Outstanding Website - Veganism: A Truth Whose Time has Come! TheVeganTruth blog

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that TheVeganTruth blog
won 'outstanding website' award
in the Vegan of  the Year Awards 2014

The magic that veganism brings to life is an award in and of itself. 
Winning was even more magical because I didn't try to get people to vote for me or even know I was nominated.  I'm on HIGHatus from facebooking and blogging, but went to my wall where someone posted congratulations. Yes, it makes me feel good and appreciated. The award I most desire is animal liberation, the abolition of slavery of anyone sentient, a "no-kill world" a saner, more respectful, less violent; vegan humanity bringing peace to Earth. 


Veganism recently celebrated it's 70th birthday. I recently celebrated my 36th veganniversary; making me vegan more than half the years since the birth of veganism.

36th Veganniversary, 57th birthday, and farewell message; going on HIGHatus



Now that I'm gaining years, the best thing about birthdays is that it is also my veganniversary; and in that way, I love gaining years! Last year on my 35th veganniversary, I hosted a public celebration. This year, I'm celebrating 36 years of commitment to veganism in quiet solitude. I am taking this day to say: so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye, adios, shalom, ciao, sayonara, au revoir, arrivederci, namaste, aloha, hasta la vista - till we meet again. I'm taking a breather from facebooking and blogging for an extended time period. I'm on HIGHatus.

I'm intending to grow a large veganiclly-grown flower and food garden - in memory of Kisses; I want to think of her in an "alive" way - so I want to create an ecosystem that is alive and beautiful - commemorated to her memory. It will be close to the house for everyone to enjoy during the day; as a lovely break from what we do each day to build our vegan-first-and-foremost, eco-friendly-off-the-grid property, "life-as-it-should-be-is-the-goal" sort of world that is named Shangri-la; a vegan educational center and community in northland, New Zealand and powered by the volunteers of Gentle World and many global visitors and helpers.
