It seems that females frustration with insensitive males is everywhere around us. Even my wife is quick to confirm that it is a fact and entirely true. So, one hopes that driving to remote places will take one’s mind off such stereotyped assessments.
But then you happen to stumble upon a pair of tree swallows going at it, where the female (on the left), is flapping, and twittering, and calling at the male (on the right), with no success whatsoever. So, I’m looking at them and cannot help but asking myself, is there a lesson to be learned here? Are we putting, deliberately, sharp edges between us and them?
I drive away with no clear answer but still able to hear the frustration.
