When the guide, Fred, said, “don’t look in the eyes of the lion, all you’ll see is dead ponies and unicorns,” I waited till Fred glanced elsewhere and then I looked directly into the eyes of the lioness who was sitting not 10 feet away from me. Fred was right. That’s exactly what was in the lion’s eyes: dead ponies, dead unicorns. And now I’m an addict, I can’t stop looking.
Who are these animals we share the planet with? What are they like? And what’s it like to try to look at them? Please come along with me as I muse on these topics, and feel free to muse along with me.
