Yesterday was the first day back in my office since June 17, when I collapsed unconscious in the street from a faulty heart valve I was born with and didn’t know existed. Open heart surgery and three hospitals stay later, I’m at last getting well enough to return full-time to my vegan, animal rights work. My focus is on writing the biography of Topsy the elephant and preserving the history of the animal rights movement in various projects. Also, I continue to serve as a volunteer on the board of the Culture and Animals Foundation.

Photo of Corfe Castle taken this grey, overcast Saturday morning from the National Trust cottage we rented for a week. Our first time away in more than two years. I wish to return next January but hopefully for two weeks as one is not enough for any break to be meaningful.
Parties for animals around the world call ⤵️ on the University of Barcelona to stop the planned killing of 38 beagle #dogs next week & for them to be handed over for adoption instead.
The lives of these animals matter.

We visited The National Trust’s Kingston Lacy today for the first time. A beautiful house with an intriguing history. We look forward to a return visit in August when we’re next in Dorset and the weather hopefully warmer to see the gardens.
