A calm looking fellow....deceiving. Hippos are known to be cranky and unpredictable animals....and a lot of tonnage if you get one pissed off, probably particularly out of the water.

And, day by day, the world darkens....even as Spring comes, flowers bloom, and temperatures warm (a bit too fast--we know the reason for that). Zoom seems to be the way people (myself included) communicate. We can see faces...and safe...and we need community however we can get it. We need each other.

I think one of the gifts of EPZ is the sense of community and communication around the world...even knowing that most of us will never meet in person. Pretty amazing.

Really, it's amazing to hear news from friends in EPZ, from all over the world, everyone's problem these days, to say some words each other. It's a real human society.
Wonderful reflections, a superb image, Peter!

A wonderful image of this docile Hippo but I wouldn't startle him or her.

It certainly has brought some people together. Our liar in chief continues to lie, and to call it the Chinese Virus...our xenophobe in chief. Fortunately he is not our people.

If we were not before...this seems to really make us a worldwide community...all dealing with the same problem at the same time.
