.    Happy Mother’s Day!  And let’s all especially wish a happy Mother’s Day to Mother Earth too.  She is all we have, and we all need to take better care of her (by recycling, using green energy, and planting more trees and such), not neglecting her.  We can’t (as many foolish scientists suggest) leave home to go to another planet when things get bad here; some scientists are suggesting the wrong things; we have to wake up and treat her much better!  Mother Earth is not at all separate from all true, good mothers!

        Song of the Earth

 

All is beautiful,
      All is beautiful…All is beautiful, indeed.

Now the Mother Earth, and the Father Sky…  Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.

All is beautiful… All is beautiful…  All is beautiful, indeed.

Sisnajinni, Tsodsichl,
    Meeting, joining one another,

Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

Now Doko-oslid and Depenitsa…  Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

And the night of darkness… And the dawn of light… Meeting, joining one another… Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful…All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

Now Hastyeyalli and Hastyehogan… Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

And the white corn and the yellow corn… Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

And the corn-pollen and the Ripener… Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.  
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed.

Life-that-never-passeth,
Happiness-of-all-things… Meeting, joining one another,
    Helpmates ever, they.
      All is beautiful… All is beautiful… All is beautiful, indeed. 

Now all is beautiful,
      All is beautiful,
      All is beautiful, indeed.

First thing in the morning, many birds sprightly sing to the joy of the new day, returning sun, and the exhilaration of being and sharing! :)

You might think she’s ugly, but…

.      You might think she’s ugly… but she has tied a little webbing — on her rear leg to the cement — to remind herself not to leave any time soon… and (though rather emaciated and hungry) she is not moving; so she is a very caring and good mother.  That, my friends, is beautiful!

.    (Fishing Spiders get quite large.  Some, legs included, can be over 3 inches long.  Some can dive underwater to catch prey, or they catch prey near the surface of the water, even minnows.  It is unusual for spiders to eat vertebrates, but these do!  Females guard their eggs sacs for quite a long time… often over a month, not eating while doing so.  The one below was on cement on the bank of a river.  It was rather strange about how i came upon it. While at home, i had a premonition that if i went to the river bank…  i’d see an unusually nice, large spider there.  I grabbed a camera and walked to the river bank; as i approached the bank, the spider could be seen from quite a distance and one realized immediately that that was what the intimation was about.  It didn’t budge while i took shots; then i politely left it with its highly precious orb.)
