"I stand and look at them [the animals] long and long"
    --Walt Whitman


I won't write much in this post, perhaps because that would take away from the photographic splendor that is one of my "bucket list" locations, that is the Serengeti, in Northern Tanzania in Africa. What I will be preparing is a Simple African Chicken Stew, made as always with high quality ingredients.

However, since I always try to throw in a little "social commentary" to these feature "widescreen" articles of mine, I will borrow a quote from Walt Whitman below...

~stay healthy~

I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contained;
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition;
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins;
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God;
Not one is dissatisfied --- not one is demented with the mania of owning things;
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago;
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.
                              --Walt Whitman

"Sail Forth. Steer for the deep waters only. Reckless O soul, exploring. I with thee and thou with me. For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared go. And we will risk the ship, ourselves, and all." --Walt Whitman
