The Bee at The Window

All of us have experienced the bee who can’t understand glazing. They will keep buzzing and bumping into the same inch of glass never seeming to try another option. Many of us will have tried to help the bee by opening a window and guiding it out with a magazine. That bee will still keep bumping the glass and avoiding the open window until all of a sudden it escapes.

I doubt I’m alone in watching the bee and being frustrated at how it just won’t go to the open window to escape. Some of us may even call the bee stupid but how many of us do the same thing in our own lives?

Our piece of glass could be going to the same job everyday expecting us to enjoy it. It could be sticking with a relationship that gives us a headache just like that glass. It could be something as simple as taking the same route every day and being late because you think it should take half an hour but you know there’s always more traffic. No matter what our pane is we all have one.

Despite our vastly larger brains are we really any better than that bee at the window?

David Chambers grew up in Coventry in the 80's and 90's. A time and place not known for literature, he was never the less raised on a road named after Robert Louis Stevenson. His walk to school took him through roads named after Joseph Addison, Rudyard Kipling and Charles Dickens. Oblivious to the inspiration he followed his career advisor into engineering and spent the next couple of decades forgetting his earlier love of reading and writing stories. Finally, a change of role left him with lots of flights and nights in hotels. After filling his spare time with reading he decided it was time to create his own stories and finally put pen to paper.
