i had no idea birds and grasshoppers breathed so differently from us!
Me neither! That's why I stashed it.
I thought of breathing as a universal thing to life, and it's not.
amazing. truly. i love learning stuff like this because it reminds me how little i actually know!
You like to be reminded of how little you actually know?
yes, i do! it always makes me laugh and gives me a sort of "how beautiful" feeling that releases me from all pressure to know it all.
there is just so much going on... and i like to be reminded of that!
The good news is that you live in 2014, a time when it is impossible to know it all.
That hopefully also gives you a sense of calm.
yes. sometimes it's nice to just sit back and observe calmly as the world spins and spins...
Thank goodness the world spins slowly.
