Vegetarianism

Don’t eat me, please…

So I became Vegetarian. Yes, i did. When asked why, i wish i could deliver a heated speech on how cruel it is to slaughter innocent creatures for pleasure, on how humans have a responsability toward the rest of the animal kingdom or on how amazing it is for you health; but i don’t.

I ‘d rather answer with another question : “Why do you eat meat?”

It is quite interesting the kind of answer people come up with : Culture, the food chain, etc. What i found though is that most people just don’t care.

I got exposed and was willing to try it out after asking myself the same question; also out of curiosity. I turned out not being able to feel comfortable eating meat after hearing about the impact a meat diet has on the world, so i stopped.

A friend showed me a ring that had the engraving Mo’ anam Cara, i was convinced it was latin even when he told me the meaning i still went and googled it. Needless to say i never went back to admit that i was wrong, instead i got inspired and drew out my first short comic ever, telling the story of an encounter between two souls. Now that i look back the narrative can seem a bit chaotic but i’m still pretty chaffed at myself for finishing it (i have the bad habit of leaving stuff halfway –refering to this-).

This poem i found on the website explaining the Meaning of Mo anam cara and i believe is the most beautiful thing anybody can wish another.

So to my friends.

“May you be blessed with good friends.  May you learn to be a good friend to your self.

May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where there is great love, warmth, feeling and forgiveness.

May this change you.

May it transfigure that which is negative, distant or cold in you.

May  you be brought in to the real passion, kinship and affinity of belonging.

May you treasure you friends.

May you be good to them and may you be there for them; may they bring you all the blessings, challenges, truth and light that you need for your journey.

May you never be isolated; but may you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with you Anam cara.”

John O’Donohue
