Day 231 August 29

A few days ago, my husband and I passed a small farm where a pig and goats shared a gated area.  I hadn't realized that pigs and goats could share a place.  I find that enlightening ... and wonderful.  Pigs and goats don't seem to have a lot in common; yet, there they were, getting along, perhaps even making friends with each other.

It started me wondering why we humans find it so difficult to get along.  Whether it is a celebrity divorce, a court case with one party suing the other, or the larger landscape of world conflicts, where human beings perform atrocities against each other, the media is filled with examples of people who don't get along.

I apologize if this sounds facetious, comparing pigs and goats to people.  That is not my intent. But if pigs and goats can find common ground, perhaps we can, too.

Joy for today:  learning from pigs and goats.
