I just want to say, the lines of communication are open. For you and for me. Use them, we are all here for each other
I didn’t actually get to meet them, but I was lucky enough to attend a session where they were talking. I still cannot believe to this day, that I was THAT lucky, just to be in the same room as them. I have been lucky enough to be in the same room as BOTH the Dalai Lama AND Stephen Fry. The reason I am writing about both of them instead of one, is because their minds are incredible and the way they view the world, is the same way that I view the world too. Although I am little kinder to religions than Stephen Fry is.
Even saying though, one of the things he mentioned was that he doesn’t HATE religion, but he doesn’t think we need so much anymore and that there is nothing wrong with having a religion, just don’t be an extremist. Religions have caused a lot of problems over the thousands of years, but that is because of way, as human beings, we tend to interpret things. Too make right for own own causes.
As you would probably expect watching a live safari drive web live (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wildearth-safaris) the conversation about conservation comes up. How much money it costs to run a conservation park, why can’t we all win the lottery. I hate that I have all these ideas and yet I don’t have the skills or the knowledge, or the backing to set something up. Especially when it comes to conservation work, I think animals deserve to be here more a lot more than we do.
- One idea is to make plushies, mainly of endangered animals and each plushie that is purchased you give the money to conservation.
- Making fantasy type jewellery with all of the African wildlife on it.
