From the Desk of George Barnard.
This Australia based communications hub has become a busy place. There
are almost 5000 subscribers to the French, Spanish and English lists.
An estimated 10,000 regularly visit our 11:11 websites, and there are
now 27 immediate members contributing transmissions, translations, involved
in IT and message board duties, or answering questions via the Internet.
When we do find time to smell the roses, we generally prefer
to smell the salt in the air at our favorite beach where there are shells
aplenty and rock pools galore. On occasions we find the fragile external
skeleton of a sea urchin, the delicate pattern of which we both much
admire, and there is one such -- rather large perfect specimen -- on
one of our bedside tables.
A few nights ago we were awakened, just to note that it was 3:33 AM,
and to see the sea urchin specimen on its side, perfectly balanced on
three shells. If we took it off, and tried to replace it, we would likely
have a tough time repeating that tricky move. The sea urchin is only
just sitting there. On April 8, 2007 there was a message.
Mathew: It was I who placed your natures gem on its
side. We are teachers one and all, and yet, as you have often found,
we are not devoid of humor. Despite our different space-time locations
we are much like you. We make our task a fun-task whenever we can.
A change in weather, a strong breeze, may well dislodge the urchin
from it cradle. Likewise, a change in circumstances may well up-end
you for a time. Indeed, you may un-knowingly be walking a fine line
between effectiveness and mental chaos. Stay cool and whenever
the winds of change knock you over, pick yourself up again, and find
that perfect balance. This is Midwayer Mathew.
