Every now and again a short video comes my way that makes me think deeply about who we are and who "they", other animals, are. This one, called "Song Of the Spindle", by Drew Christie with music by Spencer Thun, is one of them. 

You'll have to be able to laugh at yourself and at ourselves, but the life lessons offered in this humorous and educational video are truly invaluable. I hope they will encourage us to change the ways in which we interact with other animals and also how we live our lives. There really is much room for improvement.
