Ask the beasts and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you; ask the plants of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
–God to Job (Ch. 12)
Oh, if we would but learn to listen! To hear the stories our fellow creatures tell! We would occupy our own skin and muscle and bone more fully, inhabit our planet graciously, be present to the divine DNA in our fellow humans… in all that is.
