Day 23 - Animals are wonderful

Animals are wonderful. They don’t tell you boring stories about their family or their past. They just look at you with better eyes, deciding if a snuggle or a good kill is in their best interests. They are quieter, stronger, faster, and they lead interesting lives with little variation in terms of daily life. There’s a good lesson. The physical, repetitive life of a lion versus the oh-so-varied and manic life of the human. We have immense fun in our comfortable lives, but how many nights out equals the intense and explosive experience of a lion chasing a kill and the subsequent enjoyment. Does anything we do come close? Impossible to answer, but the implication is worth contemplating: perhaps it’s better to do less with more focus and intensity.
