Hand In Hand

Remember, we all stumble ,
every one of us.
That's why it's a comfort
to go hand in hand.

Emily Kimbrough

Of Note: The collective soul of nature "instinctually" proceeds hand in hand in its development. It's showing this side of Itself in these ostrich ferns, which relish the opportunity to get densely matted and as a unit push each other toward the sun. As nature differentiates into Humanity, this group ability is first lost and then regained through the mechanism of painful struggle. Thus, it's not only a comfort to find the stumbling other and pull them up, it's an evolutionary necessity.

On Another Note: Did you read that the Dalai Lama was in the hospital? Our hearts go out to him and the struggles he has encountered this year. Collectively we can reach out to him, if only in our imagination, and pull him up with our many compassionate hands. A recount of his imaginary visit to our piece of heaven here in northern Wisconsin can be read at my March 27th blog, which can be easily accessed through the archives. His struggles with getting in and out of the boat might bring a smile.

Today's Weather Report: Oh, let the sun shine in, face it with a grin....lalalala. And with it will come warmer temps all the better to finish the truck touchup painting project. One never knows this time of year when the last 60 degree day will occur.
