Re: House fire
The Pain and the self blame is the thing. And its not the same respect and somber social observance that a person gets when human loved ones are tragically taken.
But I know what it is to know and to care for Somebody.
You create a place of utopia for them and you get to know who they are. And you dont let ordinary obtacles get in the way of disrupting the serenity that you have lovingly curated for them.
I believe that Sentience extends the folds of our cerebellum. For ages there has been proposed the question of: "Do Animals have Souls?"
Maybe animals are All Soul. All the Best of what Life and the Universe Is.
Somewhere maybe a kind of free commerce of knowing exists.
I believe they knew you loved them.
