A Guinea Fowl & the Gift of Now

A Guinea Fowl and the gift of now



This morning I committed an act of animal cruelty,…at least, that’s what my Siberian Husky, ‘Trooper’ might say. 

Somewhere near my house, someone has a Guinea Fowl they cannot keep corralled and this loud, obnoxious, frantic, bird has decided when it escapes it needs to come to my house, zig zagging in my front yard and scream at the top of its ample lungs.

About Jill M Jacques

I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and have spent most of my life here doing the usual things - marrying, having children and caring for an array of pets ranging from dogs to silkworms and chameleons. I first became interested in philosphy and its practical application in everyday life in my early 20s and spent many years as part of a group that pursued this goal. Drawing on this experience, I have been running "How to live in the Now" programmes for over 10 years. I wrote this book in response to requests from group members for something "simple and practical". I tend to see the funny side of life situations and enjoy writing humorous back pages as well as short stories and some poetry. Some of these have been published. Being here now is what really matters.
