He Said, She Said

Kind of looks like they're in a tiff...
This picture reminds me a lot of this poem I used to read for my Intro to Psychology class.  I know you're probably thinking....why was she reading poetry in psychology?  Well, I was reading this poem because it is an excellent illustration of using projection as a way of coping.  Projection is a defense mechanism where you project your feelings onto someone else.  If you'd like to read it, the poem is by Denise Duhamel, titled How It Will End.  My students always seemed to enjoy hearing it read. 
 
Thank you so much to those of you who have emailed me to see how the job search is going.  I have been so touched!  I heard back from the company I liked so well, and the only thing they are still waiting on now is the CPS background check.  So hopefully I will hear something in the very near future.

Keeping my fingers crossed!! Although I am sure you are a shoe in..

Buttons said...

Wow I just came back from Googling "How it will end" WOW I cannot believe how differently men and woman think and place themselves in the lives of complete strangers so quickly not really knowing but possibly knowing what the scene that runs through the minds of others because it is their thoughts about their own relationship. Do you get that? Sometimes I have a hard time expressing what I think.
I think we all do that and the lesson in my head is we may think we know and think everyone thinks the same as us but we really do not.
Interesting Lisa I am going to be thinking of this all day. B

Magnolia Holler said...

Thanks for the update! It sounds like we could hear good news soon.

Rosemary said...

Great picture, goes perfectly with your blog title. I'm loving the colours of the bird on the left and can't believe how shiny its feathers look in the sunlight. Hmmm, wonder what they're thinking :)

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Cute pic of the roosters who do appear at odds. I will check out the poem too. Sounds like you are about to be employed. Yay! Thanks for the update.

Are We There Yet! said...

With that rooster... I am sure once you get your job, you won't need an alarm clock to get up with.

Irish Italian Blessings said...

I've been thinking of you too! Hope you hear back soon :)

Ginny said...

I love this shot, and also the way the sun is shining on the one on the left's feathers. Please let us know about the job when you get it, the hours, and a little bit about what you will be doing. Gosh, I hope it doesn't cut into your blogging time!

Renae at simple sequins said...

hi Lisa! Merrells are great shoes. They are supportive and sensible. I have to have both in my collection. Sensible and ridiculous is more me.

I love this photo. Chickens have strange body language, don't they?

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

That sounds so hopeful on the job front!

That photo is cute. It really does look like they're mad at each other. lol

TexWisGirl said...

oh, that hen is mad!

Great post, lovely poem.

Michaele said...

Great photo for the post : )
I was hoping you would update us on the job. This one would be great - but there will be others if it doesn't work out. It is just a door.

Karen said...

I enjoyed that poem! Yep, I have an in-law that is notorious for projecting, but I'll bet I do the same thing without realizing! Hope things go well with the interview!

A Quiet Corner said...

uh oh...you didn't tell them you lived next door to "them", did you? Oh, crap! They're going to find out when they dig into your "back-ground"! I knew you'd be a perfect fit for that job because you don't fail at anything!!!...:)JP

I looked up the poem; the picture illustrates it well.

Good luck on the potential new job.
Also, those are some nice looking chickens. I think I need to put my chickens on a diet. They waddle like ducks when they walk :)
