* Here's a note:
Every living being on earth is an organ of one thing: DNA. It pitches in to maintain life just as every cell and organ in your body pitches in to keep you going.
Some forms of DNA eat other forms alive, some eat the freshly dead, some eat the long dead, some eat minerals, some make light into food. Each one, to some degree, directs its own evolution. Root hairs and rhizomes and mychorrhiza … egads! Trees and fungus cooperating!
It's all a system to keep LIFE going and growing. Even the #@!# Coronavirus is part of this. Humans, dare I say it, have not been so greatly beneficial to this living web. We don't know our place. It would be easy for me to say humans are expendable, but I have loved some humans and I would hate to see them wink out. That would be such a sad, sad day.
And my noisy moral:
Be kind to yourself, to each of your cells; stay clean, eat wisely, think of the ENTIRE cycle when you eat (do something useful with your excretions!), treat the mayfly with as much love as you treat your cat or dog or goats or milk cow or the deer in the field. Treat the people around you with respect …
And if you or a loved one should get the Coronavirus, use Western Medicine ... strengthened with the knowledge that you can speak to your cells; encourage them to stand strong, to hang in there, to regain health. Some of us will die, but let us not let anyone go without our attention, respect, and full efforts to heal.
