Death of a cardinal



It’s said that when we die, the four elements — earth, air, fire and water — dissolve one by one, each into the other, and finally just dissolve into space.  But while we’re living, we share the energy that makes everything, from a blade of grass to an elephant, grow and live and then inevitably wear out and die.  This energy, this life force, creates the whole world.

When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive — to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  4:30am.  One of the most breathtaking, awe inspiring moments I had during our travels to the Maritimes.

Today ends my connection to the internet for a while.  No further posts are scheduled so I’ll see you again, live and in person, on Sunday or Monday.  Thanks for visiting.  Have a fabulous weekend and, if you’re experiencing the same extreme heat we are, stay cool.
