Re: Walk with me - a sunny day in Aarau

I hope that one thing is clear and that is that I don't judge anyone. I truly believe that everyone can do whatever they want with their life. Being vegan for me is actually less about the nutrition and more about animals. I made this choice as I didn't want let any other animal suffer because of my selfish needs. Of course I do keep close eye on my nutrition. I studied several books and I do researches constantly to make sure that I don't miss anything and I must say that I feel much better than ever before :)

This question doesn't make me uncomfortable and I would never even try to offend you :) I do appreciate that you read the article and that you ask the question. People are very often distracted by small things. This event is about the animal suffering and it is not a social event. This is why we are in the 'background' and just stand there quietly dressed in black with masks on our faces so that people don't get distracted by who we are. They focus their attention on what we do. When I say faith of the actual animal I mean death - that is the ultimate result of the meat and dairy industry. Very often people say that this can't be done in Switzerland, that this is not true. They are truly surprised by the cruelty that is happening behind the curtains. We had many people bursting in tears too. I must say that I was surprised that so many people don't realize how their meals come to the table.

As I say I don't judge anyone. But I believe that people must be informed to take right decisions (whatever it is) and this is what we do - we spread the information, nothing more, nothing less.

Oh, we have too much snow in mountains this year! There were so many issues. It was snowing and snowing and snowing.. Now it's finally better and I hope that there won't be any flooding this year once all the snow starts to melt..

I also struggle with my time recently. The more I work on the business plan the less time I have to spend here. And it's going to be less and less and less..

Thank you so much for your kind words! I do enjoy talking to you too :)

Okay, thank you for this explanation @delishtreats. Your perspective is now clearer to me. I can admire you acting on your convictions, as that is not common. At least in American culture. And … I am not the least bit offended or feeling judged … 😊

We come from different philosophical viewpoints and that is okay. “In here” we are adding value to our Steem blockchain, each in our own ways, with adherents to both …

”I must say that I was surprised that so many people don't realize how their meals come to the table.”

We share this in common, although I am sure you have a better foundation of understanding than I, as you grew up on a farm. I have only admired “what it takes” mostly from a distance. I refer specifically to this in my “Big Hole Valley in Montana” post, as people too often take so much for granted …

”I also struggle with my time recently. The more I work on the business plan the less time I have to spend here. And it's going to be less and less and less..”

I take it this is related to starting your own restaurant?

I have always been very open “in here” about the time commitment. In the “real world,” I am very (perhaps too much so …) sensitive to raising expectations that can’t be met … In some ways, if you’ll excuse the expression, it reminds me of time I spent in the past on the hobby of researching family history and hearing, from an expert, that it was …

”The hobby from hell. The better you get at it, the more work you have to do!” 😉

Linked then to another well-known saying (over here anyway) …

”Hobbies cost you money! Businesses make you money!”

With that, on into the rest of my day. With warm wishes for you @delishtreats on your business endeavors and your future success! 👍
