Dear Readers of My Blog:
Thank you for following my blog for the past six months! When I started writing this blog, I had no idea the shape it would take or how long I’d continue writing it. Where does “subject matter” come from? Also, I do appreciate your likes and comments or discussion as they show me that I’m not talking to myself.
In this season of gathering, I’d like to take a moment to contemplate peace within myself, in my family, community and the world that we share with everyone else.
Brooke Medicine Eagle, author of Buffalo Woman Comes Singing, holds a vision of a time when ‘all my relations‘ are honored. This vision includes what we consider inanimate objects such as trees and rocks. And it includes what is termed ‘the four leggeds‘–animals; and insects also. Her vision includes the earth itself.
Buckminster Fuller, an American author, architect, systems theorist, designer, and inventor, re-popularized the term “Spaceship Earth”. This world view expresses concern over the earth’s limited resources; it encourages everyone across the world to act as a cohesive crew working for the greater good.
So in this season (and beyond), may I consider that which connects me to others over that which separates us. And may I remember to practice living from that connection. It truly is one interconnected planet.
Peace to all of you.
