Near yet far. Loving a person is bone-breaking. Even having explained at length, even having appealed to the five senses and behavior, sometimes there is still no understanding. For example, I have a feeling that sometimes I can trust a dog more than a person. If no matter what people still can’t understand each other, it makes me want to connect with some living thing even more distant from human beings, one whose communication potential is unclear. A “shark,” for example.
