Looking into the window in this Magpie Tale
All salient beings peer through a window, at the world outside the fish bowl, or the cake beneath glass.
How many clever monkeys feel the need to save the fish from drowning or the bird from falling?
Salience can bring emotion and even compassion but not always comprehension. Eyes meet and lock but do not always share a common understanding. Predator or pretty, cake or wolf?
The wave of a hand, two chimpanzees hugging. We only meet at the edge of spaces; light is only precious during dark intervals.
