Dear Debbie and other organlearners,

You are very perceptive. But remember, it applies to the hunting of
succulents - openhearts. If you want to hunt big moving game, you must
move faster and with greater deception like a lioness on the kill. She
covers 100 meters, crawling on her belly, in grass which barely hids her
back, in less than 4 minutes. (To see it will give anyone the shakes like
I had. I was glad that I was not the prey.) She seldom misses her target
because she has to provide for the family.

Best wishes
