Creekside Reflections

Taking time out to reflect on the natural beauty around us is a gift that photography, if it’s done right (like Cee’s) gets you up out of your chair and outdoors exploring. Hope this weekend there are colorful spots like this in the woods or fields or gardens around you and moments of pleasant reflection.

Last week’s SYW started us off on a two-parter, with Share Your World meeting the world of Harry Potter. This week we have as usual Melanie’s muggle-themed queries alongside those of Roger, this time invoking The Chamber of Secrets.

Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what animal would you like to speak to? What would be the topic of your first conversation? 

Naturally, I’d like to be able to speak with our house pets: we’ve had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish, and a snapping turtle that we rescued from a flood as a baby and set back in the creek after wintering with us. When they’re injured or sick, it would have been nice to ask them where it hurt so the vet could treat them more efficiently.

More fancifully, my answer would be: BIRDS! They always seem to be chattering to one another in such a cheerful mien. I’d like to start off by asking them to let me hear all the songs they sing to God, from the very beginning. It could take a long time. But I expect I’ll have eternity. 🕊️

Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick and owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer.

The Dra-Gon: because deep inside this fearsome exterior is a heart of gold, waiting,

to unleash its awesome powers which are innumerable

and jostle one another for supremacy

until they are needed in the hour of greatest need

against that villainous monster, MALADORK, the unnameable but named all the same.

Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember?

I would want to remember everything good that I ever forgot.

Also, I would want to remember to feed Dra-Gon.
