In the Hearts of Men

It is also true that we have been given free will; the ability, through thought and action, to choose how we proceed in this life on Earth. She is a living, breathing thing; this Earth we live on. She is our Mother and our responsibility. How do you treat your Mother? What responsibility to you take in her future…our home?

We can judge the heart of a man

by his treatment of animals.

Man has been given a marvelous thing: nature. We are its guardians, caregivers…and, all too often…its destroyers.

Free will

It is also true that we have been given free will; the ability, through thought and action, to choose how we proceed in this life on Earth. She is a living, breathing thing; this Earth we live on. She is our Mother and our responsibility. How do you treat your Mother? What responsibility to you take in her future…our home?

Animals and Men

This is especially true for the animals that we depend on and who depend on us. Unless you are a vegan, they are our food. We must be concerned with how they are raised and brought to our table, their treatment will affect us as well. On the other hand, we have domesticated animals that we call pets. From birds we keep in cages to the horses we keep in barns, but especially the cats and dogs that have become a member of the family.

These animals that we have taken out of their natural environment and brought into our homes. Fido and Fluffy should be treated with the utmost respect, kindness and love. All too often, we see stories of abuse and abandonment. This is a reflection of the heart of their owner. For, as an abuser can do this to an innocent animal, so can it be done to anyone.

Have a Heart

There is a current admonition, “If you see something, say something.”

This applies not only to strange or suspicious behavior in public, but also to those things you may see or be aware of through personal contact. We are each others’ keepers. That goes not only for humans, but for animals…as well as nature.

Inner Space – Marble Caves

Gorgeous and surreal! I wanna go!
Marble Caves

Astronomy and Law

Normally, I show a lot of space related stuff (hence the name of the blog), but every once and a while you need to look inward at the beauty of our little (and I do mean little) part of the Universe.  I want to go to Chile to visit the great astronomical telescopes high in the mountains.  But after seeing these pictures, I have another reason to want to visit.  Enjoy.

Marble Caves, Patagonia, Chile

 Marble Caves, Patagonia, Chile

The Marble Caves of Patagonia, Chile, are beautiful vibrant blue caverns, partially submerged in the equally stunning turquoise waters of Carrera Lake. The lake itself is on the border of Argentina and Chile, with the caves located on the Chilean side. The caves are comprised of three main caverns: the Chapel (La Capilla), the Cathedral (El Catedral), and the Cave (La Cueva). Visitors to the caves can explore them in a small boat or kayak…

West Coast Trail (photo hike)

Canadian Hiking Photography’s West Coast Trail hike

Eagle in flight

Once we reached our camp site for the night, we setup our tents and I walked down the beach with Jimmy to take some photos. The fog was especially dense that night, and the longer we got into our walk the darker and more eerie it became. At one point we thought something was running towards us.. turns out it was just a bear shaped log.
