Something changed with me when my brother died. Not sure what it was, just a feeling that what mattered to me yesterday no longer does, and that what didn't matter seems to now. As a result, I don't have much to say about environmental concerns right now. But, because I care so deeply for the environment, I know I will be back to this blog soon.

As I sat on my patio drinking coffee this morning, watching birds and bees feast on nectar and seeds from my garden, I was reminded of the continuity of life. Sitting amongst plants, wrapped in the cloak of nature, I felt a small bit of the sadness over my brother's recent death lift, and was reminded of the true healing powers of the natural world.
