Man is in the Forest

Last night I was in Auckland and able to watch a Japanese children’s television programme on NHK. I have no idea
what this programme what about but I was intrugued by the way this deer, Sika in Japanese, had forks for antlers.

(The line, Man is in the Forest, comes from the Bambi film. Bambi was the first movie that I ever remember seeing and it’s been on my mind lately because I’ve been writing some biographical material. In it I describe how it was a raw movie of love, death and loss. I cried when they fled from the forest fire and Bambi’s mother was shot by hunters. Man was the enemy, the destroyer.)
