On Polliwogs in a Pond: To life!

Back from a camping vacation in which Bonita and I paddled four lakes with lots of critters to be in awe of. These pics of thousands of polliwogs in Beaver Lake in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State are among my most treasured of the 650 we took. To life! We all need to get away from time to time to reconnect with what is important for us, and then get back into the thick of things. To life! -gwd
Evil is always lack of life. If the lower side of man’s nature is disproportionately developed, the remedy is not less life for that side, but more life for the higher side, so that the balance may be restored. “I am come,” said Christ, “that ye may have life and that ye may have it more abundantly.” That is what we all need—life, more life, the life that is life indeed! Bahá’u’lláh’s message is the same as Christ’s. “Today,” He says, “this servant has assuredly come to vivify the world” (Tablet to Ra’ís), and to His followers He says: “Come ye after Me, that We may make you to become quickeners of mankind.” (Tablet to the Pope.)
