Nature Kingdom Requests our Help – SOS

Nature Kingdom Requests our Help

Pan, Lord of the Wilderness visited me with a message for humankind. This occurred while writing my first book, The Golden Ones, which became When We Were Gods. He told me that the Nature Kingdom requests our help. However, the type of help he requested surprised me. He also said that the Nature Kingdom could clean the earth for us, but had become discouraged because of our abuse, neglect, and disrespect. Nonetheless, if we gave the kind of help he requested, the Nature Kingdom could do amazing things for us and the earth. … Continue reading

Did High Temperatures in February 2017 Break Records?

Did High Temperatures in February 2017 Break Records?

Here in Virginia, USA, close to Williamsburg, we had three days in the month of February with temperatures of 81F / 27C. That is hot for this time of year! Those are Florida temperatures, not Virginia. Those are nice-days-in-summer temperatures for us! So, I ask myself, “What’s going on here? Did high temperatures in February 2017 break records? Is this climate change or what?” … Continue reading

Immediately, I thought, “Ah, the geese are flying north.” So, I thought you’d like to know the geese are on the move. If you live in Canada or the northern U.S., you’ll be pleased to know that these magnificent harbingers of spring are coming your way. I could hardly see the V’s, because the geese flew so high. They were obviously migrating rather than the couple that live around here year-round, which fly low right over the river or slightly above the treetops. Now, I wonder, did … Continue reading

Higglety Pigglety Pop Video

Higglety Pigglety Pop Video

This Higglety Pigglety Pop Video brings visuals to Maurice Sendak’s delightful story of the little dog, Jennie. In this case, Meryl Streep provides the voice of Jennie. Puppets provide the characters. I don’t know which version I like best. This one, with the enchanting scenery and characters, or the audio version of the previous post. Perhaps, the audio triumphs, because you can see the story in your own mind. Often the story in your mind develops characters and scenarios better than someone else’s rendition. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this video and think you’ll like it too. It has an English sound track … Continue reading
