    When two people of different backgrounds fell in love, they were discouraged by being asked, “A bird may love a fish but where would they build a home together?” (Joseph Stein) I'm glad the bird and the fish were not discouraged to find a way.

    #15 For just a little bit @Sarah Elkins. I helped my Brother and his family move over the weekend. They moved from a small acreage to a larger one about 20 minutes west, almost dead center on the top of the Buffalo Ridge here in SW MN (you can throw a softball into SD). Anyway, they are surrounded by section upon section of CRP. Wild grasslands in all directions, from the oasis of wetlands, cottonwood, oak, poplar and blue spruce that shelter the homestead. After the final round of "heavy lifting" yesterday, I sat down, beer in hand.

    I heard nothing but bird song, and the wind flowing through a HUGE Cottonwood on the northeast corner of the property. I lost myself in the wind sweeping up a ridge line to the southeast. The grasses performing natures ballet, dancing up the ridge in sweeping viridescent shades. The wind and the grass reminded of two lovers holding hands as they journeyed the road less traveled, basking and joyful in the moment. At some point I lost sense of the birdsong, the rustling of the cottonwood, my own breath, my heartbeat, and, yes, even the cold beer in my hand. I'm not sure how long I was there, yet a phrase came back to me when I started to feel my heart beat again, "He-nay-nee" said my mind. In those moments, I felt complete peace.

    Thanks for that phrase Sarah!

    It is much like another from the Natal region of South Africa. There the phrase is “Sawu bona”, which translated means “I see you.”

    "The hamster wheel" - what some call the "monkey mind". It never stops, it's always going, you're always thinking...mindfulness helps to give it a rest. Your mind doesn't go willingly, rather like a Type-A CEO who needs to be tied down in an airplane seat for a much-needed vacation. That buzzing little hoozit in your pocket? It can wait.

    Thank you for this beautifully written buzz, Sarah.
    As a nature lover myself, I concur with -- and echo -- your strong sentiments. There's nothing that compares to the beauty and wonder of nature to set one's mind at ease, to help find solace, peace and tranquility in today's hyper-paced and fluid high-tech world. Thus, let's all raise a glass to Mother Nature and treat her with the respect and admiration she deserves. Keep buzzing...

    My yogi always says that mindfulness isn't an empty mind or not thinking. It's acknowledging the distracting thoughts, then putting them aside until the proper time to deal with them, and then returning to the present and your focus. It is much like the "It can wait" with your text messages.

    Very sad stories of the two families indeed. Making cuts to save money on behalf of human lives happens throughout the world sadly. I think of all the fracking that takes place in the US and they have proven there's been an increase in Earthquakes in the areas that do fracking yet nothing has been done. Oklahoma is one such state that was not prone to Earthquakes but that's changed since fracking began, not to mention all the poisons that spill into the soil which travel to the water that people use and consume. We need to take better care of mother earth. My heart broke when I read of that poor gal losing her father (on her birthday, no less) and even for the entire family that was killed in the accident.

    Nice buzz, Debasish. It's very unfortunate that many politicians in the USA and elsewhere are climate change deniers despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. That age-old saying is really ringing true: "You can't fool Mother Nature."
    To wit: decades of environmental degradation caused by greedy corporations, Big Oil, and carbon producing industries worldwide have only contributed to a host of already alarming problems, including: unclean air, polluted water, record-setting temperatures, rising sea levels, super storms, melting ice sheets and ozone layer depletion (in and over Antarctica), etc. It's a long and ugly list on the road to ruining the only planet we currently call home. A sad story indeed.

    Thursday thoughts. This is one of my favorite respites. A place where my heart is content. As the water caresses my soul I am reminded of the little things and drawn into a moment of bliss and solitude. It is here I find balance and it is here that a broken heart can heal. It is here where friends meet and laugh and simply be. #bytheriver

    Great post. For some reason I immediately assumed the park was named after Hardy Kruger, a great actor that I assumed was South African due to his brilliant role in one of my all time favourite movies, The Wild Geese. Turns out he is German. You have me researching the eye colour of cats and big cats now. Turns out Lions and tigers typically have yellow gold eyes, and leopards and jaguars more greenish. White tigers that have ice blue eyes are said to all be descendants of one tiger that was captured in India called Mohan. Pretty cool.

Usually these parks offer game drives where you sit in an open Landrover and they take you out early morning or evening. Oh yes, apparently Leopards can distinguish Canadians and often they come from their hiding places to see what people from far up north look like :) Thanks for reading – glad you enjoyed it!
