Yellow: Stand in the woods with me
I require absolutely zero prompting to stand in the woods. Although I probably won’t be standing still for very long, because I will see a mushroom or bug. And really, isn’t a biology field trip really just communing with nature on its own terms?
>>isn’t a biology field trip really just communing with nature on its own terms
Quite the opposite, I was thinking. Communing with nature would involve opening yourself up to it to some significant extent, which some people can pull off okay but would be a bad idea in my case given that nature and my body clearly despise each other; meanwhile, a biology field trip would involve–for me, anyway–a minimum of three (3) pieces of PPE (pollen mask, two-piece mosquito-net suit).
But I am all for learning Neat Bug Facts and Neat Mushroom Facts, just so long as none of the many, many poisons out there come into contact with me.
#god I miss living on a planet with a fully breathable atmosphere #I was never *big* on communing with nature but my current level of cut-off-ness is excessive #(I was at a gardening class recently and the guy was going on about Mother Earth nurturing us and all that) #(and as he was talking I could literally *see* bits of toxic pollen drifting along in the air beside him) #(it would have been amusing if it weren’t so infuriating) #reply via reblog #allergies #biology #mosquitoes #poison cw? #juxtaposition
