Significato Newsletter - 2014-005
Summer, summer summer! We thought it would never come. Everywhere we look is the ample, vital, opulent wealth of green leaves, the intoxicating fragrance of lilacs and wild roses, the insistent lawns poking up again soon after mowing, the incessant chatter and song of birds building nests and raising young. We are excited when we see bees on the clovers and wild flowers, and we pray for their survival. We hope for the coming of the butterflies too, and the bats at night, and for the bounty of our gardens, and wild herbs and berries. Summer is a welcome guest, we cherish her brief and sunny visit! more

As I look out my window I see bright green buds on the lilac bushes, I hear birds singing in the trees, and see the grass awakening. This morning in the rain, I saw worms on the pavement. (Why do they do that?) In this volume of The Significato Journal, Photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo, has advice about photographing what you're passionate about, Grace Brown wrote about her love for musician, Tom Waits, and we are featuring a review of singer, Mary Fahl, in concert. Don't miss her if she has a show in your area, she is a force of nature. We hope this finds you well and we wish you an ecstatically happy spring! more

Dylan Thomas wrote; "Here in this ornamental winter, Down pelts the naked weather", and boy did we experience that in North America this year. But April has come now, and the birds are nesting, the earthworms are wiggling, and some of us are hanging our warm coats away for a while. Please enjoy the morsels here including a lovely swim with whales in Hawaii with guest writer, Leslie Foxfire Stager, as well as learning a bit about the huge parental heart of Abraham Lincoln in an article by William Kashatus. Thank you for joining us, and enjoy! more

When Spring seems long in coming, we suffer awaiting the warmer temperatures, the appearance of blossoms and migrating birds. This year has seemed especially hard, with tempests and storms and the lashing of severe temperatures and precipitation falling upon us. We long to feel the warm sun shining on our heads, and to see and smell the blossoms in our gardens.

We long to see the birds building their nests, and once again plant seeds in the spring mud. We feel gratitude for all the faces of life on this sacred planet, and know that when she is ready, earth will awaken in the Northern Hemisphere to the call of spring, as she closes down in her winter cocoons in the Southern Hemisphere. We thank Mother Nature for her constancy and honor her timetables. more

Even though we still have snow on the ground in Maine, we were blessed with the appearance of dozens of robins this week - hopefully a herald of spring. Last month we ran a feature on the problem of human trafficking by Maureen Spagnolo.

As well as sharing bits about inspirational inventions or musical events, we want to get the word out about things we can do to help the world. Our prayers are with those at the Sochi Olympics right now, hoping that the model of worldwide friendship reflected in the games can help with greater understanding and harmony across the world. Please enjoy this issue of Significato. Blessings to all. more

The wonderful thing about a year's ending, is that it is right next to a new year's beginning. As we reach the end of this year, and review our personal lives, and the state of the planet, there are many things we can resolve to let go of that no longer serve us, and improvements we can make right now for the sake of all. Mr. Mandela's advice is particularly fitting at this time. At any moment we can decide to begin anew, calling in attributes that will enhance our lives and those around us. May love flower in the hearts of humanity, and transform this beautiful earth into a place of harmony and peace. Blessings to all in 2014. more

Eleanor Roosevelt's words resonate just right as the year 2013 winds down. The leaves in the northern hemisphere are falling while new growth begins in the southern hemisphere. The universe carries on in its inimitable way while human beings seek deliverance from confusion and sorrow. We pray our consciences may indeed grow tender, for that may be the key to solving everything. We wish you blessings. more

The summer has finished, the autumnal equinox has passed, the harvest moon has waxed and waned, and we are slowly feeling cooler temperatures! To quell your shivering, Peter has written about the warmest coat in the world. Maureen has more excellent photography advice, and we have a sampling of poetry and music. Plus, we have joyous news about beagles freed from laboratories. Enjoy! more

This is the last week of August, and even though there is another month of summer, the fact that schools are opening again makes us feel like the summer is coming to an end. Take that last swim, that last hour of sun-bathing, eat another bowl of fresh blueberries, or sleep out under the stars while you still can. Enjoy! more

Happy Lammas Day Everybody! Lammas comes from the Old English word, "loaf-mass", a bygone harvest celebration. It is the day - officially August 1st - although this year it was August 6 - that falls between the summer solstice and the autumn equinox, heralding the half-way point of North American summer. Featuring the joyous face of the sunflower seems apropos for this. Savor this weather as our planet gently tilts its bashful face again. more
