How do you watch birds when you have no sight? I had seen a documentary about blind bird watchers: A group of blind people were guided through woods. They were able to decipher a variety of bird calls and, from the sound of it, sensed they were in the midst of thousands of birds.
The next day, I tried it. I walked to my favorite wooded path. Looking around me, I saw the flutter of a passing bird every now and then, and heard a tweet or two. Then, I closed my eyes and stood quietly. That’s when the magic began.
Blind bird-watching is a wonder. I suggest you try it.

Wax and wane, ebb and flow, love and hate, peace and war, destruction and creation; all motion makers. Look everywhere. You will see it. The push and pull of opposites supports life. When movement ceases, so does life.
This continued motion is what I wish for this new year. Thanks to all for your inspiring creativity and interesting ideas. It keeps me running!
The hardest metal yields to sufficient heat. Even so must the hardest heart melt before sufficiency of the heat of non-violence. And there is no limit to the capacity of non-violence to generate heat.
