I don't know why I felt compelled to do this, but I had a strong sense from somewhere in my outstretched mind to begin a journal relating to animals. Noticing them, my responses to them, theirs to mine, and theirs in general whether I have anything to do with it or not. My own animal companions, and others. (Including cryptids, cryptos, and other non-human animals.) After a few days I am amazed at how much animal related interactions and observations, signs and synchronicities, have announced themselves.
Maybe the animal is a focus point to anchor intent and synchronicities, although I'm not sure what the intent is, yet, or what I can learn from this exercise. But it's been poetic in a some ways, relaxing, enjoyable, and interesting. Sometimes like an active meditation.
