I have all sorts of things I’m passionate about other than yoga. Animal rights and protecting our planet are two of those things. My love for animals goes WAY back. I often think about my poor mother who would kindly suggest that we not add another animal to the family, since we probably already had a dog, cat, some kind of rodent, etc. I would smile, nod and head off to a pet store where I would save whatever animal I could from its horribly small cage, invasive fluorescent lights, and deafening sound of children cooing and tapping on their glass prisons. I would rehearse a heart wrenching story, walk into the house and present my mother with the $1.00 feeder mouse that would now cost her $100’s to comfortably house. This happened on repeat, for many years….sorry mom!
