A dog I rescued in rural Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco.  He had a severe injury to the eye and was found collapsed outside the riad I was staying in. He was severely malnourished and full of ticks and wounds. He survived.

Culture is a human-made idea, often a man-made idea. And it’s just that: an idea. An imaginary construct enough people have chosen to believe to make it real.  It can change at any time and it should. Culture is the external companion of our collective psychological, emotional, and spiritual evolutionary process.  Acts of violence, cruelty, and barbarism held with indifference or as sacred and reverent in the name of ‘culture’ are external symptoms of a willfully ignorant ego.
