He spoke to us

Todd and I met John, the African lion, at the Cincinnati Zoo prior to the Festival of Lights.  At first, he seemed like any big ole cat, curious and sneaky.  But, he stopped, sat down, and stared into our souls.  It felt as though he was trying to tell us something.  For a moment we were connected with one of the great animals on our planet.  As we were getting ready to leave, he make a little murmur noise as if to say “Don’t go, stay awhile.”

Wise.

I see you.

Contemplating.

Curious.

Shy?

Enjoying the light.

Lazy day.

Playful.

“Hello, there.”
