The culture of the San Bushman of Kalahari focuses on love. When a bushman wakes up in the morning and sees a little bird, they look into each other’s eyes with a moment of recognition forming a thread between them. Over time the Bushman gets to know the bird’s ways of life. He observes that the bird is male, has a beautiful song and is feeding and tending a female bird while building a nest for babies. One day the birds are very upset because there is Mongoose nearby. This reminds the bushman of hyenas that come around the camp and the people in the camp shout. We all worry about our children. Over time the thread of connection becomes a string, then a cord, then a rope. What it means to be a Bushman is to make ropes with everything; the animals, the birds, the insects, the wind, the stars, the sun, the moon, the ancestors, the unborn and one another as human beings. The Bushman say that these ropes are made of love.” –  Jon Young
