Monday Musings…May 23rd 2022…

Welcome to Monday Musings where I share some things that have thrilled me, made me think or smile or even have a mini-rant although that didn’t happen often during the last week…May is in full swing now we are flying through the months…

Many people live lives in which I am in awe...sometimes I envy their luck at other times I just wonder why that was the path they chose and it makes me sad or angry and very occasionally I just feel privileged to be able to virtually visualise a life well lived in so many ways it leaves me with the feeling of just wow thank you for sharing these moments…this is one such time…

I thought all bees were black and yellow…how wrong…Please meet the Blue Banded Bee…

The Australian Blue Banded Bee…Blue-banded bees are among the most beautiful of Australia’s native bees…they are not honey bees they are pollinators…

Blue Banded Bees can perform a special type of pollination called buzz pollination. Some flowers hide their pollen inside tiny capsules. A Blue Banded Bee can grasp a flower of this type and shiver her flight muscles, causing the pollen to shoot out of the capsule. She can then collect the pollen for her nest and carry it from flower to flower, pollinating the flowers. Quite a few native Australian flowers require buzz pollination…

What a heartwarming gesture this is…

These children have been forced from their homes and most have had to say goodbye to their fathers not knowing if they will ever see them again…I think using music by singing a song which has shot to Eurovision fame in Ukrainian to make these children welcome was a wonderful idea…

Thank you for joining me today for Monday Musings as always I look forward to your comments xx

    I think the teachers at that Irish school were absolutely inspired, perhaps more than they realise. Learning the words to that song – in Ukrainian – is a form of ‘role play’ in which the kids learn to empathise by experiencing rather than being ‘told’. That empathy will stay with them for the rest of their lives, imho, making them more tolerant as adults. Simply brilliant. 🙂

    Quite a touching gesture from the school kids. I like the idea of kids having to struggle some to learn something in another language to appreciate how challenging it can be for anyone trying to learn a new language.
