Here’s a guy who doesn’t have to worry about the ‘topic of the day’ … more importantly though, he has to worry about where the next meal is coming from. He probably thought I was bringing him white bread. Not so.
As I went to sleep last night, I was thinking about the list of topic suggestions I’d read in The Daily Post. Many of them are so deep and complex that I’d drop them like a hot potato. If my aim for all this was to have heated discussions … then I could have written about «Does everything happen for a reason?» That was one topic a few days back. I think that would inevitably lead to endless, religious discussions and likewise inevitably, the issue with major disasters of the world would be brought up. None of us have the answers so I’ll just leave it at that. Whether I think it happened for a reason or that everything is totally random,can’t be of any interest to anyone. I also have to bear in mind that as I’ve chosen to have a public blog I must be prepared for all kinds of comments and critique. My husband and I have discussed that very topic a few times. I’m not very good at arguing — it feels like I always lose, and I’m scared of conflict. The fact that I’m scared of conflict is something I should bring up with my therapist, if I’d had one and not blog about. Who can really win such a discussion anyway?! It’s all about a very private belief — not about who’s right or who’s wrong. There is no right or wrong here.
As I was falling asleep, this was the topic that was on top of my mind and my thoughts kept on wandering deeper and deeper. Was thinking of all the things that had happened on a personal level and how they, in hindsight, had lead to other things … and how strange that I only could think of the bad or sad things … not the happy events that after all must have occurred. Thankfully, that only lead to one thing: I fell asleep!
On a much lighter note, I saw a Peregrine Falcon yesterday. I’ve been told that there are oodles of them here, and that they live underneath the bridge. Maybe it was the same guy who sat on our balcony, not too long ago 🙂
This was in Marsh Creek. There’s a long piece of land, sticking up in the middle of the whole thing, and I saw something moving … to far away to judge whether it was a gull or something else. Brought out the camera and used that as a pair of binoculars. To my surprise, I saw that it was a falcon. «Surprise», because the ducks in the water weren’t bothered at all … they kept paddling along as usual?!
