sound of nature

I learned about the acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton when he was interviewed by Krista Tippett on her podcast On Being a while ago & imagined in wonder the magic of his occupation.  After dedicating his life to studying soundscapes, he had lost his hearing... so strange & mysterious this life we come to know...  I just came across this short film called Being Hear on National Geographic's  short film showcase to share with you if you haven't watched/listened to it.  Please put on some headphones & take a lovely journey of the sound of nature for a few minutes with Gordon Hempton...  Enjoy!

Creativity

“This liminal space between creation and destruction is the true domain of spirit and art. That edge is dynamic. It’s where growth can happen.” ~Fletcher Tucker

I love this quote from a beautiful article I just read about an inspiring couple living in Big Sur. This is our time, collectively & individually. With so much destruction occurring all around us, it's ripe for creativity & really the only way to growth & renewal.
