Raven – crow

Crow and wolf

friends, forever,

you are my brother, my kin

we wander and forage together

I  see above the trees

you bring foes to their knees

together our life begins

no enemy will be let in

Wolves and crows have long been known to socialize.  A crow/raven is smart, and  wise, often acting as a scout, when they are out and about together.  Amongst themselves, the black bird will share with friends, and spread the word when it finds something to “crow” about.  Ravens are said to activate the energy of magic and links it to our will and intentions. When we accept the Raven/crow,  we are helped to take unformed thoughts and to make them reality.

One of my earlier stories featured, Rocco a black crow that came into our lives, and with his strong personality, he took us on some wonderful adventures in a forest not far from our home,  It was with his guidance that I met the most interesting “personalities and characters” that dwelt in the forest, on the floor and in the trees.

Imagination is a wonderful blessing.  Through the raven I have learned and heard many stories come to life within my inner realm of words.  What is it about the crow/raven that fascinates some yet totally repels another.  No one really knows.  I find them to be my kin, I love their conversation, and their opinionated calls.  When they come together to enjoy some social time, they can be very lively and vocal…. when they are deep in thought and searching, their silent energy can be intoxicating, for they focus with determination, and fly with their radar on.  All their sense in alert mode.  They remember friends, and know their foe.  In a study done it was determined that the New Caledonian Crow can make inferences about the behavior of hidden animals in its environment, an ability previously observed ony in humans (Los Angeles Times)

They can be ornery and loud, but who can say they are never loud or get ornery.  For me, when the crows come back and begin to tell their tales, I know that spring is on its way.  Always they come back, they crow, they call, and when I finally appear, they tell me of their holiday, and I smile from ear to ear, .. they have so much to say.

362a2e5c57715554d428ea5b20027b59A friend asked me the other day.. what was I reading, I replied I was reading the Jewish Pleasure Principle by Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka.  “No, that isn’t what I meant, aren’t you reading a “real” book”

Now  having  known this friend a long time I knew what she meant, she was asking if I was reading a “leisure” book, to her the hardcover, was not “leisure” but a text-book.  A publication that speaks of formulating a Judaic approach to pleasure,attitudes to suffering, depression and mourning etc.was not her idea of “leisure”.

However the reading of a good stimulating journal that explores  and attempts to put balanced perspective through an investigation of primary sources, to me…. is interesting and I enjoy my discoveries.   Pleasure itself cn be viewed within the framework of the totality of life.  As a writer, I thrive on reading what someone else has put to paper, especially on topics that I find thought-provoking and interesting.

Yes I do enjoy a good  novel, where the settings are exotic, or can stimulate the gray cells into providing me a dreamy far away place where the drama of someone’s life unfolds, casts a spell and has me in that world for days until the story ends.

I had an interesting conversation with a young lady the other night, she boldly talked to me about intimate moments in her life, and I took it in and listened.  She spoke of loneliness and I flashed back to my younger years, we all live the same emotions in our own way.  We are not all story tellers, but we are characters in or own “stories” (lives).  How we play out our days, and create our endings… now that is another story.

cabin on the lake by D.Rogers photography

oh…what a find the perfect place to be…………….uh huh….. not for me….  what….. the water, the privacy the quiet cabin in the woods by a lake.. nope….  I would find this stifling, I wouldn’t like the dampness, or the bugs.

Tree house perfection

No, this is for me, open, bright, small, with just enough place for  1 maybe 2, but up near the clouds where the mind can explore and where sight and sound have no  bounderies. oh man…………….yesssss

Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing…. enjoy …. take it in….  make it yours…..
