A Whale of a Story

IMG-1001

Livescience.com just published a (very) short video of a marine biologist seemingly being rescued from a tiger shark. Scientists warn that although it’s altruistic behavior, we need to not jump to conclusions. It might have something to do with their impulse to protect their own young and thus, might be unintentional.

Either way, it’s amazing to watch!

Full Bloom

Georgia O’Keefe was a great lover of flowers.  She believed that looking into a flower, you were in a new world and she wanted everyone to have that experience. But alas, she knew too many people were in a constant state of hurry. Wouldn’t this world be a better place if more people stopped to admire flowers?

Twigs and Bones

When I walk among the trees,

I drink in the rays of light

that peek through the leaves

and my feet crunch the “dead” things

but they are not lifeless

see here?

insects march and work

fungus and lichen exchange food

the twigs lie in wait

to service fires and soil

and you are not dead – never were –

your spirit lives on in everyone you ever met

Stawamus Chief Park in Squamish, BC

We rode the Sea to Sky gondola in Squamish today. It was a 12 minute ride to the top and, after three days of looking skyward to the tops of pine trees, now we were looking down on those beautiful giants!
After our ascent, we walked around and crossed a pedestrian suspension bridge. It’s thrilling to cross the vast expanse when the entire bridge reacts to your every move. 


The fog, as you can see, was thick all around us.
