Carl Jung Quote of The Week From Greg Bover

June 20, 2013

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

Carl Jung (1875-1961)

The founder of analytical psychology, Jung was born, raised and educated in Switzerland. His mother’s mysticism and his own early experiences with little understood psychological phenomena such as neurosis led him to a life-long study of the mind. In 1906 he met the somewhat older Sigmund Freud and formed a friendship and professional relationship that lasted for many years though they eventually fell out over the nature of the unconscious mind, Jung holding that the “collective unconscious” had a deeper and more powerful effect on the psyche. He was responsible for the development of several core concepts of modern psychology, including extroverted and introverted personalities, archetypes and “individuation”, the process of integrating the conscious and unconscious within one’s self. His theories led to a number of current psychological tools, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a test sorting individuals according to their perception of the world and their decision-making processes. Jung’s studies went well beyond the strictly scientific, including dream analysis, astrology, alchemy, and the occult.

A wonderful Film by Kim Smith

On Friday evening we enjoyed an amazing film on the Black Swallow Tail Butterfly at the Cape Ann Cinema on Main Street and then over to a fun reception at Bodin Historic Photo Shop. This film is great for all ages and I know my grand children would love it as well as adults. Thank you Kim Smith for your work, Pat Ciaramitaro, Sista Felicia for the yummy food, Craig Kimberley and Fred for hosting this event. Great time.

Into the Light, photograph  by Bob Avakian

Sponsored by the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, Photography Atelier is a portfolio-building course for emerging to advanced photographers taught by Karen Davis and Meg Birnbaum. In addition to guidance and support in the creation of a body of work, the class prepares artists to market, exhibit and present their work to industry professionals. The complete show was shown at the Griffin Museum in March and selections from that exhibition will be exhibited at Rocky Neck’s Cultural Center in June.

Participants: Bob Avakian, Betsy Constantine, Trelawney Goodell, Ellen Slotnick, Vicki McKenna, Judy Robinson-Cox, Linda Rogers, Gail Samuelson, Dianne Schaefer, Alice Shafer, Dick Simon, Christy Stadelmaier, Amy Rindskopf and instructors Karen Davis and Meg Birnbaum.

Rubber Duck Counterpoint: The Super Moon is Super!

First some definitions.

Supermoon: When Full Moon and Perigee occur at the same time.

Full Moon: When the Moon is opposite the sun and lit 100%. Everyone knows that. It happens every 29.5 days. (Remember that number, it’s important.)

Perigee of the moon: This is when the moon is closest to earth as it swings around the earth (not in a circle) Moon perigee happens every 27.6 days. (Remember that number too.)

So full moon every 29.5 days and close moon every 27.6 days. Those two events go out of and into synch. When they both happen very close to each other like this weekend the moon is “super”.  Is it a big deal? I think it is. Compare these two full moons occuring at perigee and apogee (opposite of perigee or the futhest the moon gets from earth):

lunar-apogee-perigee-2010Can you see a difference? I think you can. One could argue that it isn’t that “super” since those numbers synch every 14 months but I like to define “super” as being out of the ordinary. And this weekend on Cape Ann when the sun sets and the full moon rises you have many additional items that make this moon super.

1) Full moon. 2) Perigee. 3) It’s summertime and you are not freezing your ass off looking a the moon. 4) You are on Cape Ann so a five minute drive and you are watching the moon rise at 7:34PM over the ocean tonight (8:32PM Sunday night).

But mother nature throws in one more variable. Clouds. Most likely it will be cloudy at moonrise both days. But if clears get your butt off that couch and go check out a super moon.

The one last thing that makes a Cape Ann Super Moon more super than every one else’s moon. You live on an island. That means another five minute drive and you can watch the super moon set in the morning right into the ocean. (5:21AM Sunday morning, 6:32AM Monday morning). If that isn’t super I don’t know what is. Add a fresh butternut crunch doughnut from Rockport’s Brothers Brew and that might make it super for you. (Opens 7AM.)

FOB Ann Kennedy Writes with Wren Update

Hi Kim.  Here’s the update on the baby wrens.  Today at noon, 2 of them fluttered about 3 feet from their house to our deck rail.  Within a few minutes they made it up into the redbud tree where they stayed for quite awhile.  For the entire time they were out, the mama flew in and out of the house, removing small twigs, downy grey feathers, and other bits of stuff from the nest.   At this point, they are flying easily from the tree to the deck and back into their house.  In a day or two, they’ll be gone.  Our neighbors call them the “lighthouse wrens” as their house is a small wooden lighthouse.

Best wishes,

Ann

Thank You!

Thank you with all my heart to everyone who attended my film premiere last night. I feel so very blessed to have had my beautiful community of friends and family there, and by attending, you all made the event a great success and sellout!!! What a whirlwind, and it went by all much, much too fast. I hope I didn’t miss saying thank you to anyone last night.

With love and gratitude to my wonderful team. I could not have done it without you!

Tom Hauck ~ Although I began shooting my film “script-less,” I did, through the course of filming, write the story. I know I can always go to Tom for editing assistance, commentary, and proofreading and find his advice and knowledge of the written word invaluable. Life Story of the Black Swallowtail stems from a profound desire to communicate about the natural world found in our own backyards and that can only be achieved when rooted in a beautiful story.

Liv and Kathleen ~ From the moment I asked Kathleen and Liv to help with the music for my film they were there, giving 100 percent of themselves. Thank you Liv for sharing your beautiful voice and Kathleen for your beautiful organ playing. Thank you both especially for the improvisations, which so gorgeously melded with scenes of the butterfly during metamorphosis. And thank you Liv for simply being the best and most supportive and loving daughter a mom a could ever dream of and hope for.

Craig Kimberley ~ To my friend Craig for his editing assistance, and especially for his stunning key frames (the swan in flight!), help with title design, and overall advice on the film as a whole. And special thanks to Hannah for sharing Craig on his days off!

Joey ~ My friend Joey for his tireless support of everything great and good about Gloucester, for the weeklong “sticky,” and for writing, “Butterflies FTW!” I love being part of his GMG team, for more reasons than I can count.

Andrew Love ~ Thanks and appreciation to Andrew, who really saved the day in the eleventh hour, despite the fact that he was in the midst of leaving Cape Ann TV and beginning his new job at Newburyport’s cable channel PortMedia!

Lisa Smith, Cape Ann TV Producer ~ To Lisa for her continued advice, support, and friendship, and assistance, too, in the eleventh hour (and for the wonderful bottle of champagne last night!).

Rob Newton ~ Thank you Rob for inviting me to have my premiere at your very special venue—and didn’t that gentleman fall off his seat at just the right moment! Link to CACC Indie Gogo fundraiser so Rob can continue to support up and coming filmmakers like myself.

Fred Bodin ~ For hosting, once again, a wonderful party at Bodin Historic Photo Gallery. Fred just has the magic touch—his gallery is always warm and welcoming and everyone always feels entirely at ease and has a fabulous time at his parties. Special thanks to John McElhenny for staying late and helping clean up.

Felicia, Pat, and Barry ~ Despite the fact that Felicia is in the final stages of writing her cookbook and preparing for her Kickstarter launch she, Barry, and Pat provided the wonderful array of food served at Fred’s last night.

JoeAnn Hart and Gordon for sharing their breathtakingly beautiful great drift of asters (mecca to the pollinators), of which we will see much more of in my Monarch film!

Donna and Rick and Ann and Bob Kennedy ~ Thank you for the beautiful flowers. I am very touched by your thoughtfulness. Ann, the flowers were you in absentia!

And special thanks to Kate at Wolf Hill for providing our “special guest star” Black Swallowtail caterpillar for the premiere. This is the second time a caterpillar has been found on a parsley plant at Wolf Hill and that Kate has offered it to me to raise.

Update on the caterpillar: Last night Kate’s caterpillar spun its silk girdle and it is going to pupate at any moment!

Again, my thanks and love to you all! And the butterflies thank you, too!!!

MBBS #3 Lawley Tender Restoration

From the Maine Boat Builders Show      Elderly Lawley tender beautifully restored by Redd’s Pond Boatworks in Marblehead.

George Lawley & Son was established in Scituate in 1866, moving later to South Boston and then to Neponset in 1911.  By the time it closed in 1945 the company had built more than 1,100 yachts and 1,850 tenders along with military vessels .

Boston Red Sox- Tampa Bay game last Tuesday

David Ortiz consoles Molina of the Rays after his foul-tip hits him square in the face mask and then motions for the trainer to come help… then later in the game laces a line drive to bring in a run…just before the three hour rain delay.
