In praise of fins, fur and more than two legs

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would  live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan."   - Irving Townsend

In the lion's den

For anyone who's ever glimpsed my "Bucket List" and wondered what 
* Hug A Lion *  was all about. 

I know it's totally nuts, but can you imagine how that would feel?

They say God created the cat so man would know how it felt to stroke the tiger.  
Maybe. But it's not the same. 

 * Hug A Lion *  is still near the top of my list.
