So I’m sitting here obsessing how I spaced out on this event and haven’t written anything and then decided to just shut up — I’m talking to you, oh accusatory voices in my head — and write something. This is, after all, a guilt-free zone and the point of this day is to raise awareness for animal issues you care about, not to beat yourself up.
Looking back on my posts for the past year or so, I realize two causes keep cropping up: car safety and greyhound rescue. In fact, they’re connected because it was a car accident by a responsible greyhound owner — she was rear-ended at high speed by an irresponsible car thief — that resulted in the formation of the Beading Divas, a group of Tucson greyhound owners whose bracelets help support a number of animal causes. I know several of the divas — see some pictures of a celebration I took part in here — but I’m particularly friendly with Karyn Zoldan, a board member of Grey2K USA who never lets the greyhounds down.
Now go add yourself to the Be the Change for Animals website.
Then get back to work. Those nagging internal voices won’t stay shut up indefinitely.
