Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Earth Day

Let this be a day to remember what has been accomplished since the first Earth Day and think of how much more there is to do.

May we and our Nation's leaders find the wisdom, courage and leadership to redouble our efforts at loving our planet and saving our home, Earth.

The Peace of Wild Things




When despair for the world grows in me

and I wake in the night at the least sound

in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake

rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things

who do not tax their lives with forethought

of grief. I come into the presence of still water.

And I feel above me the day-blind stars

waiting with their light. For a time

I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.


— Wendell Berry

I didn't hear about Earth day tody, but I also think we should have Earth day each day. The cloud over Europe has mostly disappeared but to get all people around the world back home again is a big mess and takes time. We have Americans and Canadians and Australians plus Europeans still blocked here and will take a few days until everything will be back to normal again. The hundreds of Belgians who were blocked in New York will remember their adventure ! No information, no help, no food, no beds nothing, not even the Red Cross and they were not allowed to go out into "America" again. Truck drivers very kind people finally supplied them with food, camp beds, blankets and milk for the babies ! Unbelievable from a "civilized" country.
Your arrival date is approaching !
