Re: locusts to lungs

another staffer at my mom's home tested positive, & 2 residents have been hospitalized... meanwhile our disbelieving (and, in every sense of the word, unbelievable) Imbecile-in-Chief barricades himself behind platitudes, lies, urban mythology, and a phalanx of yes-men to ensure himself another TKO i...

Re: Barley Pond

They just buzz with life, especially when it gets warmer. And that smell - reminds me alternately of lentils & old tires... the sounds... Swamps & marshes make me smile. Except for the mosquitoes. They make me cross.

springtime hike
ripples on the pond
frog? muskrat?

little brown bird

oh! my mistake!

trailside shrine
flowers, ski poles, and a photo

Re: Earth is not an Infinite Reservoir of Profit

Love that shot. Changed my life at age eight. I was 18, home for the holidays during my 1st year at UNH. Christmas Eve - we'd just gotten home from midnight Mass, and I switched on the TV to behold the surface of the moon from 70 miles up. And when they started reading from Genesis... it was as clo...

never before have I needed so badly to hear this

 

a joyful reaffirmation that even in these apocalyptic days, Life will prevail: 73-seconds from the first day of the annual wood frog orgy in the vernal pool next door

a cold rain
tap-taps the skylight
overhead

virtual hikes
topographical maps
I sip coffee

where contour lines
converge in a dark band -
I must go there!

Well, he's an avid sailor and a skilled electrical engineer - but he didn't create this video. Just found it & appreciated it enough to share with like-minded individuals - as I'm doing now

Re: In the Apocalypse we'll make sure we can wipe our ass

My sister says she & Curt are going to install one before their TP runs out. I'm pretty well stocked for the moment, but should probably start researching them myself. Made an unplanned trip to Walmart yesterday - stuck a toe through my fitted sheet, and had no replacement on hand. While there, I bo...

Re: yet another stretch of the Gunpowder River

This is a view along my favorite hiking trail along the Millers River, through the Birch Hill Wildlife Management Area in Royalston MA. The story is the native peoples used to hold council fires by that boulder in the background. Maybe yes, maybe no, but it's a spiritual place to be. and here's tha...

Re: every frog

...and 300 miles away
in a different congregation
I attend a different church
of the same denomination
to worship Gaia
the Mother of us all
who despite the ills we've inflicted upon her
loves us
nurtures us
and will ultimately welcome us
home
beneath her soil
