What Direction Now? Life at the intersection…

My Herd


Today’s post is dedicated to my family.

Even without giant horns on their heads, I know they would jump in to save me from the crocs and lions of life, with my mom and my Bean leading the way. (I just hope they would come back for me a little sooner before I got too terribly chewed up…)

Ask Bean. I come from a really large herd and we’re really powerful when we all come together and I love and appreciate them very much, no matter how far away from each other we may find ourselves.

{Editor’s note: This starts off pretty brutal, but stick with it until the end. It’s definitely worth it!}

{Second editor’s note: Go herbivores!}
