“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood
I’m not surprised by the “recent scientific news”
that dirt makes you
happier and smarter; now we know this,
via mazing mice:
inhaling or ingesting Mycobacterium vaccae
stimulates neuron growth and boosts serotonin levels.
Old hippies everywhere, rejoice!
Grandmothers, our memories of you are vindicated;
you really were warmer and wiser.
The sun is out; gotta keep this short.
I’m off to find happiness in my own backyard.
