All my life I have had a fascination with the beauty and grace of cheetahs, as they are by far my favorite land animal. Watching this video floods my senses with a feeling of freedom, all because I am in a strange way, running vicariously through the cheetah. You can see the sheer power in the lean muscles of this beast as it pushes off and launches itself forward, seemingly flying through the air. Tell me you don’t see the smile on her face from the pure joy she feels at wielding such power. The only other animals I hold in higher esteem are birds of prey, the majestic wind creatures of the sky.
I thought of Covenant’s “The Beauty and the Grace” when I first saw the cheetah video. Unfortunately we can’t play them at the same time, as the cheetah video doesn’t have a mute/volume option. 😦
