Mid-October afternoon, the long, dry season, Maasai Mara, Kenya. The animal herds, thousands in number, are at the riverbank, plotting a way to cross south toward Serengeti. This Mara River is deadly. Many years ago, I had waded across it on foot, keeping a vigilant eye on lurking crocodiles and wary hippos. So I understood the hesitation of the nervous animals wanting to cross. The dilemma, to cross or to turn back? Squeezed in a sheltered gap I waited. Someone wrote that all wisdom is contained in two words, wait and hope. So they waited and waited, tails flicking, ears twitching, looking here and there with trepidation. Then hope kicked in and as their hooves splattered mud on soggy earth and the river crossing began. It was powerful and decisive, their pace compact yet energetic. It felt as if one was about to be run over.
