Animal Souls

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

Our prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday was “soul/sole.” Linda said to use one, use both, use ’em any way you like and to Enjoy!

I’m reminded of that kid in high school English class who said, “Animals don’t have souls.”  I have no idea how it came up. Maybe animal souls were in a poem. But it still makes me angry. How the hell does he know?

I thought about this soul issue back then in high school. Being all into science at the time, I developed a theory that the power of the soul corresponds to the conscious awareness of the individual. Or maybe that was in college when I took the psychology of consciousness. Anyway, how do we measure conscious awareness? We can only judge by human standards, unless we can somehow step outside those standards – open up to the possibility that beings who’ve lived in a very different environment, like dolphins and whales, would likely have a very different way of perceiving, or being aware of their own consciousness.

Elephants grieve for their dead. They stand watch for days or longer. I believe elephants have big old souls.  There’s this video of an elephant saluting or waving (human/cultural perspectives) after one of the herd’s young was saved by some humans. I’m going to look for the video. Be right back! The video title is:

“Wild Elephant salutes the men who rescued their baby elephant from a ditch”

There are actually at least two salutes at the end of the video. It’s unmistakable. An expression of gratitude. The humans pushed dirt into the ditch for the baby to stand on and climb out. They’re trying to be careful. Notice the communication between species at the end. At the very least watch the last 2 minutes.

 

 

Quite a reunion! Makes me want to hoot and cheer and maybe get a little teary eyed. But then, I get teary eyed easily sometimes.

So does this mean elephants have souls? What difference does it make? But I believe that if humans have souls, elephants do, too. And dolphins, cats, and dogs. Anyone who doesn’t think dogs have souls can stay away from me to put it nicely.  I bet if we spent a lot of time with elephants, we’d all believe in their souls. I mostly know about dogs. When you look in a dog’s eyes and see them smile, and they sleep on your bed with you, you know they have souls. Crazy souls some of them. But maybe bigger souls than some people. And that’s all I’m going to say about that. Except that it’s a good thing my soulmate loves dogs. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t be my soulmate. And it’s a good thing for him I love dogs because this crazy soul hound is my step-daughter.

Celebrating SoCS with Kermit and Kool & the Gang

Daffodils in yellow glass by the window (3)

From Our Fearless Leader Linda G. Hill:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cele-.” Find a word that starts with or contains “cele” and use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Today we are celebrating five years of SoCS! I don’t know if I’ve been here the whole five years, but close it seems. Don’t know if I’ll look it up. I’d rather just celebrate. Time flies when you’re having fun! Or time’s fun when you’re having flies! In which case you might be a frog.

kermit times fun when you're having flies

It’s not like I’m having loads of fun. But I’m glad there are not many flies or mosquitoes around right now. Not yet, anyway. But spring is on the way, and that’s something to celebrate. Bugs and all.

One way I like to celebrate, besides going out to eat, is to dance. I don’t dance much in public – rarely do I do that – but I like to dance in my living room. Soon, I will be celebrating back in my own home. I will not say when, but it might be in March. The electrical is done, the walls are up and almost ready to paint, and the bathroom is tiled. I will dance in my own living room. In the meantime, I can dance in the living room that was my parents’ as I listen to the vinyl records on the old turntable. I usually listen to the Moody Blues. That would be slow-ish dancing I guess. Have to find something to dance to….

Congratulations to Linda Hill for five years of hosting the Stream of Consciousness Saturday adventure! You never know where the stream is going to lead. Thank you, Linda for our prompts that bring us together – weaving all the streams together here in Bloglandia at your place.

This is the first “celebrate” song that popped into my head. It’s got a good beat, and it’s easy to dance to.  😉

 

 

That “Happy” song came on after this. I’m dancin’ now….  Dancin in the stream…

PS. You wanna know something cool and surprising? I didn’t realize until this morning when I did some research on Kool & the Gang that they did the song, “Joanna.” I’m pretty sure I sang some of this in the mirror during my lonely years.

Do you have a song you sing to yourself?

 

 

Hey!  Did you know the Muppets have a version of K&G’s “Jungle Boogie?”

Trek through the SoCS Vortex

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

Today’s prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Linda said to: Talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!

Before computers and the internet, television was the only addictive screen. My dad watched TV a lot, and at certain times of my life, I have depended on TV for company, entertainment, and maybe even to get through big life challenges.  Star Trek may have saved my life, or at least kept me off the street during my confusing adolescence. As I’ve shared before, Spock was my first crush. Dependable, rational, competent. I try to remember this when I see these qualities in my husband. But my husband smiles more, and it’s okay that I’m the flower child.

Star Trek drew me to science, up to a point. Maybe it helped me do well in school, though I was already a “good student” except for a few blips and detours….

Since I only have basic cable now, the closest I can get to Star Trek on TV is The Orville, on Fox.  It’s like ST but with Fox humor which can sometimes be stupid, though I’m willing to overlook it, and the last episode was more serious. I’ve started reading Star Trek novels which could become addictive. Just finishing up one about the Voyager crew. Voyager and Next Generation were my favorites. I liked the strong female roles. When Next Gen’s first episode came on TV and I heard Patrick Stewart say, “To boldly go where no one has gone before,” instead of Kirk’s “where no man has gone before,”  I hooted and cheered, “YES!”

Star Trek offers possibilities of hope. The themes are about overcoming challenges, teamwork, diversity, and hope. I think those are the things that have always drawn me to the show which is more than just a show. We NEED those values in the world. Okay, there is an element of escape – to go boldly, to explore new worlds which I would have trouble doing in real life since I get motion sickness at the drop of a hat.

Television, like the internet, has a lot of crap, but it also has a lot of good that can inspire us to become better than we are, or just enjoy some healthy escape. If we are selective, we can learn cool stuff from television. For example, did you see that big disc of ice in the river in Maine?  Maybe it’s a message from our future, or aliens. Or maybe the river is trying to tell us something by making the shape of the earth.

They said the temperature changes create a vortex. Vortex is one of the Star Trek words. Where there’s a vortex, there’s always something important going on.  (Except that it would make me nauseous in real life. )

Star Trek has always been mind expanding for me. I like that they deal with ethical dilemmas. My favorite episode, or one of them that made a big impression, was “The Devil in the Dark,” where the so called “monster” turned out to be just protecting her babies. Of course it was Spock who found that out with a mind meld. He was the real hero of the show.  “The Devil in the Dark” was also Leonard Nimoy’s “favorite episode,” according to the title on this video.

Thanks for letting me go on about The Trek again. Maybe the future will have better remedies for motion sickness for the vortex travels.

SoCS: Art on the Wall

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

Today’s prompt is “art.” We are to write about something handing on our wall or in a museum. First let me say a big THANK YOU! to our hostess Linda Hill for picking one of my favorite topics as a prompt and also for all you do in the SoCS world.

I’ve loved art since I was about ten and drew dogs and horses all the time. Didn’t think it had as much value as science so went that way, sort of, in college. But now that I’m retired I can do more art. Except that art is more on the back burner with the house stuff going on. I have a sketch pad sitting on the coffee table and have sketched stuff for the house. That’s going to change.

Normally I have too much art on my walls, if that’s possible which anything is. But since we had to take “everything” out of our house for re-wiring which was supposed to start a few days ago but hasn’t….. Grrrr, the walls in our Wilmington house are bare. I do not like bare walls at all. I do not like them Sam I Am.

I’ve brought a few things from the house that is in renovation to the house that was my parents and hung them on the walls. There’s the painting I did  years ago right in front of me right now as I type.

reaching for horizon w frame

Do you see the two figures reaching for each other? Can you tell what they are? I didn’t plan them, they just appeared, then I enhanced them. I love it when that happens.

Another piece of art on the walls here at the house that was my parents’ is a reproduction my mother loved. It’s not really my style, content wise, etc. But I know she loved it, so I hope I can find a good home for it.

wall art mother and child

I mean, it’s beautiful and sweet, but it’s not something I would normally hang on my wall. I am really working on de-cluttering and have sooooo many family photos, etc. and art to consider hanging when we get back home. I will give this away to someone who loves it. Or I could donate it to the church for the spring yard sale. It’s not a big problem though. It’s a joy.  But it’s one of those things that meant a lot to my mom, so letting it go will be one of those griefy things. There’s another wave. But I can handle it.

ART is such a blessing. Can you imagine… no don’t. I am thankful for art, for color, paint, sculpture, drawing with a stick in the sand, photography…. it just goes on and on with all its possibilities. Infinite possibilities of color combinations, shapes. I could go on about it for hours. Thanks again, Linda.

My sketch pad waits patiently, calling softly.

Wanna  see more of my art? There’s a tab above for that.

The Cedar by the Sidewalk

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

 

Sap runs through your veins

I would take a sip if you offered it,

But this is your blood.

I’ve seen it drip when you are cut.

Should I prune you?

Should I separate the branches

that hang low over the sidewalk

From your trunk?

I’m sure if I asked you and you told me

You would prefer not.

They say it’s good to prune trees.

It’s something we humans

are supposed to do.

I will not ask you.

I will ask my love

To cut the branches

Hanging low over the sidewalk

When I’m not looking –

When I’m far away,

And you are sleeping

While I sop applesauce

with my pancakes.

I’m sure the neighbors

will be happy.

 

squirrel in cedar tree

A squirrel sits in my untidy cedar by the sidewalk.

And one more thing:

natural wonders of trees

Thank a tree.

 

 For today’s SoCS prompt, Linda gave us this list of words or word parts to use as we see fit:

sap, sep, sip, sop, and sup.

She also told us that SEP stands for someone else’s problem. I suppose the cedar limbs hanging over the sidewalk are my responsibility, but to be honest, they are only a problem for people taller than me, or when it rains a lot and they hang lower, or occasionally snows which is every couple years. Anyway, I hope David does the deed during the winter when I suppose trees are sleeping.

SoCS: Rejoice! Conditions and All

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

Here’s something new! Today’s prompt for Saturday Stream of Consciousness is:

“ask someone else.” Either ask someone for a prompt word or, if you can’t, turn on a TV or a radio and choose a word from the first sentence you hear. 

(Linda Hill)

It’s new to me anyway. Stepping a little outside the box, I decided to ask for prompts on my Facebook author page. It was an experiment since I believe FB suppresses business and author pages so we’ll buy ads which so far have not worked well enough for me… but I did get two prompt suggestions, so I’m happy.

My first prompt for which I am thankful was, “Rejoice.”  It’s the word in one of my favorite Christmas hymns. That word I often/sometimes have trouble hitting the high note on. O Come, O come, Emanuel….. REJOICE! REJOICE! Emanuel shall come to thee o Israel. Emanuel means God is with us. REJOICE!

The second prompt, for which I am also thankful, was “Conditional.” Hmmmm. Interesting. Go ahead and REJOICE, as long as no one gets hurt. Rejoice all you want, but the dishes still need to get done and the trash needs to get put out. But wait! what if we can and do rejoice whilst we are taking out the trash? Like I rejoice when I donate stuff. Rejoice to be lightening the load. Jesus lightens my load. Why not rejoice in the midst of conditions? I rejoice that I know how to be conditional.

I knew that if I ever married again, it would be conditional upon finding a partner who loves dogs. Okay, he loves me, too but that kinda goes without saying. He also had to respect me.  Respect was a big issue when my daughter was a teenager. I would listen to her on the condition that she not yell at me and speak with a respectful tone. My love for her was and is unconditional, but my listening had conditions. My presence had conditions. If someone yells at me or is disrespectful, now I can walk away if only to another room. I can limit my time with people who are toxic depending (conditional?) on how toxic they are. I can love someone from a distance.  Occasional distance if they are a little toxic. Big distance if they are frequently toxic. I rejoice that my daughter is respectful and doesn’t yell at me anymore (not that I can tell) cause she’s grown and out on her own.

One of my goals for 2019 is to buy a house in the mountains so I can visit my son and his family more often. This is somewhat conditional on selling my parent’s house (the house that was my parents’). It’s a flexible condition. An ideal. Some conditions are negotiable and some are not. When I sell the house that was my parents’ I will be a little sad. I will probably cry. But I will also rejoice! When I buy a house in the mountains, I will rejoice!

Feeling how you will feel when you get your heart’s desire worked for me while I was looking/waiting for my soulmate.  I imagined comfort and joy.  Rejoice for all the blessings coming your way – with or without conditions. Rejoice anyway!

SoCS: Not So Hairy Times, Bald Armpits, and a Donation Rush

FA8B561A-59CA-4E63-8F22-815B036DD1A4

Today’s SoCS prompt is, “hairy.” I’m typing on my little phone since my laptop will only tell me it needs a new cooling fan. We ordered one and will take it to Staples for inserting when the fan gets here. So this post might be short,  and I’ll likely be slow in responding. Maybe this is God’s way of keeping me from spending so much time on the internet.

I just had to take a breath. It took a long time to type that first paragraph. My laptop will be appreciated when it comes out of hibernation.

But back to the prompt!

“Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair….” Can I post a link to the musical on my phone? I’ll come back to that.

This could be a hairy time, having to move “everything” out of my house for the re-wiring. Thank you to Joey at Joeyfully Stated for the encouragement to not think too hard about it and that thinking about it is usually more hairy than doing it. We were also discussing hair over there as in women having to shave legs. Sometimes I think that’s a conspiracy like high heels, but let’s not go there. One good thing about menopause is that I don’t have to shave under my arms (my armpits have gone bald) and I rarely care about shaving my legs. I do need to keep an eye on facial hair though which is weird. TMI? Too bad. It’s SoCS.

Something not obviously related but that makes the whole de-cluttering thing less hairy is that I’m really getting into donating stuff now that I’m DONE with estate sales. I got a big rush after taking a big load of stuff to the thrift store that benefits survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. It was a giggly, high-five to myself rush. I got a little rush donating a smaller load a couple days later. This could get addicting – the donating- not the typing on my little phone. My hand hurts and I need to take a break.
