Ownership of What?
What do I own and what do you own, what does anybody really own?
As endless a debatable question as any philosophical query can be, especially when it’s very murmur is a risky exploration into the unfathomable depths to which humanity will plunge. A whirlpool of spinning frenzy and an unquenchable desire to own, consume and possess material things, of all manner and matter.
Personally, I own nothing and that is how I perceive my own reality to be. I believe that everything is finite, a mere becoming, being and going. A constant movement and change that is impossible to hold onto and possess, a reality that when challenged has a propensity to create suffering, due to a static suffering of understandable insecure selfishness.
The creators of this website have very recently been made aware of accusations regarding some photographs on the gallery. This website was a genuine attempt to share what we have learned about The Bali Street Dog and its unique and ever changing place within an equally unique and ever changing culture. We do not regard this site as a possession or a frame to display our ego. It is not a gilded cage to show off our plumage. It is nothing more than an attempt to hand back and to pay forward what has, is and always will be a lifelong honor and commitment to The Bali Street Dog and the Bali people for what they taught us.
The Bali Street Dog was and is the focus of this website and it was hoped that it didn’t really matter from where and how information was drawn, as long as it was used to benefit The Bali Street Dog and ensure its continued survival, as they and their parallel human partners endure rapid upheaval and change.
Alas, it would appear that not everyone who espouses to be doing anything and everything possible to protect promote and preserve the wellbeing of The Bali Street Dog are unconditionally genuine and that is very sad.
