Thoughts

 

 

Alligators all around.

Julie Gordon

You know when you’re at the zoo looking in at a caged animal, and you marvel at its otherness? That’s how I feel when I see mothers and daughters together. It’s like wondering how a snake can just slither by. Or laughing at a lion for its lackadaisical grace. Or being envious of a bird for its ability to take flight. I just can’t make sense of the distance between us. I know we share a world, a closer world than the animals do, but somehow it feels like we’re different species and all I can see is the space between us and not the connection.

I’m not sure what else to say. It simply is. That’s my deep thought for tonight.
