Thanksgiving: the elephant, the ant and the Monarch butterfly

"God blooms from the shoulder of the elephant who becomes courteous to the ant."

- Hafiz

It’s Thanksgiving.

It’s a time to reflect on the gifts we’ve received from Earth, Sky, Water, Sun and Darkness. It’s a time to acknowledge in our minds and hearts the gifts we’ve received from individuals, groups, communities, organizations and governments.  It’s a time to acknowledge plants, animals and all living beings who give to us with their spirits, their lives, their beauty, their energies and life force to maintain this planet and all who live here.

Mother's Day: building bridges for understanding

Baby Nest machinery Oil on canvas. SurrealismWhere were you born? I mean specifically. Were you born in a bed, in a hospital, a private home or a boat? 

Perhaps in a taxi? Maybe you were born on a blanket on the ground. Was it quiet or noisy around you?

Was it a safe place or was danger lurking or exploding?  

Where did you go after you were born? Who was around you? What was your nest?
