The Thing That Happened

This is a story the younger me was always too embarrassed to tell anyone. I decided to write it in Medium for submission to Michael Pollan’s “Trips Worth Telling.” It was rejected, for what will become obvious reasons. Despite that, it’s still a good story, and says a lot about who we are and what we can do, so i decided to publish it anyway.

The Elephant Celebes by Max Ernst. Oil on canvas. 125.4 x 107.9 cm. Tate Gallery, London.
