Mah new best frawnddd!! I haven’t named him/her yet!! This gator is ‘bout 3-4 feet!! Definitely intrigued by mine and Tolkien’s presence lol. Love watching this gator glide through the water so gracefully. We need to do more to protect our wildlife. This may be a lake, but they belong in larger habitats, such as the Florida Everglades. Their natural home, we need to clean and restore the flow! #natureisbeautiful #allcreaturesarebeautiful #alligator #floridagator #gorgeous #lakeview #floridabeauty #newfrawnd #cueeriemusic #gracefulswimmers #protectwildlife #freedom_preservationofthewild #protectfloridagators #restoretheflow #floridaeverglades

Okay, I'll admit it, I hate salads. Yes, I said it!! I was a ballerina for so long that I was forced to eat salads all the time. However, going meatless does not necessarily mean you HAVE to eat them all the time. It does mean that you can make them more fun! I know I have been away for a while and I apologize if anyone is still out there!!

https://www.facebook.com/donate/678095942582534/ For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Wildlife S.O.S. I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founder's (Kartick Satyanarayan) of this incredible organization at the Animal Law Conference a few years ago. They are located in India. However, the work they do has impacted all wildlife in India as well as the poor people. They help to teach them not to use wildlife in order to earn money from tourists. They have taught them to earn money from real jobs. Most importantly they rescue animals from all situations and provide them a safe haven. They fight in India's court system and help to promote better legislation. They may not be a rescue in America, but they are probably on of the hardest working organizations world wide and deserve our respect. We can learn a lot of this organization and its hardworkiing people! MY favorite animal is the Bengal Tiger and they are going extinct. As are many animals all around the world. Please if you can, donate to Wildlife SOS. You are not only helping in the rescue of innocent sentient beings, but you are providing for their safety. Thank you all!! I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. #wildlifesos #wildlifesosindia #karticksatyanarayan #protectwildlife #indianwildlife #everydollarcounts #pleasedonate #awareness #educate #compassion #rescue #wildliferescue #animallaw #animallawconference #animallawconference2015

My First Experience in a Winter Wonderland

img_3076

I finally got to experience snow, at the young, ripe age of 27! Being a native Floridian, I never got to experience snow. Snow is a mesmerizing form of science. Frozen water. Maybe it is because I have never experienced snow, that I am able to appreciate it in all this natural awe. This is picture from February 2017 in Brattleboro, Vermont. This is a creek in the backyard of the house we were visiting.

I simply found myself just standing outside and experiencing my surroundings through my senses. Feeling the cold air as the wind cascaded against me. Smelling snow for the first time, is quite like smelling rain, they have their own distinct smells. Staring at the icy creek, wanting to stand out, but knowing that with enough force the ice could break through. Giving you that exhilarating sensation of the unknown. Listening to every footstep as the snow crunches beneath your feet. Most importantly, just being able to see snow and realizing that it is exactly like every book, picture or movie you have ever encountered describing snow. It simply is breathtaking.
