In these difficult times, may we dream, incubate, and ultimately choose new and better ways, out of the blind consumerism that has blanketed our beautiful planet in pollution and desecration of all kinds. In the midst of of this planetary pause, may we recall the pleasure of simpler ways, in harmony, in balance with the gifts all around. Happy Beltane.

Wishing you all a wonderful, bright, joyous day filled with Love 💜🌞💜
I am reminded that Thanksgiving day, here in the US, can invoke different feelings for different folks. For many, it is a time to gather with family and friends in joy, love, and celebration. For those that have lost loved ones, this can also be a difficult time. And for those who have lost countless family members and entire ways of simply being…a very real part of the Thanksgiving story and legacy…I too reflect on that immeasurable sense of loss and trauma still playing out today.
The good news is we have an opportunity, to come together, today and everyday…to acknowledge, heal, respect, share, and interconnect…to create and open brighter possibilities, a better way…Together. We’re all in it together, here and now. I’m thankful to share this possibility, and round of existence with you my friends.

Gray whales have been washing up on the west coast of the United States lately, and no one knows precisely why…but it’s no secret that we humans, or at least some of we humans, are taking more than our fair share. Over the past month, on two separate camping trips to different areas of the Washington coast, I sadly encountered two different gray whales dead, washed ashore.
Life is sacred, magnificent, beautiful in all forms. Shall we find a better way, for us all, together…
