The top picture was taken of him right at the glass. He looked straight at me and I barely had time for the camera to partially focus before he moved off.
The word “gorilla” comes from the history of Hanno the Navigator, (circa 500 BC) a Carthaginian explorer on an expedition on the west African coast to the area that later became Sierra Leone. They encountered “a savage people, the greater part of whom were women, whose bodies were hairy, and who our interpreters called Gorillae”. The word was then later used as the species name, though it is unknown whether what these ancient Carthaginians encountered were truly gorillas, another species of ape or monkeys, or humans.
And that is your lesson for today. I had 77,700+ words yesterday, but I decided to move things around and that cut 1500 words out, so I’m at 76674 now and revising to the end, then doing it again. It’s ALMOST finished. 🙂 Billionaire, that is! And now it’s getting fun. Because now I can add the really fun details in each of the scenes and not worry about getting the whole book written. Because it’s already written. 🙂
Off to work on it. Have a great day!!
