“Bluebell the Buffalo”

“Bluebell” (Click on photo to enlarge)

Having lost her own mother, Bluebell is now the “wise mother” at Earthfire Institute’s wildlife sanctuary, greeting the visitors who come to observe and study.

Having lost her sister, her friend the goat, and her land, she teaches us to transcend loss, to maintain the “self”–the sacred individual.

Bluebell is sweet, dreamy and not aggressive. She also not a football team; not a symbol. She is Bluebell.
