Silly Starlings

rescued the first starling
about two weeks ago,
out of the barn.
The windows are open just wide enough fot them to get in,
but apparently not enough to get back out.
He was bumping into the window all the time,
was totally stressed out.
It looked like he had a concussion,
and it took about 5 minutes
until his strength seemed to come back.
Hasi was holding him in her hand all that time,
and as soon as she felt that
it's grip around her fingers got stronger,
she released the bird.

And then, a couple of days ago we
had to rescue a Starling out of the extactor in our kitchen.

Last night, Starling number 3!
Again in the extactor ...

Well, I guess the last one forgot to spread the message..!!!

I have to talk to our landlord about that terrible bird trap...

That's the bird trap!


Tomorrow is a big day.
We'll have THE appointment at the horse farm at 11am.
I am confident that things will work out just fine.

It's all about patience.
I start to grasp what real patience is when I observe nature.

I watch our cat sitting some place,
sometimes waiting for hours for the mouse to come out.

I watch the trees that have been without warmth all winter,
standing tall against wind and cold,
waiting for the sun to get stronger,
so they can "come alive" again
and grow back new leaves.

Everything in Universe has it's time and it's place.
I believe that.

I believe in us humans to
be able to
with nature,
with the forces and laws of the universe.

It sadens me that life these days is
mostly about
and wealth
planet and all living and breathing creatures are being sacrificed
for those things.

We get so attached to things
and the money that we use to pay for them
that we get disconnected with ourselves.

We even buy things that we cannot pay for!

Even in times of a HUGE finacial crisis
commercials on TV still try to
make you believe you still can have anyghing you want...

I digressed, didn't I.



ANT'S medicine

If you have Ant medicine,
you eat slowly and deliberabely and
are content in knowing that
"what is yours will come to you".



  1. So true isn't it? I must say, patience has never been one of my virtues. But I can sit a long long time waiting for that perfect photo op!

  2. Yes, that's how I feel too, but i am relieved when i know there are people like you in the world. I have a song about an ant that describes what you said, my Mother used to sing it to me when i was a child!
    silly starlings...haha!
