Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Life in the Village, part 156: Battle of Jarrab, north of Riyadh

Captain William Shakespear.

#onthisday  in 1915, 100 years ago, Captain William Shakespear, explorer and military advisor of Ibn Sa'ud, future king of Saudi Arabia, was killed during the  Battle of Jarrab, north of Riyadh, before he could become “Shakespear of Arabia”.

“I think you are another of these desert-Ioving English. Doughty, Stanhope, Gordon of Khartoum. No Arab loves the desert. We love water and green trees. There is nothing in the desert. And no man needs nothing. Or is it that you think we are something you can play with...” (Prince Faisal in “Lawrence of Arabia“)

It was one of the “what ifs” in history. Not a major one, at least not at the time, since it was two decades before oil was discovered in the Arabian peninsula, but at least it happened close to the Suez Canal, British India and at the backdoor of the crumbling Ottoman Empire on the eve of the Great War. It was not as if the various Arab tribes and factions in the Najd, the central region of present-day Saudi-Arabia and the Hejaz, the eastern coast, were exactly chafing under the Ottoman yoke. Imperial supremacy was usually exerted through the local sherifs and princes, even though the local ultra-conservative Wahhabi leaders had been rather alienated by the new-fangled, secular ideas of the “Young Turks” at the High Porte. The Sultan in Constantinople was still seen as the Defender of the Faith. Somehow.

Before the war, affairs in regards to local “Asiatic powers” in places bordering the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf were usually handled by the IPD, the Bombay-based “Indian Political Department”. Born in Bombay and educated in England, the dashing young Sandhurst graduate Lt William Shakespear, 17th Bengal Cavalry, chose to become a “Political”, as members of the department were known, learned Urdu, Pushtu, Farsi and Arabic, earned some merits as a civil servant and became the youngest consul the IPD ever had at the age of 25. At the back of beyond. In Bandar Abbas on the Strait of Hormuz. However remote the place was from pressing political matters of the day, though, Consul William Shakespear made the best of it and became an explorer, took his army compass, a sextant and his trusty glass-plate camera, packed it in his Rover motor car bought from a Karachi dealer and set forth to explore the desert and drove the vehicle on his first home leave through Persia, Turkey and Europe to France in 1907. On his returned to Kuwait, he became an avid falconer, obtained a brace of saluki hounds, rode a camel as well as a Bengal lancer’s cavalry horse, explored the Najd and became a fast friend of Abdulaziz ibn Saud, Lord of Riyadh since a few years and not exactly on good terms with the Turks. And while William Shakespear travelled more than 1,800 miles through the uncharted Najd and became his own legend among the local tribes, the Foreign Office and the IPD considered their policy of non-intervention on the peninsula when things went pear-shaped on a rather global scale in August 1914.
   

Oil had become increasingly important during the first years of the 20th century. In industrial production and as fuel for the new super-dreadnoughts that secured Britain’s lifelines and contained the Kaiser’s battle fleet when war broke out. One of the first moves of the war in the Middle Eastern theatre was a push from British India into Ottoman Mesopotamia, present-day Iraq, to secure the pipelines and all of a sudden, William Shakespear’s friendship with Abdulaziz and his people was a strategic asset on the southern flank of the march to Basra and Bagdad. Personal connections as well as weapons and money, lots of money then and a lot more later, persuaded Abdulaziz to make his move against the nominal Ottoman overlords. Refusing to dress in the robes of a sheriff of the Beni Wejh or something similar like his more famous colleague two years later, William Shakespear, now promoted to captain, wore the staunch khaki and the pith helmet of an officer of the British Indian Army when he rode with Abdulaziz’ irregular cavalry into the first major battle with Abdulaziz’ old rival, the pro-Ottoman Saud Ibn Rashid. “Abd al-'Aziz wants me to clear out but I really want to see the show and I don't think it will be unsafe really...." Shakespear had written to his brother a few weeks before. He couldn’t be more wrong. Accounts vary if he took photographs or directed the fire of one of Abdulaziz’ guns when the Rashidis charged. He was shot thrice and died. By the end of the year, Abdulaziz had signed the Anglo-Saudi Treaty, but British emphasis on the scene had shifted from Bombay to Cairo, supporting rather Sherif Hussein bin Ali, Feisal and the Kingdom of Hejaz and it was another lieutenant and “political” who became world-famous when the Arab Revolt begun and not “Shakespear of Arabia”

Depicted below to the upper left is Abdulaziz ibn Saud, “"a fair, handsome man, considerably above average Arab height with a particularly frank and open face, and after initial reserve...of genial and very courteous manner", as Shakespear had described him, below is his army shown on the march, both photographs were taken by Shakespear, archived along with a lot of the pictures he took by the Royal Geographic Society on http://images.rgs.org/search_.aspx?artistID=6994 and found as illustrations of an excellent article from the BBC’s “Round the Bend”series, named “Shakespear of Arabia” on http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-30796539 - to the right is Captain William Henry Irvine Shakespear in full dress uniform.

Life in the Village, part 155: Paavo's Day

Ht +Sakari Maaranen​

Paavo's Day tomorrow has been an important milestone for the winter. It was said that Paavo is the best part of winter, as the days are brighter, and people can enjoy the shining sun reflecting from the pure white snow. 

Paavo's Day was considered the centre of winter, by the time which half of the snow had fallen and half of the animal food consumed. The week following Paavo was called 'talvennapa' (winter's centre) in some areas and the Wednesday of that week was referred to as the mid-winter Wednesday.

On Paavo's Day the sun shines her light even to the “back of the sleigh”. It was said that if the sun shone brightly throughout the day - or at least so long that man could harness his horse - it would be a good year for grain and the spring would be beautiful. Brightness also predicted good pea harvest, and pea soup was traditionally eaten in south-western Finland on Paavo's Day.

If people didn't have the soup ingredients, they went to the neighbour asking for "Paavo's peas" and pig's trotters. Rich families paid for these, but poorer people got them for free. Generosity brought good luck to the house, as it also did on other feasts, and ensured the pea harvest would succeed in the coming summer.

If there was snowfall on Paavo so that the sleigh tracks on the ground were covered; flax, hemp, tobacco and potato would not grow well. Yet in other predictions, some snowfall on Paavo predicts good harvest, at least for pea. If it snowed so much that straws were covered, the year would be bad and unlucky.

Although the days are already brighter around Paavo, the weather can hardly be called warm. People talked about “Paavo, the friend of frost, snotty nose, the beard covered with ice". It was also said that if the weather wasn't cold on Paavo, the summer would be no good and harvest would fail. On the other hand, Paavo's warm southern wind at least predicted a good berry season.

Zen of Small Tasks: Appreciation

Squirrel Appreciation Day: 10 Nutty Facts

Why exactly is National Squirrel Appreciation Day (January 21) so popular? Maybe it’s because squirrels are adorable, and extremely fun to watch. Maybe it’s the many hats they wear (not real hats — please don’t put hats on squirrels). What I mean is, they play a variety of roles, like acrobat, bandit, gardener, trickster and much more. I set out to discover why these creatures are worthy of their own day, and after you read the facts I found, you might just appreciate squirrels a little more.

Zen of Small Tasks: Notes

Why You Should Take Notes By Hand

Our brain uses two different types of cognitive processing when doing these two operations: typing and writing. As tested on a group of undergrads, the research proved that laptop users type almost everything they hear without processing the meaning or devoting much thought to what it is they’re taking notes on. Basically, when you type, all you’re doing is mindlessly transcribing, and that does not require much cognitive activity.

When you take notes by hand, however, you obviously can’t write down every single word your professor utters. So you listen, summarize, and list only the key points. Your brain is more engaged in the process of comprehension and so the information processed this way is remembered better.

Good Afternoon Dear Zabkowicians

Nothing to see here, just some whale sharks floating over Silesian villages, carry on, as you were...

“But to me it is mystery making life beautiful and worth living" (Alfred Kubin)
 
The good people of Zabkowice had solid experience in the torches-and-pitchfork-routine. Since centuries. There was the plague in 1606. 2,000 died caused by a bunch of maniacs . They had established a vigorous trade in poisonous powders, mixed from corpses and were in dire need of supplies. When the story leaked, the Zabkowicians got their pitchforks and scythes, formed the customary mob and smoked out the fine lot of them. Then that loopy chap from Ingolstadt came with his outlandish ideas of animating dead matter to life. They burned the castle where the loony had settled down with his retorts and generators and what not. The 8’ tall thing that had haunted the surrounding woods, arisen from the said doctor’s lab back then, was sufferable, but the whale sharks simply weren’t. The Zabkowicians simply knew that tale of the meticulously dressed, portly little Teuton with his neatly parted hair and the perfectly annoying habit of clicking his heels when he introduced himself as “Doktor Ambrosius Wanzenbock” would not have a happy ending when he moved into the castle ruins with his generators, antennae and diesel engines. Then the weather freaked out. And cattle disappeared. And returned. Changed. From having green coats all of a sudden to sporting additional tails, legs and heads. Isolated cases, granted, but as soon as the skies ripped open on Walpurgis Night and a school of whale sharks glided through the rift over the village, the Zabkowicians had it. Especially, when one of the giant brutes suddenly began to flap frantically with his pectoral fins and crashed on the village’s high street. And destroyed the tavern. Not funny at all. While the rest of the fish glided towards Breslau, folks flocked together and burned out the Wanzenbock. The beached whale shark was transported to an abattoir in Glatz and manufactured into fish meal and codliver oil. The children of the region hated Dr Ambrosius Wanzenbock and his jumbo fish with a vengeance. For years.
 
Depicted below is the unfortunate whale shark that was lured from another dimension by Dr Wanzenbock, with at least the children of Zabkowice still happy about the occurrence, being still too young to be part of the wrecked local tavern’s customer base. The photo was taken by the US journalist Sanford Griffith, in the region for the New York Herald in 1921, but never published.
 
An adult whale shark is a bit large for an exhibition at the #wunderkammer , but a taxidermied 32’ specimen, caught off Fire Island, New York, in 1935, that had wandered quite off course can be wondered and marvelled at here:
 
http://wildlifepreservations.com/port_whaleshark.html
 
… the #wunderkammer contents itself with Griffith’s photo and the wondrous tale of artificially produced dimensional rifts in Silesia.

Deep Stuff: Hospitable Planets

Planets outside our solar system may be more hospitable to life than thought
Astrophysicists suggest that exoplanets are more likely to have liquid water and be more habitable than once thought. If correct, there would be no permanent, cold night side on exoplanets causing water to remain trapped in a gigantic ice sheet. Whether this new understanding of exoplanets' climate increases the ability of these planets to develop life, however, remains an open question.

"In a network, stewardship is ownership is feeling a sense of shared purpose."

We are rapidly forgetting our own history. Our fragmented presence is making it increasingly difficult to make common and make good on cocreating, constructing and collaboratively owning our own future.
We are, in a great many senses, out of time.

"Though the people and places may long remain, the time moves inexorably onward and is forever lost. It is this which makes nostalgia both possible and necessary, because each story that makes our narrative what it is teaches us something, about life or the world, and we need to collect and remember those lessons as each new narrative unfolds or they meant nothing even if we paid a price to learn them. One good way to do that is to remain connected to them even if only in the smallest degree."

+John Kellden :
Good one +Jason K !  :)

In a beautifully written piece for The Guardian, Wade Davis says that Diamond's "shallowness" is what "drives anthropologists to distraction." For Davis, geographer Diamond doesn't grasp that "cultures reside in the realm of ideas, and are not simply or exclusively the consequences of climatic and environmental imperatives."
http://goo.gl/JTrIUe

Here's the Guardian piece:
http://goo.gl/rVWe4X

"In a network, the network itself is the innovation."
-- John Kellden

"In a network, all activity is catalyzed by ideas."
-- John Kellden

(I'm working my way towards writing a book about networks, and how different graphs can co-exist in one and the same network)

Just to make clear, that our existence as a species among others on Gaia, can be seen as a network.

+Jason K :
We need other things to do things and they have clinged unto us. It's all messy, but life is.

+John Kellden :
+Jason K profoundly true. We shape things that shape us in return. We like simplicity as an idea, but we love complexity.

Life itself is complexity. The saving grace is, it will remain messy.

+Bettina Ascaino :

+Amelia Hoskins :
+John Kellden Many folks are skeptical, I know, of the need for action on a presumed climate change fiasco for humanity.  BUT, can we know the TIPPING POINT? keeping in mind ancient cultures went through climate changes which wiped them out.

Only in the last 2 centuries have we been spewing stuff into the atmosphere. We acted against CFCs when we found the OZONE HOLE.  Its growing back slowly, we hope!
We think, oh, the sky is big it will just disappear.  NO.  The breathable atmosphere is only 300 miles and most of the air is in just 10miles (16km) around the surface. That is a very narrow skin or bubble around Earth, into which we pump all manner of nasties.  So we probably NEED the ozone hole for it to escape; clever Gaia.
http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/astronomy/planets/earth/Atmosphere.shtml

Earth will keep its balance, no matter what, but it wont necessarily adapt in a way to save humans.  Just look at diseases like Cancer, Aids and Ebola, the evil side of Gaia, (in our minds) actually trying to wipe us out! Microbial battles of yin-yang continue eternally.

We know our weather is changing; and yes, there's always been climate change on Earth; but its only now we are recording it daily. 

Deforestation in Brazil continues unabated;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deforestation_in_Brazil
http://rainforests.mongabay.com/amazon/charts.html  
Equatorial regions may become uninhabitable at some point, forcing vast populations to migrate northwards.  But no worry, because the Arctic will have melted by then, as glacial melt is already far advanced.  There will be lots of jobs in the Arctic; fossil fuel banksters are already staking their claims to the entire Arctic Circle.
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/jun/04/china-arctics-mineral-riches

We may adapt to climate change by population movement, putting great pressure on crowded cities and all resources, and we will have to get along much better!

Plastic in the seas: we think, oh, it will drift about, the oceans are so deep.  NO. Its non biodegradable, breaking down into particles in seawater and into the silt on the ocean bed, all over the oceans. So as sea food chains will contain plastic, and fish eaters will consume plastic, our tissues will have plastic. Fact.  We can't get it out now.  But we can stop putting more in.  RECYCLE ALL YOUR BLOODY PLASTIC!

+Mike Daniels :
We live to tell stories on the planet we live on and we must realize the planet has it changes, we can start with a simple a idea and apply it to live and breathe the way mother earth wants us to, I hope to start a community soon to help not only the environment but also my and other communities to make that difference. We can change to a cleaner environment by acting and not just I think that's A great idea, Earth is our home and it hears our calling to build back the heart it once had.

+Nadia Korths :
Earth/Gaia is the member of the races in existence that we rape over and over again. We have buried under our linear thinking the respect and honor that she deserves in every move we make. The Native American traditional relationship with the land is a powerful way to make amends. Each of us. We are responsible for what we leave our children. And for material possessions we rape her everyday!!!!
Yes I am passionate about this. The future is here. How lightly do I live? What can I do now, this moment, to lighten my imprint. This is my intent. Every day. 

+Jo-ann Hans :
I hope we can get our act together before we reach the 5th planetary boundaries...wake up call time is upon us

Good Afternoon Dear Seeds of the Future

Zen Poetry :

The thoughts were on the ground, sweeping the floor. After taking off in a vortex, they landed, one by one, like paper airplanes. And only their sculpted soot remained.

Translation: +Orlando Santos

Zen Poetry:

Os pensamentos eram térreos, varriam o chão. Depois de levitarem, em espiral, aterravam agora, um a um, como aviões do papel. E deles só restava a fuligem esculpida.

Our Future Societies: Viennese Coffee Houses

Any sufficiently advanced city offers a set of Viennese Coffee Houses, catering to our two core needs: uniqueness of expression and belonging to a group of convivial peers. 

Oh, and some coffee and apfelstrudel on the side of course.

#onthisday   in 1685, 330 years ago, the Armenian merchant Johannes Theodat or Diodato opened the first Coffee House in Vienna. 

“The [ Café ] Central-people are always attracted like the murderer to the scene of the crime, to where they killed so much time, wiped out entire years.” (Alfred Polgar)

Georg Franz Kolschitzky’s maiden name allegedly was Jerzy Franciszek Kulczycki, maybe he really was born a szlachta, a Polish nobleman, and maybe he even rode with the Zaporozhian Cossacks once and maybe he was born in a hovel in the backstreet of a Belarus dump, whatever was the case, during the 1670s, polyglot Jerzy worked as a translator for the Austrian Oriental Company in Belgrade, was in Constantinople in 1679 and relocated to Vienna in 1681. Two years later, Kara Mustapha Pasha marched west with 300,000 men to lay siege to the place and show House Habsburg what’s what. Jerzy volunteered to sneak through the Ottoman lines, disguised as a sipahi, singing Ottoman ditties and returned with the news that a relief army was on its way, the defenders held and during the Battle of Kahlenberg in 1683 that raised the siege, Jerzy fought in the ranks of the hero of the day, King John III Sobieski. And while it was the silk cord for Kara Mustapha in Belgrade, Jerzy asked Sobieski for a few sacks full of strange beans that his comrades believed were camel fodder found in the Turkish baggage train. Jerzy roasted and brew them, added milk and sugar, opened the first coffee house in Vienna, served the stuff as Melange, became Georg and the Viennese coffee tradition was born. The old rogue knew perfectly well that the beans were no camel fodder. Or so the story goes. It’s unfortunately not true.  
    

The first coffee house in Europe was opened in Constantinople a few years after the fall in 1475 and next came the Venetians and the English. By the time Kara Mustapha messed up the conquest of Austria, there were already several thousand coffee houses in England and France, mostly ran by Jewish, Armenian and Greek proprietors, those who had usually the best contacts within the Ottoman Empire. However, Kolschitzky opened an establishment, a year after Diodato, in 1686, the Hof zur Blauen Flasche ("House under the Blue Bottle"), then in Schlossergassl, today’s Stock-im-Eisen-Platz near St Stephen’s Cathedral. Already during the 1820s, coffee houses in Vienna numbered more than 150 and even if the speciality coffees did not have their proper evocative names yet, the coffee tradition and coffee house culture began to assert itself. Like the places in London and Paris, the Kramersche Kaffeehaus catered already in 1700 for the local notoriously cash-strapped intelligentsia with coffee as well as newspapers, magazines and the charming custom that once a patron had ordered something, he could stay as long as he wanted, read and discuss.

And while London’s coffee houses spawned Lloyd’s as well as Dr Johnson’s “Dictionary”, the Parisian establishments the encyclopédistes, enlightenment and maybe the great Revolution, by the end of the 19th and the early 20th century, the “Kaffeehaus” in Vienna housed the flower of Central European arts as well as intelligence, from Klimt and Schiele, Freud and Adler to Zweig, Schnitzler, Herzl and Trotsky in places like “Café Griensteidl“,  “Café Museum” and “Café Central”. The institutions hardly survived the Second World War, by the 1950s they had almost died out along with their illustrious clients. Fifty years later, in 2011, the "Viennese Coffee House Culture" at least had been ranked as part of Austrian "Intangible Cultural Heritage" by the UNESCO and a renewed local interest in tradition as well as tourism guarantee a survival and some of the classic places of cultural renown still exist along with many lesser known coffee houses throughout the city.

Good Evening Fellow Activists

Everybody's talking 'bout...

One knows news reporting is bad when one resorts to sharing hypnotic chants - can we blast this from space everywhere till people give in just to make it stop? Imagine it going on for hours...

Also, one attempts to be clever and believes oneself to have invented a new hashtag only to find it on Twitter (#lovolution) ;p

It can also be safely concluded that one is not quite oneself when one refers to oneself as one.

Life in the Village, part 149: Office

The Hobbit Hole Office

I love secret places people build for work or play. Here is one such place. It's a office inside (see pictures at blog). There is also construction pictures so if you fancy one it will give you some ideas. There is a skylight to let the natural light in, and a sod roof, which you can see here.

I think one of the reasons these appeal to me is they are something most people might look at and say, why? They are not practical or "normal", and that's what appeals. Tree houses, houseboats, Hobbit Hole, and the rest, are something that kids would love. We adults would do well to be more childlike with our imaginations and projects.

Gaia: Biodiversity

Don't forget the other side of the coin

With so much attention going to carbon emissions and energy as focal points in the struggle against climate change, we mustn't take our eyes and minds off the equally important battle to save the world's resources and biodiversity.

As this fantastic summary-article says, resource preservation and regeneration are vital solutions to avert climate change, but they're life-critical in their own right:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vance-g-martin/a-wild-answer-to-climate-_b_6459012.html

Reminds me of my dear friend Pablo Cruz (pictured), the longtime director of the U.S. Forest Service in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico and chief protector of the El Yunque Rainforest on the island.

His calling in life has become to keep urban pressures from harming the forest more than they already have. His fine team of biologists continually document the rich biodiversity alive in this amazing habitat and don't tire of educating anyone who will listen on the deep value these resources bring to our lives.

The same can be said of everyone with the same calling in forests everywhere. And oceans, rivers, lakes and all nature parks and wilderness areas.

The challenge posed by the article has indeed become the next frontier in our crusade to save them all, and with them save humanity, as the article makes clear:

"How do we make this reality understandable, accessible and cool? We have a plethora of conservation organizations, institutes, think tanks, and agencies. They are necessary, but they mostly deal in science and policy, and their jargon is as opaque as carbon gas and methane are invisible. Science and policy are important, but they are tools. What we need is a new kind of vector, a bridge from ideas to inspiration and action."

Culture must be part of this new vector, say the authors and Wild Foundation leaders. So must marketing and the game-changing work communicators can do to trigger this bridge.

The challenge is out. We only have 10-15 years to turn this around, or else. There is zero time to waste.

Marketers and artists of the world, UNITE!!

Good Afternoon All Flying Cool Cats

Catwings

"Catwings is a children's book written by American author Ursula K. Le Guin, who is also known for her Earthsea fantasy novels and The Left Hand of Darkness (for which she received a Hugo Award), and illustrated by S. D. Schindler. It is written for children aged 7 to 10. It was followed by three sequels, making up a series known as The Catwings Collection.

Set in the present day, Catwings follows four cats, the winged children of Mrs. Jane Tabby. While they were born in the city, Thelma, Roger, James and Harriet are urged by their mother to leave a bad neighborhood that was getting worse. As soon as the kittens are able to fly, they leave the city and their mother who has no wish to leave herself. The book follows the four catwings as they try to make a home in the country where they find life is just as hard as it is in the city."

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catwings

The Owl thinks slowly, but the Owl thinks long.
