Celebrate Earth Day – Be green!

Grasshopper Posing!

He sat there posing so nicely, I couldn’t resist. This is a photograph taken last summer. I stepped outside and there he was …ready for his close-up, so I obliged.

And then I was reminded of this scene from a television show. Master ‘Po’ is teaching a student ‘Caine’, in a monastery, a lesson:

Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?
Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
Caine: No.
Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?
Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

I wonder what we miss because we aren’t really listening? Our planet is calling to us. Do you here her?

Street Music!

I love the countryside and feeling close to the earth, but I also enjoy the nature of city life. I used to have a studio loft in downtown Portland, Oregon. It was on Main street in the heart of the city.

The creative energy that can be found at night in the city can be awesome.  Frequently I’d leave my windows open to listen to late night city sounds. and sometimes, something magical could be heard.

Thank you for visiting,
