Photos From The Brazilian Amazon
“Is it dangerous to plan too much? Yes, we all need to plan, to have a plan, but life goes on regardless of our plans and we know only too well what happens to so many of the best laid plans of mice and men!” Leslie W.P. Garland
I spent six months planning and researching a trip deep in the middle of the Brazilian Amazon. It wasn’t easy to find a tour guide that would go there and logistics during the wet season were difficult. I thought I had finally done it. But the randomness of life is always a challenge. Though I tried to plan a trip where I could control my health issues, I could not control the unforeseen twist in the path that came too late for me to do anything about it. Fate often has its own ideas. “Mann Tracht, Un Gott Lacht” is an old Yiddish adage meaning, “Man Plans, and God Laughs.” These photos that I did not take, of a trip that i did not get to go on are to beautiful to not share.
At my brother Neil’s funeral the rabbi put it this way: “If you want to make G-d laugh, tell him your plans for the week-end.” Sorry you didn’t get to go on the trip, but those sure are great photos.
