us so much, helping us, in the way of dogs, to become better, more loving human beings. He graced us with seven years, and at the still young age of 10 [only 60 in human years], he passed away on 18th July 2009 from stage five lymphoma; a mass on his liver which no one had suspected and which appears not to have affected him until the very end.


It's been an emotional whirlewind of a week, starting with what appeared to be just a urine infection, which started to clear from antibiotics, but then he started going downhill, and had to be admitted to the vet's hospital ward, where he finally died, returning home only after he had passed away. He's left a hole in our lives, and his canine companion these seven years, Freya, is depressed still two days later, so they aren't so very different from us, despite what some monkey brains think.

He gradually gained silver highlights, making him look even more beautiful.


While we were with him before he left us, Concierto de Aranjuez, by Rodrigo, my favourite piece of music of all time, and a terribly emotional piece, was playing over the loudspeakers [thoughtfully provided to sooth the poor worried people who were there ill]. That's what is playing now in memory of Kees.. I want so badly to cuddle that boy again.

I'm told I should read The Unbearable Lightness of Being as it deals with this very subject, the way animals can liberate in us a higher being, with a capacity for love far exceeding what our normal simian hearts can manage. I shall do that.

Time to move to higher ground

The time to move to higher ground link will change from time to time, illustrating how this phrase is becoming more and more common and relevent; from New Orleans, to Fiji to East Anglia to Holland and not forgetting other countries which aren't low lying but which can suffer devastating floods from too much rain, even Native Americans are affected.
I moved to higher ground in 2000 when it was clear that flooding was becoming the norm and climate change was happening now.
On the journey west, we passed flooded fields right across the [UK] midlands, it felt almost apocalyptic.
Since then, floods have become common in the UK and many other countries.

When farmers get flooded out on a piece of ground repeatedly they know what to do – farmers are a very practical lot – they move to higher ground

Fadhel Al-Sa'd: The sun circles the Earth because it is smaller than the Earth, as is evident in Koranic verses... No verse in the Koran indicates that the Earth is round or that it rotates. Anything that has no indication in the Koran is false. [evidently, Galileo Galilei got it wrong]



The scenes from this war will create thousands maybe even millions of militants intent on inflicting damage on the only superpower. The war will be waged across America and in any American outpost and embassy. It will be brutal and messy and will continue for decades. Bush doesn't know what he has unleashed.
