as a child, a fascination with a beast of legend
pouring yourself into your studies
a high school diploma and a 4.0 GPA
an acceptance letter
years of your life getting a BA, MA, and eventually PhD
stagnation, then
a research opportunity in Equatorial Guinea
a chance to bring years of study full circle
a plane ticket
a crowded jeep and a muggy day
a path by the river into the jungle
a flash of movement
gently pressing aside the foliage
a rustle
a moment of indescribable awe
the humble
goliath frog
