Raven 175: Weird

Magpies -- and corvids generally, including ravens -- have a reputation for being attracted to shiny objects. It turns out that this reputation does not withstand empirical scrutiny. It isn't true.

Humans, however, are attracted to shiny objects. Is there a connection between that weird obsession and the diminishment of the Earth (foresters closing in)? If so, what does that mean for your practice?

Mallard flew in one evening and reported, "Miners keep coming to Beaverdam to wash for gold. I think that's a pretty weird activity."
Raven said, "Magpies wouldn't think so."
Mallard said, "Magpies are weird."
Raven said, "The foresters are closing in, too."
