Reminder: Sign Petition

Sign: http://www.change.org/petitions/seaworld-inc-humanely-release-the-orca-whale-known-as-tilikum-to-a-seapen-for-rehab

Our message is simple: keeping a 12,000+ pound Orca whale in a pool, (that is less than a fraction of 1% of his natural habitat,) is simply illogical. To use a living, breathing, self-aware and extremely intelligent sentient being as a sperm bank in a forced captive breeding program, and as a part-time splash-machine for the enjoyment of the paying public is, considered by many, simply appalling. In captivity, Orcas cannot use their echolocation, as the sound waves will actually bounce off the tank’s concrete sides and literally deafen the animal. (In some cases the animal has literally gone insane). Tanks are sanitized with chlorine, copper sulfate, and other harsh chemicals that irritate the dolphins and whales’ eyes, causing many to swim with their eyes closed. In the wild, male Orca whales can live to be 50-60+ and wild female Orcas have lived to be over 90. In captivity, most whales and dolphins do not live to adulthood, many die in their teens.

When I’m sad, my cat Simba always gives me warmth, makes me smile and loves me unconditionally. It is with nature I find purity, sensitivity and love which gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes. I want to have all the animals in the world I want see them, touch them, and feel them, that’s where I want to live. In between a pack of lions ❤️ I want to run with elephants, roll around with gorillas, swim with the great whale, that’s where I belong… ❤️

I feel like I’m not fully expressing myself. I feel so distant from myself, from my emotions, clouded by illusionary thoughts, clouded by an image that is not me. I need to set free. I feel overwhelmed, tears come out of my eyes so smoothly making way to anything. I’m so fragile so in need. In need of myself since I’m not providing for me. I keep letting everything go, letting myself go, losing myself. I hate it.

Chicken and Wild Rice with fried Apple…

DSC_0750

I completely made this recipe up as I went along (there wasn’t much ingredients at home). I fried a white onion and a red onion in olive oil until soft and almost clear in colour then I rubbed the chicken in a Moroccan infusion of spices called Ras El Hanout and finally added it to the onions. As the chicken was turning white, I seasoned it with black pepper and salt. Meanwhile, I made a blend of a little bit of chocolate powder and brown sugar mixed with a bit of boiling water and added it to the chicken (I wanted to add vanilla too to add to the experimental aspects but I couldn’t find it – maybe next time). So far, the chicken was very juicy which was exactly what I want and then I put it in the oven until it fully cooked. I already had the wild rice cooked and I fried a diced apple in butter until golden. Finally, I added all the ingredients together on the plate making it look colourful and pretty (and of course I added greens!)
