274Days #92 Everyone Is Beautiful

Beauty Is In the Eye of the Beholder

It’s hard to remember that everything is beautiful to something. When I first saw him I was overwhelmed by his lack of any beauty. But then I was struck by the fact that this big guy had an air about him that told me he was proud. He stood patiently in the heat and watched. His sad eyes told me he was waiting for a mate. Some day soon surely a mate would come along and think this guy to be the most handsome of all. To her he will be beautiful.

This big guy lives at the San Diego Zoo. He seemed content with the hot sun that day, but his barren landscape left him looking bored, counting the days until he would be free again. There were some small antelopes in the pen with him and they simply ignored each other. The antelopes wisely hung out in the shade, but this guy was determined to just stand in the heat, wait for his mate and look miserable.

I do hope his love has found him. I hope she had a map. It’s a long flight from Africa to San Diego. My wish for today is that this guy no longer waits and watches, his love has come and each finds the other to be beautiful.

April 1st, 2012 I hope  you were not fooled in a bad way today.

Until tomorrow,
