Today was hectic. Or yesterday now. Which reminds me that I’ve been awake for more than 27 hours now. Yesterday was the brain stage you see. And that’s the major reason for any insomnia.
Neuro-anatomy was a strange experience. Before, the Head & Neck was interesting, but a bit dry. There was no mystery. No fear of the unknown. No point where you wondered what would happen if things had happened differently. Nothing that couldn’t be reversed to a great extent.
But enter the cranial cavity and it’s a whole different story. There is exhilaration as you piece together the way you think. The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you live your life. Clues scattered everywhere, that lead to a trail, which disappears deep into the forest. Only the brave dare follow.
It’s so full of feelings for instance. All the explanations of everything people do, the reasons behind the drive of life. The basic urges, the emotions, the reactions. And it all morphs into a very beautiful little being that we all are. But once again you’re reminded of the fragility of the body, and within it, the mind. Suddenly everything seems so breakable. So many things seem probable to go wrong. Danger lurks around every corner. A feeling of insecurity grips you as you feel helpless in the face of the monster that is not nature, but manmade. The world was so much simpler when the only vegetables you knew were the ones you could eat.
On the way back home, I was surrounded by babies. It felt like a mini-baby shower. Babies are toxic. They make you smile. They make you fling non-sense right back at them. They make you draw your muscles of facial expression derived from the 2nd pharyngeal arch and innervated by the 7th Cranial or Facial Nerve, into every possible ridiculous manner, all to lock those smiles.
I’m rambling again.
There was a huge man who sat quietly in the corner. He looked a bit like this.
Too bad he didn’t have a Leia on a chain.
Oh and I passed the stage. 60. J.Jay's fuming. :)
