Corvidos are known for their intelligence, adaptability and powers of cognition. They also have an excellent abilty to communicate. Birds have developed a part of the brain called the hyperscriacum. This structure is not present in mammals. Birds use the hyperscriacum for higher reasoning. Cordvids are among the birds with the largest hyperscriacums. In addition they have very high encephalization quotients (the ratio of the size of the brain in comparison to the size of the body) close to that of humans and dolphins.
I'm a girl who has grown up and lived in a world of words. Numbers make no sense to me, the only counting I actually enjoy doing is counting how many books I already have or how many books I want to read.
Physically, I live somewhere in the greater Manila area, Philippines, and attend school at a small school often stereotyped as a school of spoiled rich kids only. But in my mind, I live in places real and imaginary...or rather, imaginary to all non-initiated but very much real to those who know how to use their imaginations. Depending on my moods, I've lived in Middle Earth, traveled thru the Vale, Riva, Drasnia and other Eddings lands, relaxed in Avonlea, P.E. Island, struggled thru Cutter Gap, Tennessee, roamed various random castle towns in England and Wales, visited Winterfell and King's Landing of Westeros (but don't tell anyone else that I visit these places!!) and wandered thru the many other places that have captured my heart.
Riversleigh and its environs are where I go to exchange little gifts and stories with my fellow Imagination travelers that come to roost here, where we can bide a wee, away from the mad and maddening world. While it is always nice to travel the worlds by ones self, it is even nicer to find kindred spirits to share these worlds with.
Books and travels, the search for new places and new people to be friends with, those encompass who I am, beyond my physical appearance of a short, coppery haired loner student.
My blog is my little online "magick box" where I can store my tries at various creative efforts and share the little everyday stories of my life as an intellectually wandering gypsy, a la Sara Stanley or Anne Shirley, if even if I don't do it as eloquently as those two girls, (yet).
In my blog, I also love sharing music, quotes and poetry that catch my heart. Looking at the list of things I share, my tastes may seem to be all over the place, with no particular single theme, but the over all unity perfectly describes me as a person. I take aspects from the many possibilities that a person may have and using these disparate elements, I make my own identity.
