The Brown Wasps by Loren Eiseley shows that humans and animals act in some similar ways He says that humans and animals cling to the things they know very strongly Sometimes they even act as if nothing even changed Humans and animals tend to want to return to things that are familiar to them as they grow older Eiseley shows how humans and animals try to cling or recreate an important or favorite place Some examples are the old men the brown wasps the mice the pigeons the blind man and even Eiseley Eiseley recalls his boyhood home in Nebraska He recalls how the train stations used to be In addition he remembers how all the pigeons would fly around and how all the waiting people boarding the trains would feed them He realizes he is getting older and older everyday He once grew a tree with his father and he acts like its been there the whole time Sixty years later he realizes that the tree that he had been imagining his whole life had perished in its first season He realizes that he is out of touch with the world but then he thinks that it is the world that has changed and not him He tried to recreate the tree in his mind because he never wanted to lose it and it was something familiar to him This tree was grown with his father so it is very important to him The old men at the train stations sleep there to stay out of the rain even though they are no longer going to work The old men knew that the train stations were being torn down but they refused to give it up They are trying to cling to their favorite place to stay They just will not let it go Similarly the mice must leave their homes in the fields because of a new Wanamaker suburban store being built
