A Meditation on Elderly Animals

 


Elderly Animals: Photographs by Isa Leshko from Mark & Angela Walley on Vimeo.

It’s always interesting to me how provocative is the subject of elderly animals. I’ve met animal lovers vehemently opposed to what they feel is the cruelty of keeping old friends alive. Others believe continuing their care is the apex of human compassion.

I find Mark and Angela Walley‘s short film on Isa Leshko’s photos a beautiful meditation on aging and love… And you?

You can see more of Isa’s images at her website.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
