Most of you know I am an animal lover, and believe in respect for all animals regardless of their physical affiliation. Do I believe they have souls and can think? Yes. I think they do, and they can reason and feel and believe and understand. I think they do all of these things, but not by human standards, rather, it is a different level of interaction on the physical plane.
I do not believe they are beneath us.
When the opportunity came to take Barry the Koala bear, over to Italy to continue his adventures and help promote the Australian Koala Hospital, I jumped at the chance. (More info here: http://
Please follow Barry as he travels with me through Italy, and meets some very interesting people. He is also getting quite the cultural education and art / architectural history tour, I think you will agree when you see his pictures. If you are interested in any of the places he has been, there should be a note below the photo so you can see where it is, or do a search on the net for more background.
These pictures have been posted on Facebook in an album on my personal page https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151053767078083.499301.765498082&type=3&l=bee2bd6e00 Every so often I will do a post on Barry’s personal adventures too. To keep up with me as an artist, please join my professional page http://www.facebook.com/artistjuliatrops.
Note: While I appreciate all friend requests, I try to keep the quality of my fb interactions at a high level, where I can pay attention to you as well. Too many and that is just not possible. Thank you for understanding.
