Bird Contemplations 15 (Bear Reflections)

[Given that the bears were making themselves far too comfortable (on my deck) the bird feeders have been put away and my daily contemplations/reflections while watching the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks have come to an end – for now; offering bear reflections on impermanence, the cycle of life, and the very small yet large part I play in the web of life.]

Peace Is Every Step

Today is Memorial Day. And while I plan a fun filled day with a friend who is usually working on Monday, I also take time to reflect upon the men and women throughout history who have given their life so that I might have the life I live today. We speak of their sacrifice and thank those living and dead for “their service.” And then we send the next generation to war.

My Uncle, a Pearl Harbor Survivor, once said to me, “Anyone who has been to war and is willing to send someone else is crazy.” Albert Einstein said that insanity is, “…doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me…
