I want to take the time to plug a book I recently read that focuses on the relationships between human and animals; more specifically the kinship and silent understanding we seem to share at times. The author Ruth Rudner gives multiple accounts of her experiences with various animals throughout her life, both wild and domestic. I was very touched by this book and even being the non-reader type I found that I was completely unable to put it down between stories. Reading this book made me reflect on my kinship with owls and why I feel drawn to them in the first place. I hope you give this one a shot.
