In the Monkey Forest in Bali, I saw a mom-monkey with a little toddler-monkey. The toddler monkey was repeatedly trying to escape from his mom, and every time his mom would silently pull him back by his tail with the most calm and gentle touch. Her aplomb was remarkable. Then, I turned my head and another monkey mama was screaming shrilly at her baby who managed to escape. I felt so human and so primate walking hand in hand with my two-year-old daughter.
