  •  I love our species (2+ / 0-)

    We are so complex and quirky and just-so.

    When I was young and very stiff and Rational, I considered such behaviors primitive, as if primitive was a bad thing and not a reflection of a billion+ years of genetic grooming. As I lost more and more dear ones I discovered just how primitive I am, Whitman's yawp and Jung's hearth spirits at Bollingen, how much I loved and didn't want to let go of the meat my beloved had been part of, loved it desperately even after the spirit had crossed, the meat I had smooched, hugged, bathed, elbowed, fed, clobbered with chinaberries. When I was young I would've rolled my eyes till they stuck.
