Last week I was at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
The most incredible part of my trip was BE-ing PRESENT with a pair of GIRAFFES.
I live in Minnesota, and at the Minnesota Zoo, the animals roam free, and so they are very far away.
At the Lincoln Park Zoo, the giraffes were literally feet away. I saw directly into their big, beautiful foot-long eye-lashy eyes.
I could have stayed for hours. Their gaze was so magnificent, present, and powerful.
They chewed grass, blinked their eyes, and remained present with me as I watched them.
I want to be present to the people in my life--just like the giraffes. I wish people in my life are as present to me as giraffes.
They stared directly down into my soul.
Thank you. I am so grateful.
