Fairy Creek Blockade on Vancouver Island

Friends of the Broken Forests – Please Stand up for the Pacific Coast Old Growth!!

Tiel-Jones is the lumber company (https://tealjones.com/) that is killing two-thousand-year-old trees near Fairy Creek on Vancouver Island. The premier of the province of British Columbia has publicly sanctioned these executions and should be held responsible for this atrocity.

These majestic beings cannot be replaced and are the source of  much of the bio-diversity that we will need in the near future, that is found in abundance in coastal forests that have been too inaccessible for logging machines or for easy extraction.

There are literally thousands of brave, amazing folks who have been doing everything in their power to stop these crimes from happening. It is up to us to spread the word that we cannot let them do this simply for a small amount of money!! These are all living trees that must be preserved in order to sustain our true, wild and un-domesticated forests!!

A new “dancing poem” from Cesar Forero called: In Resilience

In Resilience

I am the land of fullness breathing, in my core all realms turn resilient.  Whether with a giggle or a squeal the appeal from my soul announces a reincarnation.

Dancing, with heartrending moves, then revolving and meandering…      Dancing and stirring in tune…                                                                                            Dancing and expecting for the beat.

Supernatural bloom, look deep inside, somewhere in there a new seed is sprouting.                                                                                                                                            This fruit, with free hands and arms, will flow and hover… far away!                    But today… no place is remote enough.

Dancing with arms, wings and fins…                                                                            Dancing or flowing, or, hovering in tune…                                                                  Dancing and torquing the hips with the beat.

The new life is coming giggling, twittering, and bobbling full of presence and with its own empire.                                                                                                                  Going everywhere with the illusion of finding the love that changes worlds and gives life to hope.

Dancing with feathers, flapping or simply flowing by the wind.                    Dancing with energy that manoeuvres the tune.                                                  Dancing to endure our souls to the beat.

We are soon at the existence of glory, the light that resists and the social presence letting us love.                                                                                                                  A day that wobbles to the tune of love and a day when we converse about the mysteries of joy.

Proof of Proto-forest 385 Million Years old

Scientists have discovered the world’s oldest forest in an abandoned quarry near Cairo, New York. The 385-million-year-old rocks contain the fossilized woody roots of dozens of ancient trees. The find marks a turning point in Earth’s history. When trees evolved these roots, they helped pull carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and lock it away, radically shifting the planet’s climate and leading to the atmosphere we know today.
