Dear Friend,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your truly warm and uplifting email.

Whenever I encounter a wounded animal I feel that animal's pain with every fibre of my being, for such is the result of a nagal's training. I therefore always know that I will not be able to rest without doing whatever I can to heal that animal. But the way in which power has set it up is that the nagal is not provided with any anaesthetic in his bag of tricks. You see, it's the rule of the hunt: power shows no mercy and grants no quarter; the winner takes all. So in having to reset the broken bones of that animal, or perform open surgery on it, I know that in its pain, my friend is more than likely going to bite me, or at least try to. But how can I not do this for my friend? What sort of love would that be? So I talk quietly and lovingly to my friend whilst I do all I can to heal him. But sometimes I have to become very fierce with my friend before he will even allow me to try to heal him. :(

Sometimes I succeed. Sometimes I fail. When I do succeed I have made a true friend for life, and my heart soars!

When I have failed, I am left with bloody hands, and I cry for a friend lost!

With warm regards,
