Helen Keller described life as "a grand adventure or nothing at all".
This blog is about my own grand adventures over more than seven decades. I could tell you about my family, friends and loves; or my experience with loss, death, divorce, betrayal, and other life tragedies.
But life remains a grand adventure,
and its those experiences I'll pass along to you. LIVE LARGE & LONG!
A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness
"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."
This zoo, in Colorado Springs, is best known for its gentle giraffes that are at eye level with people in their enclosure. For $2 you can buy fresh lettuce and feed them. They stick out their black tongues for the treats.
The zoo is quite hilly, but is layed out well and there is a sense of wildlife in the wild rather than caged. As a matter of fact, we encountered two stag deer, with their horns in velvet, who were not in a cage. They have wandered onto the zoo property and apparently like the grazing around the cages. They also had no fear of people, and I was able to get quite close to take a photo.
