'Three Hearts That Beat As One'

by Diana Moreton - [email protected] 

As soon as the pretty woman greeted me at her front door, I knew love was in the air. As the dog barked and the cockatoo quipped, who would have thought this modern day beauty would be harboring two Vietnamese pot bellied pigs in her back yard; one Duncan, I believe, resembling the Tazmanian Devil?

As we drew nigh to the love nest; their immaculate pen, Duncan and Rosie looked like they were wiggling in lovable excitement as Angie approached them. Were they genuinely fond of Angie because they recognized she was kind enough to give them room and board? Were they happy to see a new face coming out to meet them? Or perhaps these two angels with hooves were deeply in love with this woman who rescued them from the dinner plate.

After some swift observation, I think these fat specimens of virtue absolutely love their lives with Angie. I think every moment of every day they exult the sun and the winds, and when Angie is not right there with them, gaze at the house on the forgiving hill, in gratitude. I think their conversations are about her, and are of loyalty and highest esteem, that she could look down upon the lowly and actually care. Who is this goddess of two pigs?

Dear Angela, Sweet Saint Angela. Thank you for not looking at us as mere food. Thank you for recognizing our similarities, instead of our differences. Thank you for piercing the veil of ignorance and depravation, placing us on the highest pedestal of life; a footing equal to your own. You don't know what this means to us and the swine nations. They may still try to eat us, but we know you love us, and that is all that matters. As we squirm and tremble to get away, we will remember the Saint who lived in the house at the top of the forgiving hill.
