SHARON’S ALL ANIMAL –
unpredictable for the sake of her own survival – like all animals.
She’s not afraid like we are – of that connection. We fear it. She recognizes it. Embraces it.
Accepts that which she cannot change.
She is it. She has all the animal moves – the gender moves too.
It’s all her. She walks it talks it sleeps it.
Then writes it paints it cooks it – puts it all out there for us to see.
Ever notice how she doesn’t refer to herself as an animal lover, as other animal advocates and activists do?
She really doesn’t love a particular species or breed within a species, just because they’re animals. She loves her family and part of that family comprises other species.
Just like she’s not going to like a human based on their skin or gender. She respects everyone’s right to exist within certain parameters – those that affect her safety and the safety of her family and the safety of those who can’t defend themselves against intruders.
She has been throughout her career of service concerned primarily with security in every area of living. It breathes her like she’s on life support. Nobody knows where that breath comes from and it’s best not to pry.
That’s all there is to Sharon. She is one Goddamn simple animal with one Goddamn simple constitution, who embraces all of her traits, while respecting the traits of others – until they conflict with hers.
And then what?
