Thoughts today while signing out a ridiculous number of complex cases on call.
Feathers = fern leaves = muscular striations
Heart = caverns
Lung = trees and root systems
Pulmonary parenchyma = honeycomb of bees
Cracked dry Earth = pulmonary and liver fibrosis
Arteries = Rivers and tributaries
Thyroid micro = creeks with cobblestones
Brain and electrical synapses = stars, Universe, higher conciousness, a spider's web
Our bodies parallel nature. There is no ego. There is no one. There is only collective.
And when it goes haywire, I'm there to diagnose disease. As a placeholder. I'm not unique - others have done it before me, and others will do it after me. I'm just here for the duration, doing the best I can in my brief moment on Earth.
