Watching The Birds
It makes me happy every time I can read a blog and leave a comment, even if it's only a little bit at a time so far. Every time is a small step back for me. I'll tell ya, it's a strange feeling to feel effort and discomfort by simply trying to think in a normal way. I usually get headaches and dizziness, and I get so hot that I have to sit in front of a fan after only trying to use my mind. It's really frustrating, but at least not thinking takes no effort.
Still, I feel the need to stretch my horizons bit by bit right now. So I was glad when I was able to go out and sit on my porch for a little while today. There's not much nature immediately outside my house, mainly because of the busy street and all the people around, but there is a small amount.
There were also a few on the rooftops, like the one in these pictures. And a few birds in the trees. They didn't seem to notice me at all. But the sparrows under the car seemed to be very interested in me. I always wonder what an animal is thinking when it shows interest in a human.
I know what we humans think when we are interested in a particular animal. But what do the animals think? Is it similar to our thoughts? I met a deer once that seemed to try to lure me closer to it. Others have been aggressive towards me. I've also had similar encounters with birds.
Maybe other animals aren't as intelligent as us in the way we think of intelligence. But maybe they have an intelligence that is just different. We all say that each person is special in their own way, so I think that can be true for each animal as well. All have something that makes them great. Every species. Every individual.
