As Cape Cod braces for the remnants of Hurricane Ida, expected to hit the area sometime later tonight and into the week end, the gold of the leaves splashes presence. Sitting at Dowses Beach this morning, playing and writing music, I noticed the Buffleheads bobbing on the white caps in the outlet to East Bay. Buffleheads are migratory birds, resembling ducks, that make their way here every Fall and are with us into the Spring. Their small, round bodies are covered with black and white feathers, with the male being a little louder in color than the female. Watching these guys swim around, diving down to retrieve a sunfish or the like, always brings back my spirit, as the Osprey leave for the winter. When one bird leaves another takes it’s place. Embracing change and adapting to what IS, what REALLY IS, propels one’s life in a completely different direction. Nature is the great equalizer and pacifier of our troubled souls in this country and around the world…MSNBC will air a new program on November 22, 2009 called “100 heartbeats”, a documentary on our furry, feathered and fragile friends around the globe. Many of these animals are on the endangered species list and as hard as it is for me to watch these programs, I am compelled to. For it is of paramount importance that we look as hard at what is going on to the Polar Bear as we do to any other human concern. For this is OUR GREATEST CONCERN! The plight of these creatures of God is our own and instead of being afraid of a problem made by man, let us look at solutions that we, as we have every RIGHT to do, can dispense starting with the upcoming world conference on global warming in Copenhagen, Denmark in December of this year. The Buffleheads are calling! Have a great Thursday! Peace~ M
