For many of us who watch PBS in America, the Wayne Dyer specials were meaningful encounters, giving us a larger perspective on what life is all about. His 2013 feature film The Shift – From Ambition to Meaningwas my last encounter with Wayne Dyer.

If you too were a Wayne Dyer fan, take an evening this week to watch it with someone you love.

“I want to thank our negotiating partners — the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China, as well as the European Union — for our unity in this effort, which showed that the world can do remarkable things when we share a vision of peacefully addressing conflicts. We showed what we can do when we do not split apart.”

This is one paragraph from Obama’s Statement on Iran that really resonated with me.

“The Old Fool” writing from Greencroft Assisted Living

President Obama quoted President Kennedy, who stood before the American people and said, “Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.”

A post today from “The Old Fool” really got me to thinking. Martin is now in Assisted Living at Greencroft in Goshen, Indiana. But his words resonate loud and clear to an audience that is tired of the division we have used to draw lines between people, between states and nations.

The more we think of “the other” as neighbor, like ourselves, the more we can begin to understand all the perspectives that set nations one against another, and begin to heal, and join, and erase boundaries.

IN THIS DAY AND AGE we need to be thinking deeply about how to erase boundaries, how to live as one people on planet earth, how to seek what we have in common rather than what differentiates.

We are one people on a single planet, this Earth we call home. It is high time we come to see that we are all in this one existance together, and learn to understand each other and live together with as much harmony as we can muster. Why? Because after all, we may not be the species that survives on this planet. Something more compatible with the frailties of this planet may emerge and take our place, and no bickering amongst ourselves will stop that evolution, if we cannot find a better way to coexist.

I for one applaude the President’s efforts to bring nations together to agree on how to coexist, without destroying one another. And it gives me hope that we humans have a future here on planet Earth.

crowdfunding - feral cats projectI spent a few hours yesterday assembling a fun KITTENS VIDEO to go on this Feral Cats Project crowdfunding campaign. Made some final changes to the campaign description, the goal, the layout etc. I’ve done my market testing to be sure I have a few friends that want to contribute. (Hey, we even received an actual donation to the campaign already!) And I’ve been expecting to throw the switch and launch this 7-day campaign on our local Goshen Funded crowdfunding site​ some time this evening.

In the meantime, a funny thing has happened…

There was only one kitten hanging out on the back porch yesterday morning. By noon the kitten was gone. The whole cat family has up and left, and we don’t know where they have gone. Mama and Papa cat, who we have seen every day for the past three weeks, were nowhere to be seen yesterday. They did not return yesterday evening. They did not retreat to the back porch during the rain last night. There are no cats in our backyard this morning. They’ve up and moved. So with the disappearance of our star performers, the campaign is on hold, at least until we can discover where they’ve gone to.

Mother cats do predictably move their kittens around. At three to four weeks, the kittens are out and about, beginning to eat solid food, and are probably outgrowing their “nest.” In our case, after about three weeks the kittens had pretty well explored every part of our backyard. Most mother cats will move their litter at least once. First-time mamas will move them more frequently.

Too much attention may cause a move. We had a couple friends at our house on Friday, and there was quite a bit of doting over the adorable kittens. Cats are generally quiet, private creatures and don’t like too much attention. So that may have been what triggered this abrupt move.

Will we see these cats again? Our guess is they haven’t gone too far. We were not feeding the cats, but perhaps someone else in the neighborhood took pity on the mama and was feeding her regularly. She may have wanted the whole family to get a piece of the action.

As for the papa cat, no surprise that we have not seen him either because he adored that tortie. He practically worshiped her. He was gentle with the kittens too, but clearly it was the mama he was most devoted to. In all likelihood he followed her wherever she has gone.

Where will I be tonight? In my backyard, watching for that Russian ISS resupply cargo ship that went into an uncontrolled spin shortly after launch on April 28th. It is due to crash down somewhere on Earth tonight, and will be spiraling in like a fireball. It’s course is very erratic, but it will be traveling generally West to East. Flying at 17,000km per hour, it’s circuit around the globe takes just 90 minutes. Of course it’s speed will be slowed significantly once it enters Earth atmosphere. And once that happens it will light up like a meteor. Could be an awesome sight to see.

Here are a couple stories about the event…
