Yesterday on Friday Favorites I posted a poem called The Panther by Rainer Maria Rilke. It was new to me and I fell in love with it. (It’s now tied with Dog’s Death by John Upton as my favorite poem of all time.)


In the comment section Harula from wordsthatserve posted a video about a black leopard: The incredible story of how leopard Diabolo became Spirit – Anna Breytenbach, “animal communicator”.

I gotta tell ya I got a bit overwhelmed and teary watching it. It was pretty incredible seeing the respect Anna Breytenbach had for that magnificent animal. So I’m blogging the video today so others will be able to see and wonder at it, too. And thank you, Harula, for thinking to share it with us!
