Walking Flesh Breathing Spirit

Breath, she tells me, travels around the world and is shared. I breathe your breath and you breathe mine. Do you have an illness? I do and it is only curable by death.

We are due, he said, for a great correction. The human race has found diversion in every possible baseness or triviality. The great correction may come. What will your view be of it?

"Can you see?" I asked her. "Not well", she said, "I have fear." She was doing dishes and talking shallow. It is why I asked. She wants to see of course, and I am more blind than she, so I was not able to help much. We did pray though. There is a swing waiting for me, and a Book and a yellow pad. You may hear about it. You may not. You may create your own.

"Butterflies" I told her, "have a conflicting task this time of year. They must hide from preditors and at the same time attract mates." This can cause insanity. Bright colors attract mates. The shapes in which the colors are configured give the illusion of eyes and may scare away creatures who wish to eat but do not wish to be eaten.

Poisonous animals have a toxin in their body (or in some parts of their body)
which may kill or sicken an animal that eats it, bites it or even licks it.
Monarch Butterfly: There is no hope or protection against this dangerous animal.
Poison Arrow Frog: The bright coloration of the poison arrow frogs warns predators that they are poisonous. Once a predator has even licked a poison arrow frog, it gets very sick and will never try to eat one again. The poison protects them from most predators (except the snake Leimadophis epinephelus, which is immune to the frog's poison).
Pufferfish: Many parts of the blowfish (including the liver, muscles, skin, and ovaries) contain an extremely strong, paralyzing poison called tetrodoxin. This poison is about a thousand times deadlier than cyanide. There is no known antidote for this poison. Fugu (torafugu or fugu rubripes, Japanese pufferfish) is eaten in Japan, but is only cooked by specially-trained chefs who can minimize the amount of poison. Even so, many Japanese diners have died from eating this poisonous delicacy.
Queen Alexqandra's Birdwing: This is the biggest butterfly in the world. The Queen Alexandra's Birdwing has a wingspan of 1 foot (30 cm). This huge, poisonous butterfly lives in the rain forests of Papua, New Guinea.
Toads: Toads have poison glands (called parotids) behind their eyes, a chubby body, and shorter legs than frogs. Toads have no teeth, and most toads have warty skin. The largest toads are over 8 inches (20 cm) long. Females are larger than males.
When will I see you again?
Will any of you brilliant savants fix our comments?
