Completely out of the blue I lost the use of my hands just after Christmas. As a result the last few days have been tough. I’ve had amazing support and care from my friends, family and medical professionals. But I’ve also found comfort in an unusual place – the pooing habits of bears.
I wrote last month about a new ticced song which goes like this:
“Oh bears, why are you so non-conformist when you poo?”
Since Boxing Day whenever I’ve felt sad, scared or in pain I’ve sung myself this song and it’s made me feel a lot calmer and more focused.
It’s simple, both melodically and lyrically, but its soothing effects shouldn’t be underestimated.
