today the boys found a shipwreck on the shore of our beach. it was in real rough shape but they worked hard at fixing it a new sail, backed it up with both modern engine and trusty oars and spent some hours out on the water tweaking the defenses with canons and auto bow and arrows…here’s to another year of adventuring and exploring, to more replies of “yes”, to softening my ego, to playing along and learning ever more from these mateys.

With this 3rd light of Advent
We give thanks to the animals
To beasts large and small
Who reflect back our souls

Bless the friendship
and wonderment they provide,
Their gifts of self
nourish our lives.

Bless the deep knowledge
and the lessons they offer,
about caring and loving
And sharing Earth with each other.

(umm i think we need a pet!)
