He didn't reply. He kept looking at me wondering who is this idiot talking to a bear and expecting an answer. But he did not comprehend the depth and wisdom of my question. He was sitting there in a very large area full of bushes, trees and grass and shade and so on. A bit like being in the wild really. As far as he was concerned he thought he was in his native environment. Not that he knew where his native environment was. He was probably born there where he was. So to him, he was happy at home. Little did he know he was in a zoo. In a closed and secure environment from which he could not escape. He did not care about the fence between him and me. He had plenty of room in which to enjoy life and I was an unwelcome distraction.
I moved on to the rhino; also in a very wide field with what seemed miles of land. Standing by the fence between us I asked him, "Where are you?"
He was thick-skinned and totally ignored me as I was disturbing his lunch.
It was the same with the camel. When I stood by his fence and shouted, "Where are you?" he had the hump, or two humps to be precise, and kept on chewing on something without responding.I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation. And the only explanation I can find. Is the love that I've found, ever since you've been around.
