Bear with me because I feel a rant coming on.
I’ve been a Pinterest member for ages now.
Since back when you had to APPLY to be a member.
It’s been a great way to organize the things I come across on the internet.
And I’ve used it a great deal for collecting Burning Man ideas – on fashion, survival, food, art, photography, etc.
I have loved Pinterest like a beauty addict loves Sephora.
But then I went and did something.
I clicked on an animal rescue story.
And now my feed is FILLED with animal rescue stories.
Each one showing a pitiful little creature near death.
I am compelled to click on each one to make sure that the cat or dog is now happy and healthy with a loving family and a warm home.
Every time I am in tears.
Seriously, who cuts off an animal’s feet?
Or chains a pregnant dog in a forest to die?
I don’t know what to do to get rid of all these sad stories.
And maybe it’s saying something about me that I need to look the other way.
But I can’t handle the suffering.
And now my stream is filled with these stories.
