01 Jan Happy 2017!
Happy 2017 and farewell to 2016! By many accounts, 2016 has been unprecedented…well we won’t rehash the election…the loss of some of our revered icons like David Bowie, George Michael and just the other day, both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, the list is far too long for the length of this post. The insane fire of Fort McMurray, the photos of which stay etched in my mind. In my lifetime, I don’t ever recall seeing such an all consuming, deadly fire that literally ate an entire place. Horrible acts of terrorism that appeared all over the world, from the U.S., France, Berlin, Turkey, Syria etc, dominated the headlines…what strange times we’re living in…
My hope for 2017 is that we can somehow heal our differences. That our world has learned valuable lessons from our past so history cannot repeat itself. How wonderful it would be if we could come together to live in peace. To protect this most beautiful, wonderful planet that we all share and call home. For the non believers and skeptics of climate change, I say what if you’re wrong? What do we as a species stand to lose if the planet continues to heat up?
According to Viktor Schauberger, water is the blood of the earth. For those who don’t know who Schauberger was, he was an Austrian forester born in the late 1800’s who by his observation of nature and water, had some truly insightful understandings about the nature of water. His predictions about water shortages and climate change prove precient today. For Schauberger, water was a living substance and had both a healthy and unhealty temperature. If water would reach above a certain temperature, it would lose it’s health and vitality. If the waters of the planet heat up too much this will have huge ramifications for our planet and the earth’s ecosystem. You can read more about Viktor Schauberger here.
Last night I had the pleasure to watch Bon Iver – Live at the Pioneer Works Warehouse in Brooklyn NPR (Full Concert HD). Their latest album 22, A Million is awesome. You can watch the full concerts from Eaux Claire and NPR below, happy 2017, wishing you all the very best:)
