Here we are in the shortest days of the year, and longest if you’re in the southern hemisphere. It’s so exciting, this clear awareness of our planet’s tilt. I tilt inside, a tilt-a-whirl, and yet, there are also a few days where all is still, so I balance there too. The word solstice derives from two Latin words, “sol” meaning sun, and “sistere”, to cause to stand still. Feel the spaciousness in nature’s call and respond. Give yourself time these next few days to stand still.
In checking out two African penguins hatched at the Monterey Bay Aquarium last week, I learn that the aquarium has live web cams so you can view various exhibits wherever you are.
Again, we’re wrapped in fog, and so I imagine the Aquarium is too, and yet, consider all the work on the planet to bring us together to connect land and sea. The penguins are part of a Species Survival plan for endangered species. Birth by birth, we build, and believing in the value, inspiration, and creativity in diversity, receive.
