Justin: Greater Than the Beasts, Slightly Lower Than the Angels.
After hours of crying over Ingy, I decided that I must rejoin the real world. So I went to the library and picked up dozens of movies to watch. One of them was to have a momentous impact on my life. I picked up Grizzly Man, thinking it was going to be a horror flick. It turned out to be a documentary about a man who lived among bears.
I was so moved by the desire to return to nature that I packed up 7 of my sturdiest suitcases and sought to live at peace with, but also to have complete domination over, some small part of nature.
For the past two weeks I have lived amongst a pack of Wild Onions. In living with them I have learned to accept a very primitive side of my nature: For example, photosynthesis.
But it is time for me to return to civilization. I have exhausted the mysteries of nature and now I must once more return to my probing the mysteries of humanity.
I thank you dearest readers, for not leaving me, and beg your patience while I bathe myself in preparation for a return to city life.
