Catcher in the Rye and ducks

I barely noticed these sleepy mallards but they had that sweet post lovemaking energy. Inspired by the interconnectedness of all beings, I discovered a kindred spirit in the novel, Catcher in the Rye. Holden is concerned with the ducks in the Central Park lagoon, and wonders where they go in the winter. “His obsession with their welfare during his own dark night of the soul indicates a fledgling but rapidly developing understanding of the interconnectedness with the world” Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy,edited by Keith Dromm and Heather Salter
