    Quote Kinship with All Life

    THE ELEPHANT'S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?

    Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller, The Elephant Whisperer. He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.

    On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.
    He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and numerous elephants.

    Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved 'man-friend'. A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.

    Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only
    because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these
    elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of
    the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked
    in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days, making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house. Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!

    But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.

    Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.

    SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS GREATER
    AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
    This is such a beautiful story! I first heared it on Swedish radio this summer; Malik Benjeloul the Swede who made the Oscar winning documentary "Searching for Sugarman", told that he had the intention to make a film about this very man, but unfortunately he passed away.

    Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for all these wonderful pictures!

    It really is that pretty..

    Krka waterfalls in National park Krka is one of the most beautiful parts of Croatia (in my opinion) - especially the Skradinski buk section: cascades, woods, lush vegetation...

    'Murmuration' - Mind-Boggling Flocking Behavior of Starlings

    To me, it feels like this phenomena is the oversoul of the starling using each bird to create a spontaneous, synchronized art form of superb grace and fluidity.
    Though no doubt, Nature being the practical being that She is, there is some practical purpose as well.

    Quote This is a film called 'Murmuration',
    which is the term used to describe
    a flock of starlings and their mind
    boggling feats of flight before settling
    down for the night.

    This was made by two young women,
    Sophie and Liberty, who are independent
    documentary filmmakers based in
    London and New York.

    They find inspiration from bike rides, being
    by water, making things and meeting people.

    Quote "This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."
