Although the shallow seas occupy 8 percent of the ocean’s surface, they are brimming with life including 90 percent of the world’s commercial fisheries.
Most shallow seas occur along continental shelves — underwater extensions of the continents stretching about 50 miles with exceptions like the Pacific in South America (less than a half a mile) and off the Arctic coast of Siberia which extends some 450 miles. Water depths rarely exceed 650… Continue

Autumn brings splendid colors to trees and shrubs throughout the West. It is the time when we are reminded of magnificent grouse and ptarmigans (pronounced TAR-mi-gun) that live in our woods.
Grouse and ptarmigans are essentially wild chicken-like critters that are able to fly. There are five species of grouse and three species of alpine ptarmigans that live throughout the West. Some grouse seasonally migrate. Only when food supply is very limited do… Continue

What Herculean work,to become the highest ideal that conscience dictates.Yet the choice of mediocrity and compromise seems a more gravity laden burden. With fierce determination I press onwards, grateful for the burden of spiritual achievement for the outcome of that burden and achievement is the neutralization of gravity and the alchemical transformation of burden into knowledge and wisdom.That is how I see it.

Special to The Sacramento Bee
PUBLISHED SUNDAY, OCT. 18, 2009
Over the past three years more than 50 billion honeybees have died. Scientists understand the causes and now we need everyone to lend a helping hand.
The humble honeybee has been inextricably linked to humankind since prehistoric times – at first we were drawn to this remarkable creature because of its sweet honey.
Honey is to a bee what electricity is for… Continue

Giant squids measuring in excess of 60 feet and weighing a whopping 1,275 pounds are the most mysterious and the least known gigantic critter on Earth.
Cephalopods — from the Greek “head-footed” — have at least eight arms, and this includes all octopuses; cuttlefishes and squids have two additional tentacles that they can shoot out to capture prey. Chambered nautilus, the most primitive of all living Cephalopods, have as many… Continue

A couple billion years ago the ocean was the cradle of life. Throughout the ages it’s been the gateway to riches, exploration and colonization. Now it holds the answers to the climate and ultimately our survival.
English author Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) taught navigation in the royal household. One of his students was Princess Philippa who, by marriage, became the queen of Portugal. Her son Henry loved to listen to her stories about the sea. He grew… Continue

The most colorful time of year is autumn. It's brief and should be celebrated outdoors, before the colors fade and the trees drop their leaves. Become a "leaf-peeper" and open your eyes to nature's glorious hues of scarlet, gold and wine.
In order to understand autumn colors we must examine the leaf. Leaves have spent the winter tightly wrapped in a cover of weather-resistant scales, and emerge in spring from buds formed the previous… Continue

Here's just an excerpt from an essay I've been reading called "Manifesting the Vision" by Rama J. Vernon, founder of the Center for International Dialogue. I hope it inspires all of you on a challenging path:
"If we can keep a sense of 'non doing' or inaction within each of our actions, we will not grow tired or feel the need to withdraw to recuperate. As we combine a sense of ease, of stillness within our activity, we will feel renewed each hour.
The following guidelines… Continue

The history of Zion began before the first dinosaurs. There are nine different distinct layers of sedimentary rock within the park. Each formation is unique in its composition, revealing the secret of time with… Continue

I was so warmed by the crowd that came to make music together at the Bergan County Meetup in NJ. One woman stood out above the rest. Little did I know I would pass her test. The rest I must confess is private. However she loves the camera and to model. Since I am a photographer at my core, I was more than happy to know her and learn how much she likes posing! Expect some great work to come out of our… Continue

Tsunamis (pronounced soo-NAH-mee) is a Japanese word meaning “habor wave”. They can be a single wave but more likely a series of waves. When they land onshore they are truly killer waves.
Tsunamis are triggered by submarine earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions and even meteorite impacts. In the open ocean the waves are small, and they can travel thousands of kilometers at speeds of 603 miles per hour or as fast as a jet plane can… Continue
