No people in history have ever survived who thought they could protect their freedom by making themselves inoffensive to their enemies.


Gorilla in very little mist. Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne. April 2011.

On our recent visit to Melbourne Zoo, Henry and Ezra were particularly drawn to the gorillas and the orang-utans. The gorillas in particular seemed a great source of fascination for Henry. He has come over all Diane Fossey on us!

In fact, we’re now debating whether or not we might send him off for a year or two to live with the apes.

It’s either that or he spends a week with his grandparents…

The grandparents are waiting for that week to eventuate.
You could ask the gorilla if it would like to stay as well.
