THINKLINGS

Published January 5, 2021 by Nan Mykel

I DON’T like to think of canine pets as “dogs.” It doesn’t seem right. And of course the word for female canines is even worse…I found some warm quotes about canine pets at  Konrad Lorenz on Google. “The bond with a dog is as lasting as the ties of this Earth can ever be.”

AS A CHILD I thought I might become a detective when I grew up because I could tell the good guys from the bad ones so easily…. (The good guys wore white hats and the bad ones, black hats.)

ONE SURE NEEDS a lot of faith in the miracles of evolution to avoid belief in intelligent design!  I’ve been doing some “escape” reading in Grammatical Man by Jeremy Campbell (Simon and Schuster (1982), and the concept of information theory is just beyond my ken. It’s exciting, however, to think that the unconscious rules of grammar pre-dated the acquisition of language. Some think it’s true for music and even numbers.  And to imagine what kind of communication scheme Neanderthal engaged in with his burial customs, etc., grabs the imagination. Interesting that child prodigies can be considered mutations from a hypothesized biological process yet not from the influence of a past life. (Not that I believe that; I’m just messing with you.)

SPEAKING OF messing, I wonder what precipitated our president to mess his pants on the eve of the runoff election in Georgia today. Gee, and on January 6 violent conspiracy theorists from all over the USA are invited to party wildly in Washington at 11 a.m. on the day the vice president is scheduled to present the results of the electoral college to the senate.

HOW ABOUT a way to inform bloggers that one of their followers (or those followed) has died? I’d like to leave an obituary that my daughter could enter so blog friends would know why I’m no longer writing. Writing a cheerful obituary would be a challenge.

  • Nan, good meanderings. As for your last post, my mother’s health caused me to delay a visit with my wife to California to visit a blogging friend. Unfortunately, he passed away. His wife went on his blog and let us know of what happened. Otherwise, it is hard to know. By the way, he named his blog after his pet dog Barney. Keith

      • Nan, my brother and I text each other about the latest musician, sports star or celebrity who passes. One of our blogging friends told me about Gerry Marsden (of Gerry and the Pacemakers) passing. So, when a blogging friend passes, it is hard to know. This same blogger and I have worried about a couple of blogging friends. It turned out they were recovering from illness or surgery. But, you just don’t know. When the wife of the blogger who passed let us know, many of us sent comments about what his words meant to us. Keith
