I sometimes take it for granted that my wife talks to donkeys, but she does, almost every day, and I believe they talk back. I commune with donkeys but don't usually communicate with them in this way. What are they saying? I don't know. I could have fun with it, but I believe animals respond to emotions in people, and people whose emotions are strong and open – that would be my former girlfriend – connect with domesticated animals, and others as well. Maria is an animal whisperer, I see that and the photos show that. It is powerful and affecting. It is healing two, both ways I think. I am putting together a Bedlam Farm Journal video for Sunday or later today on Simon's weekend: learned some important lessons this week.
