Otterday! And Open Thread. (XMAS-FREE ZONE)

[See our other Otterday if you want to talk about that celebration some people have on the 25th!]

Today’s otter, Mazu, is an orphaned Congo Clawless Otter, rescued and hand reared with assistance from the International Otter Survival Fund.

an otter and a human, shot from behind, sit on a rock looking across a river to the sunset above trees on the other side.

Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires, with the exclusion noted above. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?

This piece is so personal to me because I wrote it as a letter to a friend of mine that was raped. It included everything that I wanted to say to her at the time but didn’t have the courage to say.
