Well, I can’t say that I have never gotten lost, turned around, confused, or just plain disoriented. I know it’s hard to believe, but it has only happened two or three times. I have to tell ya, each time it has happened, I have felt like the world was coming to an end.

North is.....that way!

It seems that some people have an inner compass. A part of their brain that operates much like a bee’s other set of eyes. Something inside of these people absorbs light angle, shadows, time of day, and some kind of inner GPS and shoves it all together and spits out where North always is.

Now, you may think, “Jacque, you are so full of shit!”, but I tell you it’s true. To prove it, ask me out into the woods any time you like. If the sun is shining, I can probably say where north is within a tiny bit. Only problem is, bees don’t fly on cloudy days! There’s a reason for that.

Ahh, the light helps me navigate!

This is just a hypothesis of mine. I don’t really know if bees fly on cloudy days but I’ll bet they don’t. If they do, they probably don’t fly far from home. You want to know why? Because you can’t measure the angle of light IF THERE ISN’T ANY!!! How do I know this? Every time I have gotten lost – IT HAS BEEN OVERCAST or RAINY!

Now – I charge each and every one of you to go out on a cloudy day and see if there are any friggin’ bees flying around….I will bet there isn’t. Just an idea I have!

Go Anywhere!
