Living by the Salish Sea
"I want to be under the sea." This tune kept running through my mind as I was at the Sidney Aquarium on World Oceans Day. Such a privilege to be living here even though I am not a water person. This year has had a bumpy start, but is turning around with some new ideas for creativity. Two of my younger (50's) relatives have recently told me that I am their role model. Wow!!
I have just read a quote from Leonard Cohen saying that the biggest obligation of growing older is to keep an open heart. I am trying to not become crotchety.
My First Nations friends treat Elders with such respect, it is almost overwhelming for me. i attribute some of my good health to this awareness. Thanks to them for sharing their songs and dances.
