Fact #4: Lobsters not only feel pain – they can anticipate it and learn to avoid it. Just like us. In fact, these misunderstood creatures are so sensitive, they can become anxious and ‘comfort eat’ (sound familiar?) How much do you have in common with lobsters? You might be surprised … 6 incredible lobster facts: www.AnimalsAus.org/PqE

I love lobsters so much seeing them on people’s plates is horrid

We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.

the most unattractive quality to me in other people is constant belittling of what means a lot to others. being contrarian just to be contrarian. people who love to play devil’s advocate. a kind of smugness about everything. an air of being above everyone because you don’t care about anything deeply like the people you mock
