Hello and Welcome

Hunting in the deep dark woods and further creative ventures


Two Wolves

A lovely person on Etsy shared this treasury (featuring one of my items), and had these words.

An old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there's a battle between two wolves that lives inside us all. One is Evil. It's anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego.
"The other is good. It's joy, peach, love, hope, humility, kindness, and truth."
The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?"
The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."

Definitely good words to live by. They strike me as somewhat similar to what my brother told me. There are there kinds of people in this world. Wolves, sheepdogs, and sheep. Those who hurt, those who protect, and those who are swayed by others. It's your own choice as to what kind of person you are.

As a bias, though, this only really applies to people. Animals are animals, and any of them can turn when put into unfortunate situations.
