60 Seconds: Sea Lions and Apple Trees and Hope.
by Diane Wyzga | October 29, 2020 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Walking the bluffs 100 feet above Admiralty Inlet I caught sight of a large raft of California sea lions barking, flippers flying, rolling like thunder, roiling the water. I counted a dozen of them – probably a harem with a bull – and from the activity maybe another male was trying to muscle in. The males weigh about 1100 pounds so it was quite a show. So much so that the Port Townsend ferry slowed as it came nearer.
And then they were gone. Nothing but still water.
Martin Luther said, “Even if I was to learn that the world would go to pieces in the morning I would still plant the apple tree.”
To me, sea lions and apple trees both are evidence of hope.
Bonus: While California sea lions most often haul out along our coast and farther north, 1 chose to perch – all 600 pounds – on the roof of a small car – in our local boatyard.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic.
