Jo Lane4,033Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

it being a hot summer's day, husband suggested we go out for a picnic this evening. we drove out of town with a couple of plastic chairs and a cool box, and sat near a field munching on a cold supper while hearing sheep in the distance and enjoying the beautiful scenery. the sky was doing some very interesting stuff...

... like this, for instance. (more to come. more to come.)

(please forgive my poor little camera for smudging the sun. I could probably have done better if I'd thought about it, but I didn't, and I think it's still pretty enough.)

another interesting tangent from this story:

in that email conversation, my cousin also mentioned how he had worried about his mother's reaction when he started to become religious himself. It struck me as kind of funny the way these "rebellions" worked in different generations of our family - my grandmother and her siblings risking their dad's anger by becoming more secular, and then, two generations down the line, my cousin risking his mother's anger by taking on some kind of religion.

I have wondered sometimes how my dad would have reacted to my own "rebellion" against his atheism... not that it was a deliberate rebellion. just that he wouldn't have been very pleased, and he wasn't all that good at agreeing to disagree about stuff... anyway, he'd been dead for ages by the time I came to faith. I'm pretty sure that if turning in the... more »

sounds like my great-grandfather was pretty cool...

got into an email conversation with a cousin who knows a lot about the family history. I asked him at what stage it was that the family became secular - I knew that my great-grandfather on my dad's mother's side was a rabbi, and by the time I was born my dad was a staunch atheist. I wondered if my dad was the first generation to go that route - did he grow up in a religious household and rebel, or had his parents already rebelled before that?

funny how I'd never wondered about that until now. never thought to ask my dad. anyway, thankfully I have a cousin who does know this stuff, so he filled me in.

apparently it was a gradual process, with my grandmother (the rabbi's daughter) and her siblings not totally ditching the whole thing but becoming less observant, which is what was generally happening among young Jews in Eastern Europe at the time. My great-grandfather, the rabbi, was aware of this but didn't make a fuss, and apparently he developed a custom of coughing loudly when he was coming home from synagogue on the Sabbath, so as not to catch them smoking - basically giving them a discreet warning :)

(for those who aren't familiar with Jewish culture - for those who are strictly observant, smoking isn't allowed on the Sabbath because you're not allowed to light a fire. this is one of the things I remember finding weird back when I started going to church - that there'd be people standing outside and having a last smoke before the start of the service. it was a bit of a culture shock.)

so now I know a bit more about what happened when, and I also know that my great-grandfather, the rabbi, had this laid back attitude and also the imagination to come up with this workaround :)___another interesting tangent from this story:

Very powerful video. I see it as addressing not just what happens online (though online it's seriously rampant) but generally the way women are taught (mostly by other women) that the way they look naturally is not acceptable, but then get criticised (again mostly by other women) for wearing too much makeup or not doing it right.

and also the way people criticise others online without thinking of the other person's feelings.

and also the way we humans generally tend to take our feelings of self-worth from what others say about us.

huge respect to Em Ford for going through such a painful experiment and making herself so very vulnerable.

surprised by tears

just popped round to deal with our neighbour's post and was suddenly hit by - oh drat, there's no noun for this in English, but it's the feeling of missing someone.

she's been gone for months now - gone into a home because she'd developed severe dementia and couldn't look after herself any more. I cried at the time - because I realised that even if we go to see her, the person we'd known wouldn't be there. (as it happens we haven't had the time, because soon after this my husband's dad became unwell and there's been a lot more going on on that front.)

you get used to someone's absence after a while. and it's not the first time I've gone there to deal with her post, though it's mostly my husband who does it, it's only when he's away that I do. (just a question of bringing it inside so that... more »

(just a question of bringing it inside so that passers by can't see that there's no one at home - her post is normally visible from outside if it's still in the door. this is just a precaution for not attracting burglars. she has a friend who pops in once in a while and actually deals with the stuff.)

anyway, like I said, not the first time I've done this, but this time I lingered for a moment longer and was suddenly overcome with this feeling of: I miss her. and tears.

she was a good neighbour. a really good neighbour. friendly. nearly always cheerful, even though her life was very difficult. (severely disabled. needing a wheelchair and people to help her morning and evening. MS on top of the other disability. been like this for decades.)

she's not young, and every now and again she'd have a fall and need to be hospitalised and there was always this thing in the air, the knowledge that one day she'd be gone - but still, it's sad, and I miss her. and there's also this sense of: she's gone but she's physically still alive and there's no formal goodbye.

anyway, just needed to talk about it. thank you for listening.___

random thoughts about empathy and stuff

I'm reading a novel in which the main character is a cold-blooded killer and I'm empathising with him to the extent that I'm deeply wanting him to survive, even though his mode of survival involves killing people and in the last 100 pages or so I've lost count of how many corpses he's left behind, not to mention people he has injured pretty badly.

how did the writer manage to get me to feel like this? (because wow, well done!) (it's a Ludlum, which is very much not my usual reading material but for some reason I felt like trying one. for those who are familiar with his writing, the novel in question is The Bourne Identity. if you've read the book then please please please, no spoilers!

random thoughts about empathy and stuff

I'm reading a novel in which the main character is a cold-blooded killer and I'm empathising with him to the extent that I'm deeply wanting him to survive, even though his mode of survival involves killing people and in the last 100 pages or so I've lost count of how many corpses he's left behind, not to mention people he has injured pretty badly.

(it's a Ludlum, which is very much not my usual reading material but for some reason I felt like trying one. for those who are familiar with his writing, the novel in question is The Bourne Identity. if you've read the book then please please please, no spoilers! I'm only on page 100-and-something and I really really don't want to know what we find out later about his identity and his past and suchlike.)

so, thinking about how the writer got me to empathise with this guy―――

we're introduced to this character in a scene where he is being shot at. we're not told anything about him at that stage. we don't know who it is that's shooting at him or why. we know nothing about his background, his personality, the circumstances that led to him being in that place - nothing that would affect what we think of him as a person in any way. the only thing we know about him at that point is that someone is shooting at him, he is hurt very very very badly, and the question is: will he survive at all?

so we're inside this guy's head and all we know for the moment is his vulnerability. and naturally we're wanting him to survive.

this makes me think of how we react to people's stories in general - whether it's someone you meet face to face, who tells you their story from their own point of view and that's all you know; or whether it's someone posting something online. we hear one point of view and if we're not careful, we react based on just that point of view.

I'm thinking that this guy in this novel is a metaphor. all we know about him to start with is his victimhood: he's been shot at and is fighting for survival. Some fishermen get him to a doctor. The doctor patches him up. We naturally feel pleased about that - we're pleased for this man that he didn't die from those wounds. at this stage we know nothing else about him - which is helped by the fact that he has lost a large chunk of his memory (he was shot in the head) so he himself doesn't know about his past.

As the plot moves on, we've got this guy trying to get to safety and again there are people trying to shoot at him and we are still feeling that natural empathy and we naturally assume that the people trying to shoot at him are the baddies and that he is a good guy...

It's very gradual, the way we slowly begin to get glimpses into the possibility that our guy is not really very nice. Interestingly, there are points along the way where we get those glimpses through his own thoughts - he, who had lost a large chunk of his memory and doesn't know who he really is, discovering parts of himself that he is a bit stunned to discover, like how coolly he decides to kill a person who is in his way.

I'm thinking that's a metaphor too, for something else. But the metaphor I'm more interested in for the moment is the one about how we react to people's stories. We were introduced to this guy as a victim, and empathised with him and felt for him and really really wanted him to survive - not knowing what a ruthless killer he was. And the empathy is so strong that even when we discover that he is a ruthless killer, it's still there.

I'm thinking of how when we hear someone's heart-rending sob story and are really moved, we don't always think about what else might have gone into that story, what factors this person might not be telling us - and it's not always because they deliberately decide to withhold information, sometimes it's because they're just not aware of it.

I'm thinking of something a friend said to me once: there's always three sides to every story - what he said, what she said, and the truth. (obviously it doesn't have to be a he and a she, it just works better that way in terms of the phrasing. basically the idea is: each person tells you the story from their own point of view, and nobody's point of view is 100% objective, nor is anyone's memory perfect.)

I'm thinking that this stuff is particularly relevant to our online lives, where every other day there's some new story going round about how someone did something absolutely terrible and how could they and... and everyone's busy with the righteous anger thing and most people don't look for the other side(s) of the story, because it's a lot easier to just get carried away with the emotional reaction, especially when everyone else in your crowd is.

I'm thinking we could all do with developing some good journalism instincts, and learning to ask: what else is there in this story? what are the things that this person may have not mentioned? because even without lying, a person can easily paint only part of the picture and leave out stuff that would make you go: oh, that totally changes things...

like someone being shot at and you think "poor guy" and then it turns out that the police are after him because he's a paid hitman, for instance.

just some thoughts.___

wow. 4 hours on the phone with my niece. somehow time just flies. (4 hours isn't even our record to date. we did 5 hours at least once.)

eating supper at midnight is a totally reasonable thing to do, right?

Really interesting!

a study looking into the possibility that giving people sedatives after trauma may not be so good for emotional recovery - but it was only a very small and limited study, as this article explains.

well worth the read - good analysis, written in plain English.

Interesting thoughts about the psychology of language prescriptivism - how is it that some can write well but give bad writing advice

(plus lots of fun examples of the passive voice being used really well by people decrying the passive voice)

and today's July Daily Photo subject is glass

again it was a tough choice as I've been playing a lot with glass windows, especially the stained glass windows in church when I get the chance. I just so love the crazy blurriness, the way the shapes outside get smudged beyond recognition.

People of Earth, your attention please...

it is, as you all know, a Thursday. and there's no need to sound so surprised about it. the plans have been on display...

#yellowonthursday  

yellow on thursday is just a fun photo theme, inspired by the Hitch Hiker trilogy. anyone is welcome to play, as long as you don't let the Vogons know what we're up to. (just post photos of yellow things. on a thursday. and use the hashtag.) (your own photos, obvs, or we'll get the Vogons to read poetry at you.)

a bit late for my time zone but it's still 1 July in some parts of this planet... anyway, here's some bold colour for +Carrie Simpson's July Daily Photo challenge. I had a little rummage through my archives when I heard about this, hummed and hawed a bit but eventually settled on these red fuchsias which I spotted when out in town one day.

back in the real world... did you know it's 150 years since this fantabulous book was published? yay! time for a tea party, methinks.

it being a hot summer's day, husband suggested we go out for a picnic this evening. we drove out of town with a couple of plastic chairs and a cool box, and sat near a field munching on a cold supper while hearing sheep in the distance and enjoying the beautiful scenery. the sky was doing some very interesting stuff...

... like this, for instance. (more to come. more to come.)

(please forgive my poor little camera for smudging the sun. I could probably have done better if I'd thought about it, but I didn't, and I think it's still pretty enough.)

so far, so good, but...

today is hot here (by British standards, obviously - to Florida folk this probably counts as winter weather) (26C=78.8F, 20C=68F, just to help the Celsius-challenged among you) but there's a bit of a breeze and humidity isn't high.

tomorrow is expected to be only a teensy bit hotter (going up to 27C=80.6F) but humidity is expected to go up, and then to stay up for the rest of the week. which means bye bye to my brain for a while... I'd better make the most of it today, while it's still functioning :)
