Kinship with all of life and biophilia…impressioning the bipolar and PTSD unconscious
Everyday things don’t seem so everyday when I take a little time out of each day to say hi to the flowers and insects. I killed a spider yesterday for the first time in a very long time as he was really big and in my bedroom. I’m sorry Mr. Spider. I think you are in my vacuum cleaner. You may have escape as I did not see you get sucked up. I usually leave you alone and have the sense that you have just as much of a right to be here as I do. This time, I took power over you, with a small upright Bissell vacuum. Next time, stay out of my room. You were actually in my laundry basket. What were you doing in there? So I guess it’s kinship with all of life, except the unfortunate spider that flew out of my laundry basket. Nature is super healing, unless it has 8 legs and is in places it doesn’t belong. I’ve been out of the hospital for several weeks and nature seems to help. And luckily, it’s free!
