Two weeks ago I wrote about some of my African safari experiences. And still I think about the mystery of these animals. How they make their lives work without the intellect, language, science and culture that we enjoy as a human beings. They appear to be less destructive of nature than we are. They just seem to make things work and get by. I looked at the lion and wondered what is she thinking? What are her goals in life? Does she ever have a crisis, like me? Amazing . . . animals are so different from us.

The Coach is reminded by Samuel Butler . . . 'Man, unlike the animals, has never learned that the purpose of life is to enjoy it.'
