"The Animal Song"

Thursday again (amazing how time flies by) and I am thinking about animals...






At first I thought I'd post pictures of my cat and dog but I already did in previous posts (I put the links here due to relevance on the subject).

Then I thought of how animals, and the way we treat them, can define who we are, as people and societies. Our character can be 'mapped' by the way we behave towards other living beings on this planet (a thing natural and sad if you consider how the situation is today). Brain or no brain, opposable thumb or not every living creature deserves a chance and if we want to call ourselves human beings we've got to take care of the 'chain' that holds us together!

Then a song came to mind..."do you know you make me cry....do you know you made me die...it's a lovely thing that we have, the animal, the animal instinct" (sing along if you like Cranberries :-).

I was going to post this song here but then it hit me...SAVAGE GARDEN!!

Happy Theme Thursday everyone...

Colette Amelia said...

I too wondered about how we treat animals.

Marianna said...

Hey all. I forgot to mention where that graphic is from, so I'll do it here. I found it in the 'encyclopedia britannica' site-blog...take a look if you want. I like the pic cause it had farm animals on it lol

We try not to talk about Savage Garden here in Australia.

Ronda Laveen said...

Auntie, aka cagny said...

Hullo Marianna,
Cool blog.
And it was fun to read those six facts about you.
I'm glad I came here.

Mrsupole said...

I enjoyed the video, I am not sure if I have ever heard that song and I do not think I have ever seen that movie.

The animal graphic was great. I loved the colors. Just something about them was great.

Thank you for the wonderful post.

Megan said...

I don't know Savage Garden, so that was nice, to hear new music (to me).

Indeed we have to take care of the chain! What a great way to put it!

Lenola Daily Photo said...

Oh Marianna fine argument that one!
We all on this fantastic white and blue sphere are kind of envelop of that mysterious obsession we use to call “life”. What we need is stop to think human as better than other forms, the facts don’t reveal it !

Lovely

Cinnamon said...

A very thoughtful post Marianna- so true what you say- we can learn so much from animals too- they are precious and need our care.

Marianna said...

Kris: I am curious now...why?! :-)

Ronda: Thanks and yes we do :-)

Auntie: Thank you for your kind words!

MrSupole: I know...I was thinking about the same thing when I saw the video. Have to look for the movie title lol

Megan: Thanks Megan. Glad I helped you learn a new song lol

Lenola Daily Photo: Thank you for the well phrased comment. You make a nice argument here :-)

Cinnamon: I agree there is so much to learn from animals :-)

Take care you all
Happy TT
