This Hippie Had It Right—We Are All Connected

Above you see a photo being circulated around Facebook just like a million other photos being circulated around Facebook.

It is just that this photo makes the most essential point.

The hippie type in this picture gets it that all people are connected.

I could sit at this computer for the rest of my life and there is not much more that I could convey.

We’ve got to look out for each other and fight for each other.

That is the only way we are going to make progress as individuals, and as people sharing the same world.

Sausage Dog Pony/Hippies/Shetland Islands

Shorty the pony: Pony with short legs costs taxpayer £8,000 in rescues over fears it is stuck in mud

I’d be remiss not to run a picture of the so-called Sausage Dog Pony on this blog.

This Shetland Pony, who lives in over in Great Britain, has very short legs. From a distance, people think it is trapped in the mud and call the local fire squad for a rescue. 

Please click here to read more about the Sausage Dog Pony.

Below is a more normal-sized Shetland Pony. It is something of a hippie pony I’d say. 

Below are some hippies at Woodstock.

I’m not sure that I would have been a hippie if I had lived back in that time. Though I am glad to see that two people in this picture are reading books at Woodstock. I’m certain that if I had gone to Woodstock that I would have taken a book. 

The Shetland Pony was first bred in the Shetland Islands.

Below is a picture of the Shetland Islands. I’d sure like to see a place like this in my life. What do you think it would be like to live in a place that is quiet? Here is information on visiting the Shetland Islands

Here is some history of the Shetland Islands.  

This history says that people have lived in the Shetland Islands for  5000 years.  

Here is a link to the Shetland Museum.

What a big world it is to be full of sausage dog ponies, hippies and the Shetland Islands.
