I started this piece some time ago (not long after my class with Michael deMeng) but could not find what I wanted for the bottom section. As I rode in my Dad's truck on Monday I spotted an old style petrol cap at my feet - Dad had found it on the side of the road. He has quite a collection of these; 'just in case I lose one'; fortunately this one was given up willing. As to the message of this piece - make of it what you will - if we meet one day I will tell you a story. A story of birthing a cow ... and the afterbirth days later. I will tell how it, and other events, led to my vegetarianism, for now the shrine tells its own tale.
