Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Monday eh? No, I know it’s Tuesday. But I just can’t figure out where the entire day of Monday went, haha!

Here’s some of the miscellany from the last few weeks:

I’ll share a nice little didactic story I read recently. A family member was commenting on certain personality traits of some people in his life a few days before I read this, so I think that’s why I paid attention to this story.

The Parable of the Hedgehogs: In the winter, the hedgehogs were cold, so they gathered together to stay warm. But they kept poking each other with their quills. They decided to separate, and all went their own way. But then they got cold again. They came back of course. ‘Tis better to suffer the occasional pokes and pricks of others than live a lonely existence without the warmth and companionship of friends.

Miscellaneous photos of sea lions, seagulls, and pelicans from our December trip to San Diego. A local woman we chatted with said she’s never seen so many pelicans there before:

I thought this plant was so interesting. We have nothing like it where I live. Let me know if anyone knows the name of it!

And lastly, I learned some NEW Latin words: Nulla dies sine linea.

At the university where I work, we get a monthly newsletter-type email. This month it introduced me to this phrase, which inspired me to keep up on my 23 for 2023 list I made, and the many other NEW things or goals I want to do this year. I think I’ll make myself a “Don’t break the chain” chart with Nulla dies sine linea as the title.

That’s it for this week’s miscellany. Have a great day and go do or learn something NEW!
