Poem: "Debugging the Brain"

This poem came out of the March 6, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] janetmiles , [personal profile] we_are_spc (Isaiah), and rix_scaedu. It also fills the "understanding" square in my 1-31-18 You Are card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles.

Birds in Snow

Here is a lovely video of birds in snow, billed as Dog TV, that runs 8 hours.  It doesn't say in the video, but the location seems to be UK based on this page of garden birds.  The European robins are ubiquitous and I spotted the jays around 30:50.  Video is credited to "Wildlife in Cornwall."

This kind of thing is all over Terramagne; it's easy to find long tapes of beautiful nature scenes.  Some quiet rooms show this kind of programming, as the nature sounds help cover up background noise.  It's very soothing for most folks.  Back when I was doing homework, I used to play nature programs in the background, because the subtle changes of sound helped me stay awake; this would've worked better.

The fishbowl on Tuesday went well. I have more sponsored poems to post soon.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Always Repay the Cost" belongs to the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan and Dr. Infanta threads of Polychrome Heroics. Dr. Infanta gathers what she'll need to heal Fiddlesticks.

"Time to See What I Can Do" belongs to the Shiv thread of Polychrome Heroics. Luci decides to work on her pirate queen costume at Blues Moon.


The weather has been variable here. Today it's partly cloudy. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a large flock of mourning doves, several cardinals, some dark-eyed juncoes, two grackles, and a squirrel. Leafing out: crocus, blue grape hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, miniature iris, peonies. In bloom: snowdrops, eranthis.
