I volunteered at the Farm Sanctuary Animal Acres in Acton, California and I popped a lot of cherries. As in firsts. As in I never been. As in wow...hat a fruit-freaking-ful experience. I came wanting to help with catering for One Veg World, as we were serving all the guests for the "Celebration for the Turkeys" annual event. The little time I had with the animals before serving was definitively the most peaceful experience I have encountered with animals, period. Being a new vegan, I never realized how grateful I am in this lifetime to be able to have choices and humility and compassion. Every animal felt loved, every human felt at peace, and I was ecstatic the whole time. It became even better when One Veg World told me to take out my camera and start snapping photos for this event! I never have taken photos for anyone other than myself. Honestly. So this was my first time handling any typ of event. I was nervous, but completely threw on my game. Now I'm definitely going to invest in some real photography classes!
