From the Hideout: Dogs, Puppies, Writers, and the Mantra for World Peace.

Yes, yes. I am still here, and I am still pondering over matters that I never spent a measly thought on, when I was out there. My sudden transformation into a global thinker could be attributed to the silence of this underground cell. Out there, the noise levels were deafening. Noise of every imaginable kind kept me away from any kind of serious thinking. Now, because I “can” actually think and analyze, I have been able to identify at least three different types of noises that drowned my genius.

  1. The noise of societal expectations from everyone around me.
  2. The noise of useless information being plied to me by the media.
  3. The noise made by those days, hours, and minutes that I ignored, because I never valued them enough.

So, if I shift my vantage point – my captivity is, in fact, the most liberating experience that I’ve ever had. I know that this won’t last, and that one of my readers will eventually find the location of this underground bunker and  I will be back in the noisy world. Until the day arrives, I intend to make the best of the situation.

So, here’s another tangible output of my thought-process.

Dogs and pups show us the way to world peace.

If we stopped hurting others, we could all co-exist peacefully. When we laugh at other people’s miseries, when we make fun of their shortcomings, we injure egos. The wounds of those who have strong emotional immunity, heal quickly; but those who are more emotional or who are extremely sensitive, their wounds fester. These emotional wounds bring about incidents that result in loss of life and property.

I’ll let the dogs talk:

What we can learn from dogs - How to ensure world peace - cartoons - dogs, pups, and pets - pet humor

 

This week has been rather good to me from the viewpoint of making friends. Among the many wonderful friends that I have found through Twitter and WordPress, here are 7:

  1. Lulu loves films, and if you do to – check out here cool posts on movies at: lululovesfilms.wordpress.com
  2. Then you have the Table Top Reader who write Micro-stories and poetry at: masterswami.wordpress.com

I had no idea that Tweeting could be such fun. It’s all about finding your kind of people. Two of my kind of people are dogs and writers. So here’s to them, in the right order, which obviously puts dogs first.

The Pups:

  1. @RumpyDog (Yes. Found him on Twitter – quite serendipitously, in fact.)
  2. @Happy_Pit (A truly happy Pit.)
  3. @steelergirltp43 (Alana is actually a human but she tweets the coolest pictures of the coolest dogs with the coolest captions!)

And now the writers:

  1. @Greymuir (Grey Muir – The mystery/fantasy writer)
  2. @jameswriter (James Paddock – The mystery/thriller writer)
  3. @vvbernard (Vanessa B. Bernard – YA writer/Illustrator)

Chapter 5 is coming up soon. You will find the answer to the question that you asked at the end of Chapter 1 –  What happens to Zoe?

From the Hideout: Dogs have Feelings too – So choose your words carefully!

I’ve been stuck here for about two weeks now. It’s been like I’ve been living the longest Alaskan night in Deadhorse, Alaska! I bet I am not going to be out of here in 54 nightly days…it might be a lot longer than that.

I had read somewhere that an empty mind is the devil’s workshop. Well, the devil has been working all the Alaskan night long, and producing content that doesn’t fit into any genre…nor does it fit into my head!

But let’s push the devilish thoughts aside and talk about feelings.

We always find people whining about how others hurt their feelings. Some people, young and old alike, think that everyone else needs to be careful with their words; everyone except they themselves. Then we also have people, more often the young ones, who think that elders need to give them space; but that the elders don’t need any space for themselves. You know the kind, don’t you?

And yet, not everyone complains. They too have feelings, they too feel hurt, but they don’t snap at us (thankfully,) they don’t get teary-eyed, they don’t throw stuff around, they don’t huff and puff and walk out of the door – they just let us be nasty.

If you have a dog or a cat, you know what I am talking about. You can recall, the way I can, those incidents when you did stuff that was totally uncalled for…and then later, without asking for any explanation, your furry friend was by your side again – not demanding apologies, not showing you the emotional bruises left behind by your rough treatment.

Here’s what would happen if your dog was human.

Cartoon pets (dogs and cats) - Dogs have feelings too - what would dogs do if they were human!

We are lucky that they are dogs…and cats…and ever so forgiving 🙂

 

If you’ve got a pet, there’s a good chance that you love him or her; even then, there are occasions when they exasperate you, and you shout at them. Reign your emotions in. They can’t fight you back – not on account of their hurt feelings.

Now go, hug your pet.

Additional Note: No. They aren’t “it.” Not for me. Not for most pet-owners and animal-lovers. The Grammarians must call it quits on this matter.
