Wednesday's Wisdom: Observing the Little Things

A few days ago (June 9th 2017), I posted a clip of Connie Chung interviewing Marlon Brando (in 1989) on my personal FB Page. During the interview, Ms. Chung asked Marlon Brando what he had been doing since he "left" the acting profession.

His answer? "I've spent hours and hours watching ants going up and down my sink, picking up the crumbs, finding where they come in from - they come in to get away from the cold weather..."

I can't say I've spent hours and hours watching ants in my home, but, I have observed them interacting with strawflowers (AKA Helichrysum bracteatum )which grow in my rooftop garden.

An example of this can be seen in the first photograph atop this blog entry. This particular image is included in both the digital,

and softcover,

version of Words In Our Beak Volume One.

The book makes a great Fathers Day gift, and that holiday, will occur in just a few days from now (Sunday, June 18th)!

In any event, while Brando has confessed to spending hours and hours watching ants, I admit that I've spent hour and hours watching a fledging (who is a European starling) making discoveries in my garden (as seen in pictures directly below).

European starlings are merely introduced in Words In Our Beak Volume One, however, much detail re them will be discussed in a subsequent volume. Stay tuned.

ADENMENDUM: The versions (digital and softcover) of volume one within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but a hardcover version of volume one can be found wherever books are sold.

Moreover, Volume Two of the book series is now available! Both volumes one and two are in hardcover format (as seen below) and can be purchased any place where books are sold.
