Hello my friends,
Thanks for stopping by to say hi. I feel the need to take a break from news about back pain and tell you about a baby giraffe that was recently born at the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
You might think that this story is about Giraffes because I’m an Alexander teacher. After all, we deal with the poise of heads on top of necks. They are graceful and they have amazingly long necks that have only 7 vertebrae – just like us. Did you know that?
The truth is, I’ve always liked animals and Giraffe have always fascinated me. I went to high school in San Diego and visited the Zoo frequently.
Giraffes are so big and so shy. They are gentle creatures with huge eyes, the longest eyelashes imaginable, and incredibly powerful, fast legs. Here are fascinating facts about Giraffes.
On a recent visit to San Diego, I went to the Zoo with a friend and we saw the Giraffes. I don’t know if it was Debbie the Giraffe who gave birth shortly thereafter, or another one, but it is an amazing process to witness.
Here’s a video. I can’t believe the baby falls six feet as it’s born, and survives.
