Love, courage, kindness, giving benefit of the doubt, receiving gratitude, humour, the natural world, simple pleasures, social groups, metaphor, dancing, music – these are the flowers of healing – water them, fertilize them, and make room for them.

Hate, chronic fear, othering, dehumanising, lack of frivolity, anhedonia, staying indoors, addiction, isolation, loneliness, literal mindedness, immobility, discord – the weeds of dis-ease – don’t cultivate these, mind they don’t flourish.
