“I elected to write this piece because it afforded me a chance to use a colorful discussion that happened in Prescott, AZ to cast a wider net across a simple question of humanity. I tried to use a kaleidoscope and transition from the very near to the broader effects of our encounters with one another. Sometimes the colors up close do not come in to focus until we take a step back. One of the things I quite enjoyed was the fact that the monkey story is supposedly true of a village in Senegal. I spent a few weeks driving around marveling at how our different experiences in our respective villages can pretty much be distilled into common streams that we all have to drink from.”
