Relative minds

I had another visit to Edinburgh Zoo, today, driving a small group of students and their teacher to participate in a busy day of workshops.  I had some time in the crisp cold to watch the chimpanzees,  Capuchin monkeys and penguins.

Spending time near the primates in particular, I felt a strong sense of how similar we are, with many shared needs, desires,  objectives; albeit differing in detail and complexity. It was almost a physical sensation of parallel experience.  I found myself wondering,  what are you thinking ? What are you preoccupied by at the moment?  What are you experiencing? What is your own untold, and untellable, story?
