Here, we see a Weka bird chasing after a butterfly. So intent on this intriguing, fluttering presence is the bird, that it's about to run right off a cliff! Still, it's a bird, so it shouldn't come to much harm, right? Its instincts will kick in, and it will take flight. Except that the Weka is a flightless bird! This card, like traditional images, is still a reminder to temper our curiosity with our natural instinct for self-preservation.
Today, I start a three-day training on nutritional interventions in people with eating disorders. It is the final part of the course I started over two years ago, and which led to me stopping being a vegetarian. I had to delay this last part by a year, due to work commitments. Now, after all this time, I wonder how these three days will affect me... I shall try to stay open to whatever may come.
I am grateful for new beginnings.
