Yesterday my sister told me that okapis and giraffes are cousins. I wonder how zoologists know that. Is their DNA closely tied, or do giraffes just regularly show up at okapi family reunions, invited or not? On a similar note, I’m sure you’ve noticed, retrievers of all sorts must be family, the way they greet one another on the beach like old familiars, racing and rolling and play-wrestling within moments of spotting each other way down the stretch. I wonder what sort of reunion we will have this summer, and whether it will be surprising finding out where one’s dearest weathered the spring Crisis, and what they loved creating in those quiet months and what they were missing most, and how!
