Listen to the Song of Nature

Listen to the Song of Nature

By Amba Gale

February 9 is the “echoing” day of my birth.

My husband and I gifted me with a journey to Muir’s Valley, Yosemite, now a Valley belonging to us all, where nature graces us with her beauty, her power, her wonder, her awesome, and the heart can sing with the rivers and the streams.

Today, instead of some prose, may I offer you a few Blessings, and the gifts of pleasure, enjoyment, and heart-song as you listen to my husband Don’s original Bluegrass song, Shadowline. Accompanied by our video, I invite you to delight with us in the shadows cast by the trees, the mountains, the boulders. Give yourself a pause, a Stop, as you listen to the song of nature. Enjoy the Great Merced as she rushes and wraps around her boulders, dancing in a loving caress, on her way home to the sea.

May your own journey be filled with warmth of the sun.
May your heart be filled with the delight of the music from the rivers
and streams of your life.
May you embrace and watch the play of light and shadow in its ever – changing forms as you journey through your life, on the way to your home.

May your day be gladdened by my husband’s song, from his recently released CD, “Looking Back, Looking In,” and the visuals of our wonderings through Yosemite.

 

 

Merced, on Birthday Morning

By Amba Gale

Hello, Merced
you green flowing graceful Queen
of all the rivers,
sunlight sparkling like jewels
on your robe of green,
glowing
with your laughter through my childhood,
sewing
all my younger days with gladness,
growing with me,
as I lean into life.

May I flow, like you,
Surprised, joyful, delighted
by the currents carrying me
to my own sea.

Where are you located?

When seeing a strange photograph like the one above, you might, perhaps, think I am asking you about the geographical location.  I am, however, not. I am, instead, asking you a question around where you are located when you are with anther human being. .…At first glance, this may occur to you as a peculiar question, for sure, but one, when responded to with “over there, with them,” makes all the difference in the essential quality of the conversation. When you are truly “over there, with them,” what can open up is a profound quality of connection, and the person…

Making a New Beginning

“The time is always right to do what is right.”          – Martin Luther King This is a time of new beginnings, for my life, for our lives, for the world. In the last few years, we have been navigating our way through the challenging space of constraints, cocooning ourselves in our home, finding new ways for living a life worth living. In the midst of the trauma of such a sudden change, the separation of ourselves from a world that had a certain momentum, we find ourselves at the brink of questions that want to be…
