Wild animals are considered wild because they don’t have the same manners as people. They eat their meat raw. (Wild!) They eat their fruit and vegies unwashed. (Wild!) If they move into your neighborhood (or you into theirs), there could be a major culture clash. If they look huggable, with cuddly fur and soft brown eyes, you may lean toward supporting the wild ones. But if they want to eat you, you may lean away. Mountain lions look huggable, but on the other hand … If you have a deep appreciation for mountain lions, choosing which culture to support in such a clash may not be easy. A story of making such a choice is told in Doing the Right Thing, listed in the section Stories of Life and Love.
The pair of eyes above is a detail of a mountain lion drawing by Suzanne L. Baird. Mountain lions have cuddly fur and soft brown eyes. And they are wild.
This website is about my published stories. As you can see, I have sorted them into three groups: Stories About Friends, Stories Just for Fun, and Stories of Life and Love. These stories are the building blocks of the site. So I guess that means that right now this site is under construction. Ideally, it will always be under construction, because I will be adding stories from time to time. So come back to visit every so often and check out my building skills.
