A tease for my upcoming column on preying for one’s food in the modern world. I hope to have it up by Sunday, September 19. Please check back. Here is an excerpt:
“You are an animal – literally. You hunt and you prey daily, because that’s what it takes to stay alive in the animal world. You seek energy to continue, so that you can seek more energy to keep on continuing. Since you are a human animal though, you take the easy way out. You prey on the dead and rotting carcasses of processed foods, hunting more for taste than for efficiency in energy. In doing so, the animal in you is not developing so well.”
And some food for thought… so to say. An anonymous proverb:
Each day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up to be stalked. It knows if is to survive, it must outrun the fastest lion.
Each day in Africa, a lion wakes up hungry. It knows if it is to survive, it must outrun the slowest gazelle.
Be you gazelle, or be you lion, when the sun comes up in Africa, you better be running.
Please check back this Sunday for the completed column.
Oh, and there is this from The Mint Juleps, and the AMAZING Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Enjoy….
