A trip out to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND brought me to the lands of buffalo and prairie dogs as well as incredible landscapes, sometimes being able to see miles away in every direction.
What do I, as an organizer, take out of this? Well.....again....my mind wanders....First off I'm fascinated by prairie dogs - how they communicate, what they do underground, heck, what motivates them to come above ground....Thanks to Nat Geo I now know many of the answers.
What I really want to draw attention to here are not those amazing prairie dogs, but the connection I found between the mounds of buffalo poop and the cactus that would pop up here and there in the mounds. For every "fertilization" there can be a positive response. Life is kind of like that. Get pooped on? Make something good come of it. Learn a lesson (the hard way sometimes), or find a new direction that you might not have taken prior to the experience. Kind of a "life gives you lemons make lemonade" thing. You can do it!!!
Oh, and in case you're wondering why I don't have a picture of said cactus blooming out of said pile of poop - I was heavily warned by my fellow travelers that I best not get out of the car in an environment of loose buffalo!! Evidently they aren't as passive as they appear. Instead I took this picture on a hike far from any buffalo. Still, it shows evidence of a beautiful bloom in what appears to be a barren environment.
