The Druid view of fellow creatures is as close as I can get to my own understanding. It's a Celtic thing for the Druids, what you call Pre-Roman, that seeks wisdom, knowledge and the spirit of creation through a relationship with living things that reckons upon living things having the quality of sacred and this quality I'd define as containing a venerable-ness that commands respect.
Then a person sees a representative of one of the great towers of Modern Druids
and he's dressed up as something like a Hobbit, he's got the white beard, and a
staff and there's a whole thing happening with sandals. And the question for me,
does this man share my view of Bluebirds as chess players, and it's the Girl
Thrasher that writes the lists or does he just want to be powerful in the world.
