Letters of Life


The Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

When wild animals roam freely in this African savannah, implying that therefore you cannot roam as freely, (unless you are a Masai warrior or trained and armed for bush living) it gives you the feeling that somehow the rules have changed ever since you left urban living behind.

Which is a good thing, because the world–in all it’s wild nature and vastness — holds so much to discover, so much to teach, if we just watch and listen.

Secrets — of the natural world, of human nature — are not revealed to the casual enquirer. But if you listen, listen very carefully, distinguish berween the layers of noise and birdsong, listen out for the trills and riffs and phrases, perhaps you might discover something which you only had an inkling of previously.

These kinds of secrets are the nicest. I hope you learn one this week, this month, and soon. Then share it with someone so it’ll be their secret too.


Tell me what you think.
