Mutual interest, care, and survival

Why can’t so many people be like other things found in nature?  Working together, helping  one another, benefiting from close relationship?  True, there are people who try to live like this – that is good to know.  However you and I both know that there are people and nations that seem determined to use people, destroy people for personal gain, disrupt civility, etc.etc.  It does not have to be a cruel world.  Really doesn’t have to be.

Take a look at just one plant that is in a mutual “respect” relationship.

Check out the recent posting Watershed #21 Bottle Gentiana

You will find a simple posting on this plant and the relationship it has with the bumblebee – interesting.

We should all do so well supporting wine another.

Your comments are always welcome – maybe we can find the answer and be a help to others.

A Quote – Aldo Leopold

Here is a thought for your day – and life.

 “We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

Aldo Leopold

Up Close & Personal

Did you really ever look at something? Really look? Get up close and personal? Here is an opportunity to get close – real close and see what can often be missed. Look now at the detail, the expression, the color, the texture – close but not too close so that the “thing” is still recognizable for what it is.

 Looking closely at a thing, at life, at friendship, at one’s past; seeing the many fine details that make the whole, can give a new appreciation, a new understanding, a new perspective, a renewed purpose to move on and live again more fully, being whole again.
