“the sunset sits to the west;
orange and pink skies settling into the purple hazy mountains,
illuminating a blush-colored sole cloud above.
i’ve been fortunate to watch the same sun set in many, many different places.
the clouds and sky remind me of kindness.
a warmth i didn’t ever believe was genuine
until it was too late.
just like the sunset- i won’t fully appreciate it until it’s gone.”

When you are a Quetzaltrekker guide, and you rescue a baby quetzal... 😮😊🙃🙈🙊😍😀🙃🤗 This was seriously one of the happiest, luckiest days of my life, to find this very rare creature and then be able to rescue it!!! I've never even met a person who has seen a quetzal before! We called the Quetzal refuge and they are sending someone on a 3 hour journey to pick it up tomorrow, and hopefully they can care for it properly and give it a chance to survive.
He was on the ground and too young to fly, obviously fallen or removed from his nest. Then the dog saw it and ran after it, and I raced after the dog, getting there just a second later. Realizing how vulnerable it was, to leave it seemed like a very low chance of survival. He looked very ruffled and in shock at first, but the next morning he was calm and shined with beautiful colors, and sang for us.
The chicos hiking with us were so happy to see and hold a real quetzal, and protected it for the rest of our hike, always with huge smiles. What a gift for them!
Sorry Zane, but this is my now my best day at QT! .

Wir Menschen empfinden Schmerzen, wenn sich unsere Augen entzünden, sprechen unsere Empfindungen aus und gehen zu einem Arzt. Auch Tiere spüren den Schmerz, können ihn aber nicht aussprechen.
Dieser Straßenhund hat eine sicherlich schmerzhafte Augeninfektion. Wir wurden zum Glück von einem Tierfreund informiert. Wir konnten die Infektion mit geeigneten Medikamenten behandeln. Wir haben dem Informanten Augentropfen gegeben, um den Hund zu pflegen, bis er sich erholt hat.
Bitte helfen Sie uns, Tieren in Not zu helfen:

this is what happens when you listen to a mary oliver podcast and then go on a hike.
If y’all could only see what see I saw.
So some quick facts about these stairs: 👉🏾The Haiku Stairs were built in 1942 to access the high point in the mountains and construct a 'Top Secret,' powerful transmitter tower/facility to communicate with Navy ships throughout the Pacific.
It’s a total of 3922 stairs (and that’s going up) and after you’ve climbed them you’ll realize why they’re called “THE STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN.”
Major shoutout to @mike.karas who guided us up and down the mountain.
46 / Cape Town - South Africa > KASTEEL SPORT HIKE 🌄 #108 — Check my story to know more about this hike.
Today I’ve done a beautiful sunset hike, the Kasteel Sport Hike.
It was my second time on this rock called « the diving board » ... such an amazing feeling... quite scary when you put your eyes down and realize that there are more than 400m under you... —

With the way we live as a society, it’s an incessant battle for true homeostasis. We’re constantly confronted with situations, environments, and consumables that are completely antithesis to the way humans were meant to live. After landing back in DC many hours after our scheduled arrival time, I couldn’t help but think about this crazy irony: attending this amazing @faieducation summit to learn more about how to help others be healthier and live closer to the truth , has forced us to endure more stress than even under my (decidedly less than ideal) normal routine. From the sugar and junk food, the alcohol, the sleepless nights, packed schedules, interrupted internal systems, long hours of sitting - in hotel conference rooms, in stale airports and stale airplanes, we’re looking at a recipe for dis-ease. No wonder endocrine disorders and obesity and insulin resistance and thyroid problems and lymph issues and hormonal imbalances and adrenal fatigue and diabetes and chronic pain are swallowing up the American, and more and more, human race. We don’t have the resources, inner or outer, to counterbalance all that [oxidative and inflammatory] stress. I see so many people walking around more dead than alive. We don’t know how to eat, how to move, hell, we don’t even know how to breath properly. If I learned nothing else this weekend, it’s that what my heart, soul, and gut have been telling me is the damn truth. And we have to be willing to wake up and pioneer our way through the bullshit, even with the odds so enormously stacked against us. If this resonates with you, and even if it doesn’t, I’m sending you love 💚
