Revisiting the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, I made a beeline for the rookery, hoping to see many roseate spoonbills as I had three years earlier. On my way there, though, I saw a yellow-crowned night heron in the same tree – maybe on the same branch – as before. For all I know, it was the same bird. Indeed, he/she may not have moved at all . . .

Woodstock: We are StardustPosted: 30 Jul
Part of the Whole
"A human being is a part of the whole – called by us Universe – a part limited in time and space. We experience our thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires, and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein
