A message from the past

When I think of humanity 4,000 years ago, I don’t think of them having a good time and laughing. I think of them hunting and often fighting to survive. One day while hiking in the Valley of Fire in Nevada, I found a very old rock painting… a petroglyph. It showed a dog sniffing another dog’s butt. I laughed and could not believe it. I imagined the person who painted it 4,000 years ago showing his friend and both of them laughing and holding their bellies. Then I imagined the entire tribe showing up to look at the picture and they all laughed, even the uptight members of the tribe laughed. They laughed long into the night as their fires went out and everyone fell asleep with a smile on their face. This gave me a new perspective of our ancestors and it gave me great hope for humanity.
