Little East Bay, seen in the photograph above, is located here at Dowses Beach in Osterville, Massachusetts. Although understated when compared to the Nantucket Sound just to the left of the image, it is still home to the Great Blue Heron, Cormorants, Buffleheads, Osprey, Cardinal, Blue Jay, Black Back Seagulls and a countless variety of Life that is just as precious as the Life that lives in the deep blue sea. We cannot ignore the smaller “less significant” bodies of water any more than we can disregard what is happening in Haiti right NOW. Everything is connected whether we choose to believe it or not. The Great Blue Heron needs this small sanctuary next to the Sound, just as much as the whale needs the breath of the Atlantic, open and free, in order to live it’s life as it was creatively designed to do. As the port of Port-of-Prince begins the arduous task of cleaning up after a catastrophic earthquake that occurred on Tuesday at 4:53 p.m. in the second poorest nation on planet earth, we would be well served to de-frost our hearts and wallets and help these people, our brothers and sisters, with whatever we have to give. Have a great Saturday. Peace~ M
