Animals speak one by one - listen

I have been saying for awhile now that I want to write the stories of the various animals that come and go, often stay, on Apifera Farm. And now I have begun, finally. I created The Animals of Apifera blog that will have individual stories, some told directly to me by the animals, of the particular animal's life, or how it got to our farm. This is a long process - there are many stories to write and many more to come. I am already hopelessly behind, as the Apifera Farm Small Rodent and Bird Cemetery already has about 10 lost friends to honor. I will also be adding a map of the farm, and other facts and trivia about the animals. The first story is up - and I can't guarantee when the next one will be up. Be patient. It is especially difficult to write the stories of those that have passed, as I wrote those stories down on burlap and scraps of seed bags as they came to me in the wind and through bird messengers.

I love that image of the wind and the birds telling you their stories. Amazing. I'm looking forward to meeting them all.

(Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I know about showing up, but it's good to hear it from other people who are living it insteadof just wishing for it. Thank you!)

What a wonderful idea. Just the other day I was chiding myself for not even being able to remember the names of some of the farm cats that have come through my life. Your art, your writing, your mind--lovely.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
