Bipolar has a strong fraternal genetic line across my family, I have cousins,uncle/aunts, sisters, probably my Dad - but he had PTSD so who knows, and one sister was diagnosed bipolar then they changed to personality disorder.....all I know is it was a crowded house of loopiness growing up.....since nobody was diagnosed or treated until years later...crazy seemed normal.
Came to books thread to post for @Mr Stickyfingers
....about street libraries and books in the wild....
Books in the wild .....is book crossing website, you pick a book, register it online, print label, paste in book and leave the book somewhere...on PT, bus stops, train stations and airports are popular....it can be fascinating as your book could travel the world.
I found one in St Kilda, it was so thrilling, shame the book sucked,
Here is the website...
What is BookCrossing?
BookCrossing is the act of releasing your books "into the wild" for a stranger to find, or via "controlled release" to another BookCrossing member, and tracking where they go via journal entries from around the world. Our community of passionate, generous book-lovers is changing the world and touching lives, one traveling book at a time. We hope you join us!
And Street libraries
Street Libraries are a beautiful home for books, planted in your front yard. They are accessible from the street, and are an invitation to share the joys of reading with your neighbours.
Street Libraries are a window into the mind of a community; books come and go; no-one needs to check them in or out. People can simply reach in and take what interests them; when they are done, they can return them to the Street Library network, or pass them on to friends.
If anyone has a book or two that they think others would enjoy, they can just pop it into any Street Library they happen to be walking past.
They are a symbol of trust and hope – a tiny vestibule of literary happiness.
And of course.....Doctor fans are involved....
The Longueville Reading Time Machine
Some place in NSW, is it near you????
The website has little libraries you can buy, build etc, but also a DIY plan on how to build one.
Love the TARDIS that is an old wardrobe...
