Share Four Somethings – November Edition

Something Loved

Meditations in Motion

I always love Thanksgiving, but this year was especially enjoyable. My youngest son (he is on the right side of the picture; you can just barely see one eye peeping out from the back row) cooked the turkey, stuffing, homemade Parker House rolls, and mashed potatoes. His in-laws hosted. His mother-in-law (in the front; hugging her mother in the wheelchair) made sweet potatoes, spare ribs, rice and beans, and green beans. I made pies.

We have celebrated Thanksgiving with this branch of our family tree for several years now. Before dinner, after the prayer, we go around the room telling what we are especially thankful for this year. My husband went before me. He gave such an eloquent and touching speech that my heart was in my throat and I had nothing left to say. I managed to croak out “Ditto, ” and everyone laughed.

We had a very enjoyable conversation with my daughter-in-law’s brother and his wife. In addition to having a job in the mayor’s office in Philadelphia, he is forming a production company. He and a partner will produce films where they discuss important matters in order to help young people make good decisions. The first topic they chose to discuss- financial literacy.

My four-year-old grandson is missing from the photo. He was too shy to have his picture taken.

“Good morning. Lead with gratitude. The air in your lungs, the sky above you. Proceed from there”.– Lin-Manuel Miranda

Maybe you are suffering from gratitude overload, but I had to include one more quote on the topic before November ends. I love how Miranda extols us to lead with gratitude. It should be our first thought of the day, our default setting. We can go on to our regularly scheduled programs, our busy lists, hectic schedules, and frenetic lives after we take a minute or two to sit and be grateful for our many, many blessings.

Something Learned

I am in the process of reading The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman. It’s a fascinating look into the minds of our fine feathered friends. Ackerman makes a compelling case that the term “bird brain” is a misnomer.

Corvids, which include, crows, ravens, rooks, and jays, are known to be incredibly smart birds. They not only manufacture tools, which they use to get hard-to-reach food morsels, they are also known to save good tools for future use. Tool use was once thought to be the signature skill of humans and other primates. Crows and ravens can recognize themselves in a mirror and use passing cars to crack nutshells so they can get to the nut inside.

Ackerman describes how an intrepid crow has learned to solve an eight-step problem to reach a food reward. He has not been trained to do this feat – he is a wild crow who was held in captivity for only three months before being released back into the wild.

The eight steps must be performed in a specific order. In the video, the bird seems to take a few seconds to study the puzzle, then he gets to work. It is truly amazing. I don’t know whether I could have figured out the puzzle as quickly as he did! You can watch him here.

Something Read

Meditations in Motion

The last time we went to Colorado to visit my oldest son and his family, Ryan gave me his copy of Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz after one of our long discussions.

Ryan is probably the most well-read person I know. He is knowledgeable about a wide variety of topics. It is one of my great joys to explore his thoughts on religion, politics, the environment, economics, and history.

For those of you who have never read this book, it is a tome. First published in 1894, it weighs in at 589 pages. At first, I thought I would not be able to complete the book. It is somewhat slow to start. I am very glad I stuck with it. It was one of the most significant novels I have ever read.

Set in first century Rome after the death of Christ, Nero, a misogynist and preening narcissist, is the emperor. He has surrounded himself with a collection of sycophants, whose function is to fawn over him and his dubious accomplishments.

The protagonist, Marcus Vinicius, a soldier, nobleman, and member of Nero’s court has fallen in love with Ligia, a young Christian woman. The book tells their story, a nail-biter, and also gives the reader a historically accurate portrait of Roman life in the time of Nero.

I had read of Christian persecution before, but never in this excruciating detail. Without giving too much of the book away, Christians are made into scapegoats by Nero, blamed for the great fire in Rome. Christian men, women, and children are fed to wild animals, crucified, and burned at the stake, while the Roman mob, believing Nero’s lies, howled for even more blood and death.

The calm acceptance and loving forgiveness shown by the Christians toward their tormentors stirred my faith and strengthened my resolve to show the same equanimity in my own life. I tend to be a worrier. As any worrier will tell you, worry wastes time and energy through needless anxiety.

God does not want us to be timid; bravery is called for. He is with us always. The first century Christians described in the book were an inspiring example of faith, which I will forever attempt to emulate.

I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.– Joshua 1:9

  1. I watched the crow video. πŸ™‚ First impression is: that’s a smart bird, perhaps smarter than a human child.

    Thinking further – the narrator said the crow had had experience with each object /stage individually previously. So basically it had previously learned a behaviour for each stage, he knew what to do in each case. That he was able to determine an order with little trial and error ( he did not put the first stone in the right place first time, nor the second) showed intelligence.

    The crow like dogs are highly motivated by the reward of food. Like humans they display curiosity about their close environment and can utilise simple tools. Unlike humans they do not have the disadvantage of worries and distractions that plague our conscious waking hours and can be much more focussed on a task/problem.
    The real question of intelligence though, for crows and machines alike, is what level of consciousness do they have, what forms their drives goals and purpose in life and how do they react to other sentient beings?? πŸ™‚

    • Yes, true. How would we ever be able to discern the crow’s level of consciousness? I tend to agree with the author of the book I was reading – our consciousness came from SOMEWHERE. In other words, she believes differences in levels of awareness are by degree between species.

      • I’ve been trying to understand what true consciousness is and where exactly it comes from?

        If ever atom is made from just protons, neutrons and electrons and we are simply a collection of trillions upon trillions of atoms what do those three things (multiplied nearly infinitely) do to produce imagination and awareness of the self.

        The only thing i can conceive of is that there is an external agent within us in addition to the 3 basic components that interacts with us on a deeply personal level – our soul/spirit and that there has to be a certain ‘level’ of complex integral structure and components to an organism before the interaction can take place.

        I do not yet know if organisms like crows, dogs or intelligent androids could acquire anything similar, or of a compatible level of awareness to allow effective communication between them?

        I love this kind of hypothesising. πŸ™‚

      • It’s definitely an interesting concept. In addition to everything you mentioned, when you look at the tiny sub-atomic particles closely and study their behavior, they don’t behave like particles at all. They behave like energy.

        So, what are we, at the core – matter or energy?

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yeah – it all gets a little ‘hazy’ below the level of an atom, per se. The nucleus particles are themselves considered to be ‘made up’ of sub sub atomic particles – the Quarks – that are more mathematical constructs than what we would consider as ‘matter’ and the electron ‘cloud’ is more of a field of potential energy/probability with individual electrons only existing as particles when an observer or device interacts with them, collapsing the potential energy field down to a probability of ‘1’ at a specified location somewhere ‘near’ a nucleus. ( In a similar fashion to how a planet is ‘near’ to it’s Sun)

        It’s not as cut and dried as my physics teacher tried to describe it back in the 70’s.

        Answer: we are mostly nothing, but the ‘something’ bits are all pure energy!

        As Mr Einstein explained, Matter and Energy are interchangeable – a very great amount of energy is ‘equal’ to a tiny tiny bit of matter.

        I like to think of matter as highly condensed, intensified, ‘localised’, very low vibration energy. Another way to put it is: matter is one end of the energy vibrational spectrum while something like Cosmic Rays are at the other end. (They can pass straight through our planet as easily as they pass through our body!)

        I’m thinking there may be a ‘higher vibrational kind of energy that might be defined as ‘Spirit’ – something too subtle for us to detect.

        Curiously scientists believe that more than 3/4 of our Universe is in the form of undetectable (as far as they know) Dark Matter and Dark Energy.

        Maybe Spirit is ‘Dark’ and not ‘Light’ after all? πŸ˜‰

        I’m sort of withyou on the nature of Spirit, but that woulsd also mean there is more Dark in the Universe than ‘Light’ and that does not sit easy with me! πŸ˜‰

        I think we have a little bit of a biased perception of what light and dark are and our language does not really have the appropriate terms for such a discussion. πŸ™‚

        So if past is particles and future is waves – what are we when we are in the ‘Now’?? πŸ™‚

      • Yes, I agree with you on the language thing. We equate light = good, dark = bad, but that’s not necessarily true.

        I think you would have a hard time defining “now”. What is now? It’s gone before we can even blink. Unless you are Paul Tillich, and believe in “The Eternal Now”! πŸ™‚

      • (Oops! – hit send instead of return!)
        I have said in a previous post that we can live only in the ‘past’. Anything we see happen, or sense as existing, we see only by the light reflecting from it and hear only the sound emanating from it, both of which take a given amount of time before they can be first received, then analysed and then considered or recognised by our brain. This may be milliseconds to years (in the case of the stars), or seconds from a loud noise some miles distant. It is impossible for us to actually live physically in the ‘right now’ – we would have no sensory inputs to represent this exact point in time. By the time we are determining what we think about something or feel about it it has already morphed into a later thing.

        Fortunately for us we can anticipate, with a reasonable degree of success, based upon what we see/think from our immediate past. πŸ™‚

        As for the ‘all time exists at once’ theory and others such as Tillich (his book was published the year i was born and this is the first i am hearing of him??? i need to read that book!) i have not got a clear grasp on that just ‘now’ πŸ™‚

      • Past, present, and future are totally human constructs, I think. We use them to order events. I read once, that a simple organism like a protozoa doesn’t have the “filters” on perception like we humans do -all the human constructs like a timeline. So which organism is seeing the universe as it really is – humans or protozoa?

        Yes, I would definitely read Tillich if you haven’t yet. He’s one of my favorite theologians. He’s not an easy read, but he makes you think, which is the point, after all.

      • OK – you just shifted my ‘paradigm’! πŸ™‚

        Does ‘the passing of time’ only exist if you have the conscious awareness of it happening?

        Do protozoans have the feeling of hunger and determine that it is ‘time’ to eat??

        Do they see it go dark and think it’s time to sleep and wake with the rising sun(light)?

        Does our planet’s rotation/orbit keep ‘time’ for us and determine when is ‘now’ an appropriate time to do certain functions??

        This might keep me awake tonight – thank you SO much! πŸ˜‰

      • Now that i think about it (excuse the pun!) the light and dark semantic: We’ve been programmed to think only of the light we see – visible light – which as you know (being a chemisty (/physics) teacher!) πŸ™‚ is only a very small part of the ‘light’ (EM) spectrum. if we had the organs to suit we would see X-rays or radio waves also as ‘Light’ and what we now call ‘dark’ would be nothing of the kind to us!

        In the Biblical sense i would say Light can also be taken to mean anything that lets us see clearly ( the Truth vs lies, for example) Seeing as God might, with the heart, than more with just our human eyesight.

        So there might be more Light than some may normally consider (like me with my literal, logical mindset) in existence, but by similar measure ( and using dark Matter/Energy in the Universe as a comparison) i think there might still be more of what we cannot yet see than that which we think we can.

        WE can’t fully trust what each one of us ‘sees’ with our eyes. πŸ™‚

        Maybe that’s why Faith needs to exist??

  4. A fellow blogger has been telling me about the intelligence of crows and about the video and the fact that crows put the nuts in the street to have the cars roll over them and crack them for them. This is because Tom Peace and I often discuss the intelligence of birds, as I had domestic birds as pets for many years. Tom has two parrots, Tweetie and Scarlet. with a wide variety of phrases and he plays movies in their room for them to learn new things. πŸ™‚ Birdbrain is not a moniker to label birds with. Your Thanksgiving dinner sounds as nice as you told me about earlier Laurie … it is good to get together with loved ones and share the joy of special holidays. You’ll be doing more of this after the new year with the newfound freedom of “endless vacation days” for you and your hubby.

    • Your post on birds inspired me to leave Benji at home tomorrow when I go for a walk (I will give him his own walk earlier) and bring my binoculars to the meadow down below our house. There was a lot of bird activity when Benji and I were there today, but I couldn’t stop to watch them, because Benji was pulling on his leash.

      I just wrote a post about how anxious I am to have hubby retire. I’m counting the days! πŸ™‚

      • That sounds nice to see all these birds now and because the trees are bare, you’ll get a much better look at them than if they are hiding in the leaves. I miss the cardinals which were swooping down from the trees at the Park to grab peanuts that were scattered on the perimeter path for the squirrels. The look on the squirrels’ faces was priceless – they watched a male cardinal grab a peanut right next to their feet … that took a lot of nerve by the cardinals. They’ve not done that since Spring unfortunately. I’ll go look at your other post now. I remember you said you had activities and trips planned so that will be nice and Benji will have two of you home to have lots of company.

      • I was just about to say that I am looking at your blog and realized that. The cardinals are beautiful … years ago I had a female cardinal living in my barberry bush. I bought some safflower seeds for that cardinal and every night when I came home from work, that cardinal would come out of the bush (and for some time she was rearing her young in there) and fly over to the patio cement and wait for me to bring her seeds. She got a small cup every day. I’d wait while she ate some then go in the house. Made me smile interacting with her … she was like Lassie greeting Timmy. She would see me walking up the sidewalk and she’d fly over. I had to go in and put my bus tote bag down and get her sees … she would wait patiently.

      • I’ll be calling myself the squirrel and bird whisperer one day Laurie. That female cardinal was around for a very long time and I don’t know what happened to her – perhaps the nest was attacked and she moved the location but you’d think she would have still returned. Earlier this year, I was watching several nests of robins. One was in the Park and I documented the chicks until they fledged, and then another nest was in a homeowner’s gutters/eaves. I watched them one day as they were ready to fledge – the chicks sat on the edge of their nest, they were big and crowded in the nest. The next morning I walked by and the nest was empty, but one robin came over to the chain link fence and he was newly fledged (I would say that morning) as has quite wobbly and I wrote about him as I was up close to him and he just sat there taking in all the cooings and sweet talk and let me take his picture. Then, about a month or so later I walked by and he was on that homeowner’s rooftop and came over to see me and I got pictures and did a post. I know it was not my imagination. This is the post where the robin was on the rooftop if you want to see the pictures of it and embedded in this post is the post and pics of the robin “on his first day out of the nest” … those little tufts of feathers … so sweet!

        That is a great project – I’ve never seen pine cone feeders and it will be a natural habitat for the birds – they’ll be ecstatic! You already told me you were giving your grandsons a love for nature and making bird feeders and watching the birds will only fortify that love for birds. You should get them some of the binoculars made for kids. How did you do with your bird visit with the binoculars this morning Laurie?

        My friend Ilene is home from the hospital, but told me she spent all day Tuesday at the hospital, was released Wednesday morning and told to lie flat on her back in bed and no getting up except to use the bathroom. She got up and got dizzy and fell again so back to the E.R. in an ambulance and two more days in the hospital. She is home again but needs to return to the hospital tomorrow for more tests. Very scary!

      • The pinecone feeders were a total success. They are so easy – just tie a string or bit of yarn around the pinecone, smear the cone with peanut butter, then roll it in birdseed. We did 3 of them – 1 for each of us – and hung them up. birds came to them almost immediately. The boys loved it. My solo trip with binoculars was a success too. I had to cut it a little short because my son was bringing the boys over, but I saw downy woodpeckers, flickers, white-crowned sparrows, cardinals, mockingbirds, red-tailed hawk, house finches, blue jays, and black-capped chickadees.

        Thank you for the update on your friend. I am a worrier!

      • That sounds like a real treat for the birds Laurie and the peanut butter is good for them with the protein this time of year. You’ll be able to get pics of those birds at the pine cones too. One year my mom and I strung popcorn, raisins, peanuts and cranberries on carpet thread and laid them on bushes and along the chain-link fence. For years I used to subscribe to “Birds and Blooms” the magazine and they are now on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BirdsBlooms/

        So there was am article that suggested to string these treats and put them out for all the birds. My mom and I spent an afternoon doing this and were excited to see if they liked it and they never ate it – we were so disappointed! The squirrels ate them. You did good with the trip with your binoculars. You have a lot of birds to look at – we have cardinals, jays, robins and sparrows only, the occasional goldfinch at the Park. A few red-bellied woodpeckers which I hear but don’t see very much.

        I was happy to hear from Ilene and she said she’d write more today. I’ve worked in the house and just got here around 8:30 and nothing from her today – don’t know whether she is still on bed rest or back in the hospital. It is worrisome … she did live alone for years after she became widowed in 2009, but now has a niece living with her and her dogs.

      • I really enjoyed the magazine for years but after I had the issue with the rats from the neighbor behind and had to remove all my feeders and birdbaths, I let the magazine lapse. I figured my backyard paradise was no more. Then in 2011 I began the walking regimen. Then we had the first Polar Vortex and I lost countless plants in the yard and it wiped out my butterfly garden so I didn’t put up the butterfly houses and I did not replant the three butterfly bushes. I had alot of Tiger Swallowtails and Monarchs and also Red Admirals, but I did not try to recreate it. That is a very nice magazine with nice pictures and it was always giving ideas on how to entice birds to your backyard. I like to whistle at the birds when I am walking in the neighborhoods. There are cardinals and some robins that will whistle back and keep it up, even flying to the next tree or further ahead until I can’t whistle any more as my lips get too dry from trying. I follow this blogger on WordPress and when I first started following her, her husband had bought her a long lens for her camera and she has different feeders in her yard, plus she uses Bark Butter, which is a type of bird treat which can be bought at Wild Birds Unlimited … it goes right onto the tree branch like peanut butter, but boy is it pricey. But you do attract a lot of birds with it. She has some amazing close-ups of neighborhood birds and woodpeckers that stop at her feeders and trees – so I try to get my “backyard bird fix” through Kathy. This is her site, which I Googled to find it:

        As to Ilene, thank you for your prayers Laurie. I also have a prayer list of people in my daily prayers. This is what I heard from Ilene today (below) and Rebecca is her niece that lives with her, Cathy another niece. This does not sound good in my opinion, and I wrote her and said “please don’t respond to my e-mails because I don’t want you hopping on a sore foot or taking a chance you’ll get dizzy and fall and maybe you should return to the E.R. for a checkup of your head since you’ve hit it twice now.” She is a little stubborn like me. πŸ™‚

        Hi Linda – First time I have had computer on in two days. Was in bed sleeping all morning – can’t seem to get the swelling in my left foot to go down. Cathy called the doctor and got a prescription for Tylenol 3 on Friday – am feeling better, but still far from good. I will either go to doctor’s office tomorrow or to emergency. Yesterday Rebecca had to go to Windsor and was going to ask Cathy to stay with me, but Cathy is fighting a cold. I told Rebecca I would stay in bed all afternoon so she didn’t have to worry about me falling. Am going back to bed soon. Linda – I am sorry for not responding to your other emails yet, but will as soon as I can stay up longer.
        Have a good day.

This woman is a walker and she takes beautiful pictures. In the Spring she had some great pictures of a tree she passed daily and there was an owl and owlets who lived inside the hollow tree and they were peeking out. Carolyn doesn’t post too much, but when she does, her birds and scenery are stunning. This is her home page and she has a slideshow of a few birds – just beautiful: https://skip22037.com/

  5. You have covered a variety of interesting topics, Laurie. As an author, I am not a voracious reader, but I have my favorite authors I enjoy. In fact, I have never read a novel. For my new book, I did more reading of my favorite pastors and authors in researching for the book. The novel you mentioned sounds fascinating, but I’m committed to reading a writing friend’s novel right now. Also, what a beautiful Thanksgiving picture. It is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Thanks for the visit to my site the other day. I appreciate the kind words. I hope you and yours will have a blessed Christmas and Godspeed in the New Year.

  7. Sounds like a very nice Thanksgiving. It is awesome that your in-laws gather together. Of all or our grown and married children, over the years, none of their in-laws have really wanted to interact even though I have offered invitations at the holidays.
    This year after all the years of doing the Thanksgiving dinner, I decided I would only do the turkey and the kids could bring the sides. My DIL and daughter did a great job and I enjoyed not having all the last minute preparations that usually send me into panic mode.
