The Boo and the FountainWe each need other living beings — places we build and companions with which to enjoy them.  They bring a completeness often harder to find with other humans.

My wife communicates with her plants, and when she threatens a “severe pruning,” they listen (and certainly do I, but that’s another subject!)  I talk to and lie on the floor with my canine friends.  My feline dominates my life.  But the sum of these relationships is voluntary and non-judgmental and that is just wonderful and irreplaceable.

They will all come together in your own, unique and delightful way.
