Family Many people wonder what kind of animal they would be if they had a choice. We all have wished or imagined at some point being an animal, whether as an escape or just plain fantasy as a kid. People have imagined being all kinds of animals, especially birds that can soar.

Something that is not only beautiful from the sight of it, but also feared when shown that it is mad to back off and leave it alone. It would have to describe me as who I am now, with the exception that I don’t have to pay taxes or need a boss. Family comes first for this animal for it is a traveler of nuclear families.

That just makes our group that much more dangerous for our enemies or prey. They are organized and synchronized, and we move with swiftness and calls like wild Indians that send shivers down our preys backs. They are cunning; in a sense that if you think you can out smart one another might catch your trick and tell your tale. Smart enough that they understand each by mere facial expressions or stances. Everyone in the group knows who the leader is just by how everyone in the group shows their submissiveness and respect. There is a mutual understanding of the language, and there are no confusions only direction. They only really need to watch out for two things, and that’s humans and tigers. That isn’t the only way they communicate, they make a sound in a certain way that can…

she had to say while giving her encouragement but I found she was quite withdrawn. Body language is also very important when communicating with a dementia patient so I made sure I had an open posture, was relaxed and at eye level with her. My facial expressions mirrored hers showing that I understood how she felt which encouraged the patient to communicate. After spending time with the patient and she opened up I learned that she couldn’t remember where she was. I gently placed my hand on her shoulder…
