The peruvian donkey
2009/02/14 § 2 Comments
The donkey is a mysterious animal. In the last couple of days I have been observing donkeys many times. When it was raining and hailing like there were no tomorrow the sheep, who were covered with a white layer of hail, had begun taking cover and the dogs were hiding away, while the donkey was standing there seemingly without even taking notice. The donkey seems to be a creature not affected by its surrounding, which sometimes is mistaken as stubbornness. The truth is, a donkey has no drive on its own. It is not stubborn it just can´t be bothered. Contrary to its cousin the horse, who takes any opportunity to eat when left alone, the donkey even seems to do this life supporting and necessary activity reluctantly. It seems for a donkey is “in the zone” constantly. It seems as if the donkey is the most “zen” animal of them all. Hail the donkey!
