Today, I realized that if you rearrange the letters of the word "Listen", it spells "Silent".

Isn't that amazing? It was to me.

I realize that I need to be silent, outside (refrain from speaking) and inside (refrain from thinking so that I can really take things in) to listen.

On a totally different subject, I am watching robins through the window, and am noticing again that they are all enormous this year. Super fat. Someone else mentioned the same thing yesterday (after I was already wondering about the fat robins), so it's not just my perception. Does anybody know anything about the super-fat robins? I'm in Colorado, and I'm wondering if this is a local phenomena, or a global one? Has anybody heard anything?


  1. I wonder what is up with all that?

  2. Fat robins here too, on the tip of Cape Cod! You're right, I wonder what it means?

  3. This is such a mystery. Maybe, when I'm feeling less lazy (which could be in the distant future), I'll Google it, or something. Do a "fat bird" search.

  4. I have noticed more Robins with global warming in our area, but haven't thought about their BMI! I'll start paying more attention.

  5. Do that, and get back to us ;-)
