Hurricane Sandy an extremely destructive and strong Atlantic Hurricane, is wreaking havoc around the Western Caribbean Sea, even the TD Webbroker order entry tool is crashing under the weather. My Monday morning ritual altered by a weather system, rapidly gaining speed somewhere on a far away coastline, reminding me, once again, how we are all connected. No less than the miracle of the squirrel gathering nuts, or the magnificent Big Horn Rams poised on the hill above Westside Rd., you and I are part of the miracle of creation.
Equally beautiful, unique, and extra ordinary. All one of the same source material, begotten from the same energy as the neighbour to the right and the stranger to the left. Born from fate, gifted with destiny.
Choices determine our lives, when to scavenge, when to store, prepare for storms, bask in sunshine, rest in silence. The only species that uses time as a guide, versus the signals of the universe. We no longer rely on the fading sun, an elongated moon shadow or constellations dancing across the sky. The clock, ticking, reminds me it is Monday morning – referencing me to another week, and days that need to be filled with obligations, salutations and edifications. Stuff, stuffed into the cavernous opening we refer to as ‘Our Lives’.
Time to prepare for winter, blowing in from the east and the west.
