When The Sky Meets The Earth

Above is an image of a rainy night in Lake Junaluska North Carolina, when the rain clouds moved below the mountains. It is a moment when the sky meets the earth. The scene is very mystical with the clouds over the landscape. There are times in our life when we have mystical moments, when we see our lofty ideas and dreams come down to us in real time. Those are the times "WHEN THE SKY MEETS THE EARTH!"

Above is an image of the Cliffs of Moher taken on a recent trip to Ireland. One is filled with wonder when you see the cliffs for their size and grander. Nature is filled with many wonders both grand and small. All we have to do is look for them. It is also up to us to protect these wonders from development and exploitation. The world needs Nature's Wonders!

Running Across The Water

Above is an image of a Basilisk Lizard, also know as the "Jesus Lizard" for its ability to run across the the surface of water to escape a predator. The Basilisk Lizard is not native to Florida and came from Mexico and Central America. If we only had the ability of "Running Across The Water" our lives would be so much easier. Instead we tend to sink in life. Our problems, our troubles. our doubts all sink us down in life. What we need to do in life is try and develop a positive attitude in our problems, troubles and doubts. They will not last forever. If we can be a little more positive it can lift us out of our sinking and we too can be "RUNNING ACROSS THE WATER!"

It Is OK to Say I Don't Know

Above is an image of a juvenile Little Blue Heron. Blue you say! the bird is not blue but white. Juvenile Little Blue Herons are white and will turn blue as they mature into adulthood. In fact it is very hard to tell a juvenile Little Blue Heron from a Snowy Egret. Little Blue Herons have grayish bills and greenish-yellow legs compared to black bills and black legs of a Snowy Egret. Both are all white and the same size. In fact when you see one or the other, it is very common to say "I don't know" what kind of bird it is I am looking at. Often in life, we try to resist the urge to say "I don't know." We guess or we make something up that sounds convincing. However, the way to knowledge starts with "I don't know" and if we pursue the truth, we may learn the correct answer to the questions in life. "IT IS OK TO SAY I DON'T KNOW!"

Off To A Tough Start

Above is an image of an American White Pelican taking off from the water at Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach. Pelican are not seen that often there, but lately they have been visiting the wetlands. Pelicans are extremely good fliers if you ever watch they swoop down into the water after fish. However, they are very awkward when they go to take to the air. Pelicans are "off to a tough start" when they start to fly. Often, we experience a tough start when we start something new, it could be an exercise, a new job, a new hobby, or a new life experience. Things can be tough and difficult at the start. When we find ourselves in that situation, just remember the Pelican, a powerful flyer, but they are "OFF TO A TOUGH START!"
