Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

I want to be an Ant

When I look at the world today I see too many Dung Beetles moving "dung".  Just smooth over all the bad stuff or better yet, move it somewhere else to become someone else's problem.  My question is how does this help anyone or how does it fix the dung from not happening.  We live in a dung world with leaders that are dung beetles.

I want to live in an Ant world.  Ants help each other always!  When there is work to be done they share the load and accomplish the impossible.  When there is fighting to be done they attack together, a unified micro pit-bull.

Which world do you prefer?

I learned a lot about dung beetles when I wrote DEAR WANDERING WILDEBEEST... if not for them, our world would be overrun with dung! They are cleaner-uppers, and their work allows new grass (or whatever) to grow... we need both ants AND dung beetles, me thinks... xo
