The word kind meaning type or variety, which you have noticed I have used with some flourish, is among the delights, for it puts the kindness of carrots front and center in this discussion (good for your eyes, yummy, etc.), in addition to reminding us that kindness and kin have the same mother. Maybe making those to whom we are kind our kin. To whom, even, those we might be. And that circle is big.
Through kindness we extend our kin. We can open our arms wide and consider everything kin, for what isn’t. From people to animals to insects to trees to mountains to landscapes and so on, and so on.
