Hoarding >> Hoarding And Housecleaning

There are clouds in the painting, of course. Almost any one of us would have included those clouds, thick with electricity and rainwater. And there is the wheat field, smudged out like an empty palm, orange beneath the storm-stricken sun. Surely, many of us would have insisted on the wheat as well. Through the middle of the wheat, a rutted road slices to the horizon and Hoarding And Housecleaning disappears beneath the clouds. 

Even I, a scientist, would have included the road. A storm like that demands a road. Without the road, there is no hope at all. But then there are the crows, Hoarding And Housecleaning the one true hint of what had been and what was to come,fistfuls of them, flung into the swirls beneath the angry wet anvils. All that the painter had lost, irretrievably lost, he put inside those crows.

Van Gogh died because of an instant (or a lifetime) during which the portrait of his life appeared worse than the portrait of his death. Died because his pictures filled up with crows. We call that a behavioral disorder because we imagine healthy people don't see the crows, Hoarding And Housecleaning healthy people don't choose death over life. 

And we say that behavioral disorders are caused by "mental" diseases to distinguish them from "real" diseases,infections, tumors, broken bones, burst blood vessels, polio. Real diseases are diseases of the body.We do that,Hoarding And Housecleaning razor medicine off at the neck,because people such as René Descartes and Pope Urban VIII contended that the human soul resides in the mind, and human disease resides in the body. 

Sometimes because of that contention, we believe people with mental diseases are less genuinely ill than people with somatic diseases. Sometimes we even believe that people with mental diseases and behavioral disorders suffer more from weakness of spirit and Hoarding And Housecleaning flaws of character than from genuine disease. 

Beneath our collective breath, we say that the crows are inside their heads, and having said that, we imagine that the crows are not real.Uncle Henry had a habit of leaving his fly unzipped, Hoarding And Housecleaning completely unzipped, regardless of who might be around to notice. My mother, his sister, hated that. Henry's underpants were usually urine-stained, his shirt tails hung out of the opening in his pants, and he had a propensity to yell, "shit" and to spit for no apparent reason. 

Mother hated that too. And because she imagined that Henry's eccentric behavior was concrete evidence of his total disregard for others, especially her, mother raised up a little hatred for Henry himself. Over the years, Hoarding And Housecleaning that hatred blossomed inside her and bore seed.I don't think Henry ever noticed how much mother despised him. 

At times, I'd watch him look at her with his sea-blue eyes, and I'd see something back there in the hollows. Whatever it was, though, it wasn't shame, resentment, anger, Hoarding And Housecleaning or even understanding. Henry's been dead now for more than 30 years, but mother still gets angry whenever I mention his name. I don't understand that. 

Henry, I imagine, tried mother's patience at times. But I'm certain he never intended to haunt her for 3 decades after his death. In fact, I don't think Henry intended much of anything, at least not toward the end.Mother, though, is still tied to Henry, Hoarding And Housecleaning years after he cut his ties with everything and was laid to rest. 

And if she could explain today why she so despises Henry, mother would tell you it is because he was dirty and crazy. What she wouldn't tell you (but you might discern if you listened to her for a moment or two) is that had Henry cared to, he could have stopped being crazy, Hoarding And Housecleaning just as easily as he could have stopped being dirty. 

Filth and craziness were just his ways of getting to her and making her life difficult.Instructional Film,Scene IA bucolic panorama somewhere in, say, Nigeria. The sky is first-morning blue, and Hoarding And Housecleaning a breeze tinged with wood smoke is ruffling the tall grass. There are cattle in the grass. A few are grazing, but most are standing or lying down lazily swatting flies with their tails. 

At first, the cattle are the only animals we see. But as the camera zooms in, we notice that the grass where the cattle sit or graze is home to brown ants and a few land snails, Hoarding And Housecleaning which at first glance seem in danger of being eaten by the cattle. As we watch longer though, we see that both ants and snails stay low enough in the grass to evade the foraging ruminants,idyllic, mutualistic Nigeria. 

Fade to black.Instructional Film,Scene II The camera's eye reopens a few miles to the north. The sun has fallen beyond the horizon, Hoarding And Housecleaning and the breeze wrestling with the grass has cooled. Most of the cattle here are grazing. As the camera closes in, we notice something oddly different from Scene I. Below the cattle, many of the ants have worked their way up the shafts of grass and appear to be waiting for something. 

As we watch in cinematic magnification, a pink tongue, large as a python, wraps itself around several insect-encrusted blades of grass, and brown ants (lots of them) suddenly disappear behind a huge set of cud-scarred teeth. Again, fade to black. Let's consider, Hoarding And Housecleaning for a moment, what we have just witnessed. In Scene I, the ants are cautious, responsible, and sane. 

In Scene II, the ants are none of those things. We are tempted, briefly, to say that the ants in Scene II are mentally ill. But we don't say that, because we don't imagine that ants have minds,at least not like human minds,so by definition, ants cannot be "mentally" ill. True or not, our belief serves a purpose; Hoarding And Housecleaning it cuts away some of the gauze that surrounds behavioral diseases in humans. 

That's useful because the ants in Scene II clearly are crazy, Hoarding And Housecleaning whether we are comfortable with the words or not. They have climbed where they know they shouldn't have and remain there in reckless disregard of the danger. They have lost the ability to care for themselves and seem to no longer value life more highly than death. 

These ants are insane, deranged, Hoarding And Housecleaning imbalanced, nutso. Men and women who behave similarly line the lavatory-colored halls of our country's mental institutions from Passaic to Seattle.
