For the Love of a Lion

A remarkable video showing a lion hugging and nuzzling his trainer.

Who, after watching this, can claim that animals have no feelings? Impossible!!

About Lynda Lehmann

I'm an abstract painter and photographer with a passion for color and the forms of nature. Even as a child, I felt awed by the wonders of nature. As an adult, I know that my love of beauty has inspired my life. My photography is realistic, but my paintings are abstract. In painting, I'm drawn to subjects of ambiguity and mystery, more than to recognizable scenes, and I love the freedom and musicality of abstract work. To me, it's more fun to see 'what isn't' than to see 'what is.' I have shown my art in numerous juried group and solo shows in the New York area. You can view my paintings, nature photography and digital art at my sites. Please visit my "Peripheral Vision" blog at to see a listing of my art sites and links to my articles and writing about creative process. I'm now selling my art on a wide of array of great Zazzle products, and you can find them at my five shops, with more to come!

    This clip was heartwarming in a couple of ways. The lion/human interaction was beautiful and so touching, and as I listened to the report something was tickling at my memory. When the newscasters came on screen I realized they were my old newscasters from where I lived in Orlando for twenty years before moving away one night with a suitcase when my marriage went bad for the last time I was willing to take it. I never got to say goodbye to my old home and flew to DC the very next morning to escape that man….. and after 5 1/2 years this clip really tweaked my heart.

    There are things about my old home and old life that I miss… and this was one more reminder. Thanks for posting it.

  2. I could sit and look at your work all day. What a nice break from the monotony. Very cool blog.
