many of you already know
my friend

if you don't
he works on a tug boat
and
writes about life and his thoughts
on and off land
and
in a short amount of time
has become one of my favorite bloggers
~
i just got a note from him this morning
as his boat was pulling out of new york harbor
and
heading south
~~
please keep him and his crew in your thoughts
as they head over to help with the oil disaster

  3. done.

    and this is such a tragedy. I honestly don't think our earth will ever be the same.

    I sit here in my air conditioned house, barely giving a thought most of the time to the real implications of what are consumption does.

    as "green" as we try to be, we are using something beyond the scope of our understanding I think.

  11. So many people are willing and able to help but probably the only thing they can do is help remove the birds from the oil. Sad job.
