A lion's mane

 “At most, a hundred paces separated him from them. The powerful beast, seeing the riders and horses, rose on his fore paws and began to gaze at them. The sun, which now stood low, illuminated his huge head and shaggy breasts, and in that ruddy luster he was like one of those sphinxes which ornament the entrances to ancient Egyptian temples.” ― Henryk Sienkiewicz,

I love lions.  Their large golden bodies, their growl that shakes the antelope, their bravery that spooks the buffalo herd,  but mostly I love the lion's mane. It's quite something to catch sight of, how it silhouettes and curls around their heads. I've always thought the lion's mane to be one of the most ethereal images of the animal kingdom. 

Sadly, I'm one of the unlucky ones who has only seen a lion behind bars in the zoo.  Have you ever witnessed a lion in his natural home? The lion may never lay down with the lamb, but one day I'll wander to the plains of Africa to visit the lions.  Mind you, I'll keep my distance. I think antelopes run much faster than me anyhow.

When I came upon this lion shirt, I actually roared with excitement. If you can picture that!   I thought it must have been designed by a lion tamer who also cares for a flower garden.   If you look closely into the flowers, you'll find hidden animals. So far, I've found a rabbit and a bird!

Well, I've got a million thoughts running around my head, and a to-do list that seems to be climbing faster than an annoying weed. I'll see you soon!

    Safe sex with Bangalore call girls.
    Most men don't feel comfortable while they are with escorts, this is because they fear the sexual diseases that they can get from the ladies. But with our high-end escort service in Bangalore, you do not need to lose your mind about that. We maintain the stature of our agency by keeping our ladies in the right health.

    For the sake of their good health, the ladies must visit a doctor every month for full body check-up. In these check-ups, tests are run for any STDs (Sexual Transmitted Diseases) so that the clients stay healthy and fit for more action. And by chance, any of our ladies have the STD, she's immediately given rest to recover from the disease. After she has fully healed, then only she is allowed to please more clients. This rigidity of our system is what makes us the safest escort service in Bangalore.
