Monkey Ink Sketch
This monkey amuses me. Many monkeys amuse me. Some seem cute, and some, not quite so cute. I think the squirrel monkey is one of the cutest. The proboscis monkey is possibly one of the monkeys that I could not call cute at all. When a youngster, I once briefly knew and loved a monkey. He was a cute little pet of the family of a ranch-hand who worked for my grandfather. They kept him in a large cage most of the time, but one day, he got free and escaped out onto the farm/ranch. The poor little monkey was never seen again. I liked to imagine that he was living free in those wilds and that he was happy in the life that he had finally chosen. I feared that he had come to some harm (else why would he not have come home to his family?), but I tried hard to imagine him happily ever after nevertheless.
