The witch and the shaman said their dogs possess their own eternal soul…


The shaman said his entire troop of pets and domestic goats are all individual souls on par with what humans feel they possess, and will survive after the body is gone…


He said this with a smile and as a matter of fact…


“People are too attached to their skin,” he said. “They don’t like the idea of what they believe to be a demotion by comparing themselves with something they believe to be less than human. It isn’t.”…


Most of his friends held this same spiritual idea. Except the Mason’s wife, who had her reservations…


“So you mean to tell me,” she said to him, “that being a chicken on the dinner table is equal to me preparing the bird, and filling its behind with homemade stuffing?”…





“Exactly,” said the shaman. “Spiritually equal. You are very perceptive.”…


“But I don’t believe it,” she said…


“You don’t have to,” said the shaman. “It will remain truth whether you believe it or not.”…


“But what’s the point in being a chicken?” she said. "Or any animal?"…


“To know what it's like to be a chicken,” he said. “Why else? And as far as animals go, what do you think you are?”…


“I meant the four-legged, furry kind; or feathered,” she said. “And why would I want to know what it’s like to be a chicken in the first place?”…


“Why wouldn’t you,” said the shaman. “After all, it’s not forever.”…


The Mason’s wife had no problem believing in reincarnation. But the very thought of being a chicken or a worm was so repulsive to her that it almost made her gag…


“Don’t worry,” the witch told her, hoping to lighten her mood. “Like most beliefs, it’s something you can turn off and put on the shelf. Besides, who cares? It’s silly even thinking about it.”…

The first wet day of the season is giving a lot of people headaches, bringing mudslides and floods to fire ravaged land…


The skank was grateful that she lived in a bubble that trapped the sun the year round. But she loved rainy days…


“The east coast is freezing sharks to death and killing fishes and iguanas in Florida,” said the troll…


“Bats are falling dead from trees in Australia by the hundreds because of a heat wave they’re having,” said the skank. “Crazy weather everywhere."…


The witch was in the kitchen making scrambled eggs and bacon. “I hope you guys are hungry,” she said. “Consider it a token payment for your help.”…


They were there to help her strip the buds off the stems and trim the leaves around the colas. It was a good working day…


The troll always looked forward to helping his friends harvest their new crops because he got to sample the goods. “The way things are going, those big outlets are going to be looking over their shoulder to see if the Feds are coming,” he said…


“Sessions is a kiss ass,” said the skank…


“They all are,” said the witch. “This marijuana thing has grown into a big juggernaut. Not even the Federal Government is going to go against a populist movement like the weed initiative. There’s too much money to be made, too many taxes to levy.”…


She supposed that Trump was at an age where he didn’t have to be high to experience brain lapses. His nature is governed by Occam’s razor and a truckload of self- aggrandizement …


If he happened to forget or suddenly become bored by the fine points of diplomacy, it really didn’t matter. He knew better than anyone else that he had single-handedly turned Washington into a reality show more than it had ever been before. People wanted to be amused, entertained…


Trump knew the world would continue with or without his flubs. His view of the world was not as important as people thought, and he knew this too. He must wonder why others couldn’t see the same thing, thought the witch. Why do they take things so seriously?…


Forgetting is a good trick we don’t need to learn. Trump knows that because of this built-in human flaw, he can lie through his teeth every single day of the week and people will forgive and forget in short order. They always do, especially if you give them what they want…


“I heard Trump and his wife sleep in separate bedrooms,” said the skank…


“I bet Melania has a hell of a tale to tell,” said the witch. “A sad and tragic tale.”…


“After he kicks, the gates will open” said the troll. “I’m sure she’s taking notes.”…
