Independence Day

Happy Saturday, July 4th! How did you celebrate? Did you consider how lucky we are to be alive at this time on this beautiful planet?

Did you change plans this year, because of the virus?

Did you spend time in nature? With family? With friends?

Were you traveling? Partying? How about fireworks?

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...."

Were you free to pursue happiness today?

What did that look like? Feel like?

I was content to catch up on mowing, weeding, and planning. Now, I am looking forward to the Lunar Eclipse & New "Blessing" Moon tomorrow...and the Sacred Circle at 3:00 pm.

Right now the animal world is championing us. Hoping we find some common, unifying ground among ourselves and t…
