June 4--Love for Self & Mother Earth; Wedding Day!

The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.  --Rachel Carson

    This applies both to the planet and to our individual bodies. I believe one of the results of 12-step recovery is learning to value oneself, and as that becomes more integrated into one's psyche, there is less desire to abuse oneself with a substance or addictive practice. 
    Likewise, the appreciation of our magnificent Mother Earth--"the wonders and realities of the universe about us"--should, and I believe is, leading us to take more loving care of the place we call home. It's a slow process, turning around our dominating, destructive patterns. 
    Back to my adventure... yesterday folks arrived from parts distant, and we had a lot of hang time to catch up and enjoy being together once again. Necessary pre-wedding tasks were completed. 
    Today is the big day!
