Just was LT browsing and revisited your profile. Keep up your good work of advocacy of our fellow animals. I have recently retired from my 9-5 day job and having now more control over my time and want to get involved in advocacy in some useful way. So much needs to be done for there to be more understanding by our fellow humans -- what so often goes on is so heartbreaking. You are an inspiration!
Hey Kim, I just stumbled on your library- I'm vegan too (for 22 years now), and I have your book 'Speaking out for animals'!
I'm going to have a look in your library now!
Bye for now, Sarah.
I don't think I can even take credit for much of my kids' essential decency (must be the elevated midichlorian count). He's kinda always intuitively been a person of conscience.

Funny that I was recommended to Humphreys work through the shamelessly namedropping Van Morrison. I never knew much about his professional life and find this Zen/Judge dichotomy interesting. Cognitive dissonance or clarity of insight? Hard question. and what makes it so intriguing perhaps...
Hey Kim,

Thanks for the "interesting library" link. I enjoyed looking at your vegan website. I drastically changed my own diet recently due to health reasons and see the benefit, morally and otherwise.
Oh, and my son would probably be a fan of yours. The only kid I know at twelve, who can be described as a Goodall groupie, and a big champion of animals as well. He told us 2 years ago, out of the blue, he "wanted to be an ethologist." Just looked it up one day and then told us it described him. (And he's particularly grumpy as well...)

A most interesting profile, Kim. I commend your efforts on behalf of animals. I'm just a geezer who loves dogs. Two of my favorite books are Hal Borland's The Dog Who Came to Stay and George Pitcher's The Dogs Who Came to Stay. I recommend them both highly. - Tim
Kim, really like your profile,and wish you a lot of luck in your efforts for animals right,
