What this allows is time to read on my Kindle which offers soft light.
I finished Dawn Prince-Hughes wonderful book, Songs of the Gorilla Nation. I could not recommend it more. I've always felt a resonance with gorillas, have sat and communed at our local zoo and the Wild Animal Park. This book gives a wider sense of what we might share and what we might do to ensure the survival of all beings.
I also read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. It is fiction but also gives a fascinating account of how another person perceives this world we share. I think over-stimulation is becoming an issue for many of us, as we navigate a world rampant with advertising. It offers an opportunity to explore how each of us perceives.
How do we respond to over-stimulation? What is it for the sensitive among us, and how do we use the gifts of all?
I sit here now looking out. A bee is sipping from a rosemary flower. I am fed.
