How alive are you?

Have you Ever....

Walked up on a fawn so young, it just froze in place, and tried to shrink into the grass?

Stood beside a raging stream in full flood, and felt the tumultuous anger?

Just run as hard as you can until your body drops to the ground as you gulp for air?

Stood on the deck of a ship at sea, and just marveled at the stars?

Watched a cow whose calf has died, standing over the body, and watched the tears flowing down her cheeks?

Seen the young colts mock fighting, learning how, and setting up their generation's pecking order?

Held your breath to keep from causing the slightest ripple in a perfect reflection?

Walked the city streets, and noticed the many neighborhoods, some only part of a floor on the big buildings?

Gotten truly lost?

Been rescued just in time?

If you've Never, or something like, have you really lived?
