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 was on a safari in Kenya. We actually stayed with this lioness over an hour to get this two minute video. She did a lot of careful creeping towards her prey (we were between her and her antelope). She was with another lioness, and they were using a strategy of a "striker" and a "catcher". The striker would drive the prey towards the catcher, who would make the kill. In this case this lioness was the catcher, but shortly after this video clip they gave up and didn't attempt a kill because the antelope wandered too far away to be caught by surprise.
