Lesson of the pig
She dreamed daily of all the things she already had because they were simple and good and made her content. This is the lesson of the pig.
This is another piece included in "Misfits of Love" a collection of narratives from the voices of the many needy animals that have found their way to Apifera's barnyard to live out their lives. Rosie the pig was originally taken in by Sanctuary One, along with the very handicapped Stevie the goat, her boyfriend. Together they live simple but solid lives surrounded by chickens, ducks, the old goose, equines and a lot of pygmy sized goats. "Misfits of Love" is currently looking for a publisher through my literary agent, Erzsi Deak. Contact her if you'd like to see a working manuscript.
