Some of the greatest lessons I've learned have come from four-legged teachers. As a very young child, nobody bothered much with the fact that I saw animals as fellow beings with whom I could relate to and communicate with. This in spite of the fact that most of my thoughts were supposed to be centered on the mundane world.
From sharing secrets with a four-legged "brother" named Bonton to what I learned from military working dogs, the cat of a lady I was dating, on to my current group of nannies/ babysitters/ teachers, the learning process had been constant and rewarding. What I am exploring is some skills and knowledge that our ancient ancestors knew well, but our more recent ancestors have either forgotten or ignored.
And I am having the greatest fun, re-discovering this long-lost knowledge and putting it to use. And my four-foot "children" are enjoying it, too!
