Today I was inspired by Jane Goodall. I was watching a documentary about her life and it was quite fascinating. She moved to Africa at age 26 to live with the chimps and basically became one of them. I think I was so enthralled because, a. she is my age (I could never image being in the jungle alone) and b. I know nothing about Africa (I like to look at wilderness, not be in it).
I’ve had my run with Mother Nature. She doesn’t like me. Probably the best example was last summer in Colorado. After being hesitant about mountain climbing, I happened to trip over a branch and rolled down an entire mountain (ripped the crotch out of my jeans…drama). My family laughed and took pics. So loving.
I might sound very naive saying I don’t know anything about Africa, but I don’t. Now that I watched the documentary, I am much more knowlegable. I have a little background though… my cousins and I dressed up as Africa for Halloween (on the fly had to think of a group costume).
Basically, Jane Goodall was a risk taker and a badass. I could use to be a little more like her.
