Milestones are an important way to solidify relationships.
Neanderthals likely celebrated (or dreaded) the sun’s rising as a sign they made it through the night without getting eaten.
Neanderthals likely (as if i have any clue) also celebrated the sunset because it meant they survived another day without getting eaten.
The paradox of this is they also likely feared the sunrise and the sunset. What’s to celebrate when you know the entire day will be spent looking over your shoulder, or sleeping with one eye open and one ear open.
Neanderthals were part of the food chain.
And they were a long way from the top.
Evolution brought breakthroughs like knives made from bones, spear heads made from stones. Over millenia, the smartest and strongest survived.
Modern day neanderthals (that’s us) now have a microscopic T-Rex and Saber-toothed tiger, Covid.
And little ole me is reflecting on the 40-year anniversary of my Disney hire date.
