Blue Zones Christmas! and New Year!

Are you in a Blue Zone?  Don’t know what a Blue Zone is? Read “The Blue Zones” and “Thrive” by Dan Buettner.  Blue Zones are where life is good.

We are visiting our grandkids in California for the Christmas and New Year holidays.  We have 2 north of Sacramento and 2 northwest of LA.  Grandkids are even more fun than your own kids were.

Family is one of the key elements to living in a Blue Zone.

MLK’s Unfulfilled Dream

Dr Martin Luther King, Jr preached at evening chapel at Wesleyan University (CT) too few weeks before he was killed.  He spoke and prayed briefly with those of us in the chapel choir before the service.  Not a tall man, he was none-the-less a giant among us.  Then, he preached his dream to a packed house.

He dreamed of a day when all persons could mingle and live together free of the superficial factors of race, ethnicity, economic class, religious denomination, or political affiliation. He dreamed of a day of peaceful cooperation among all peoples.

Unfortunately we remain too much human and too little humane.  All of us.  On this day let us all remember that we are each part of the problem.  Let us all strive to be part of the solution as well.  A unified society which must include us all.  Let us fulfill the dream.

Puffball Birds

Our birdfeeders have been mobbed by birds looking like puffballs.  With temps below zero F, everyone has their feathers fluffed out as far as possible, but especially the house finches.  Chickadees, juncos, cardinals, blue jays, goldfinches, downey woodpecker and the occasional house sparrow are all bundled up for cold too.  Great news – haven’t seen or heard crows in weeks.

Take time to step into the Blue Zones of the natural world.  All life is wonderful.

Christmas Blue Zones

Grandkids are Blue Zones.

We visited the younger set (Trevor and Isabel) through Christmas morning in Chicagoland.  Isabel is just learning to crawl.  Trevor has forgotten how to walk and runs all the time.  Both went bonkers over the packages under the tree.

We arrived in the Pacific Northwest Christmas evening to see the older set.  Gwen at 4 is now a Big Girl full of chatter on all topics.  She thoroughly enjoyed a very good Nutcracker (Balanchine choreography).  RJ at 7 is a hockey fanatic.  We watched him practice and watched the World Juniors (under 21) with him on the TV.  He knew all the US players and many others who play in the NHL.  Children’s museum, etc too.

Now work starts again tomorrow
