Butterfly rescue

Stuck with foam & sand
©copyright2014owpp

Strolling along the sea our eyes were caught by
Your struggle with sand and foam flapping uselessly
Your altered colored wings…we then gently held
Them between our thumb & index to place you under
The protection of the dunes where you clung to the
Dry weeds grasping with all your might succeeding
To flap your wings once again rendering your freedom

And ours…

Temple Grandin – Thinking in Pictures


I don’t know why I didn’t think of posting before this brilliant excerpt of the film “Temple Grandin” which I was so impressed with. So, here it is!
It’s a story of victory… of a person turning their handicap to strength and soaring to heights very few achieve.
I couldn’t find the full film but I have found after much research this very high quality BBC documentary on T. Grandin’s life too.
Let me know if you were familiar with the film and your opinion on this documentary.

The Woman Who Thinks Like A Cow (Documentary)

Published on Jan 23, 2013
Dr Temple Grandin has a unique ability to understand the animal mind – and she’s convinced her skill is down to her autistic brain.

Temple believes she experiences life like an animal. Her emotions are much simpler than most people’s and she feels constantly anxious. It’s this struggle with overwhelming anxiety that led her to discover just how much she has in common with animals and, in particular, cows.

Using her ability to observe the world through an animal’s eye, she has been able to make an enormous impact on animal welfare. Her greatest achievement has been in the area of slaughterhouses – she has fundamentally changed the way animals are held and slaughtered.

Today she’s an associate professor of animal science, a best-selling author and the most famous autistic woman on the planet.
