Leading the Way


We live in times of uncertainty, but of one thing I am certain: We can create compassionate communities wherever we are. I am grateful for my blogging community. We have learned how to forge connections across the globe. Together, we have built a virtual community that supports and encourages, shares knowledge and wisdom, fosters hope and resilience.

Take care. Keep Safe. Be Well.

    • So glad you enjoyed the geese. Yes, this is a common occurrence. The best is yet to come with the young goslings which should arrive in a few weeks. They follow behind the parents in a dutiful line. What I find most amusing is that the geese families prefer to walk in the bike lanes rather than the pedestrian lanes. They take on the bikes without fear and remind us all that they have the right-of-way.

  1. Hope and resilience are so important! Our blogging community also shares the very key for growing these attributes, namely creativity. As we write, record, photograph, film, and sift through resources for our blog posts, we focus our creative energies in order to share something of value with each other. Thank you for all your beautiful, inspiring creative contributions just like this one. We need this now more than ever!

    • I love these geese, especially when they fly overhead. Sometimes they deign to mingle among us mortals and walk side by side with us. And that gives me a sense of completion. We belong to this world, to the soil, to the water, trees and air. Now, I’m hoping they will give me flight lessons….. Hugs!

    Once again, I love your video. The geese are gorgeous; and the bike rider was surely one of those fine individuals we sometimes encounter throughout our journeys. Such consideration is a wonderful gift to give.

    • I remember the first time I pressed the publish button! I held my breath and wondered what would happen next. I never realized how incredible that “next” would be through the ensuing years. With that first “publish”, I became linked across the globe to an incredible community. I am delighted and thrilled that we connected.

      • It has been quite an incredible journey, Rebecca; so much is valued.
        One thing I didn’t have an inkling about was how much I would learn about myself! I didn’t realise, at that time, how much there was to learn.
        It really does ‘take a village’.
