The Generous Eye: Kinship. Happy Sunday!

If your eye is generous, your whole being is full of light! Jesus

This is the palm of a Chimpanzee’s hand, photographed in Kibale National Park in Uganda, on a Chimpanzee Trek in the forests of the park. We had the privilege of watching 3 Chimps in the wild for well over a half hour. And, though I have struggled over putting what I felt into words, in the end, the photo says it all. May your eye be generous, and your whole being full of light! Happy Sunday.

Hippopotamus at eyelevel

As I have said before, the only safe way to get close to a Hippopotamus is in a boat…and the most dramatic views are from a small boat, where you are close to the waterline. On our boat tour of the Kasinga Channel between Lake George and Lake Edward in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, we had a smallish launch, maybe 14 foot, and were close to the waterline indeed, and eye to eye with the Hippos we encountered. The Hippos in the channel are used to people in boats, some smaller even than ours, and, though certainly aware of us, went about their business pretty much undisturbed.
