The Joys of Summer

On Monday June 22 I was swinging on the porch at nearby Dunrovin Ranch with SuzAnne Miller, where we broadcasted “The Joys of Summer” the afternoon immediately following the summer solstice.

We enjoyed talking about how summertime creates different meanings and memories for people worldwide, and shared observations of the cycles, rhythms and routines humans and their wild and domesticated brethren tend to follow here in Big Sky Country, as well as farther afield.

About mid-way through our 23-minute chat I led participants and viewers through a brief nature connection visualization along a stretch of the Bitterroot River that borders Dunrovin Ranch, so if you have limited time, go to about the ten minute mark on the video to experience and enjoy this meditation.

I hope you’ll take time to enjoy our entire conversation via this YouTube link, though, and that it’ll inspire you to slow down, savor the moment and enjoy the gifts that summer so freely gives all of us.

Feel free to share and forward the link, too, and SuzAnne and I will get together again close to the fall equinox and the winter solstice share the joys of those upcoming seasons.

Enjoy, and here’s that link:  https://youtu.be/KvfTcOg3Dms

MontanaPrideFlag June is Pride Month for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, and questioning people (and their countless allies!) worldwide, and this year Pride Montana will be held in our beloved town of Missoula from June 19-21.

Here’s hoping you’ll join us in Missoula, or wherever your feet may be that weekend, to celebrate, acknowledge and express gratitude for the progress we have made over the past decade, and to acknowledge and energize for the remaining work necessary to achieve full equality for all LGBTQ families and individuals worldwide. The non-profit Pride Foundation inspires giving to expand opportunities to advance full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people (LGBTQ) across the U.S. Northwest, including the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. They envision a world in which all LGBTQ youth, adults and families enjoy the freedom to live openly, safely and genuinely.

To honor the vital work that Pride Foundation does, I will donate three dollars to them from every “Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There: Four Fun and Easy Steps to Create Your Powerful Nature Connection Sit Spot, No Matter Where Your Feet Are” nature connection sit spot recording purchased between now through Montana Pride Weekend this Sunday, June 21, 2015.

to bring home more nature into your own life and those of others you care about, and know that three dollars from your $13.97 purchase amount is going to a phenomenally important cause. The world is full of stories from people for whom nature has changed, inspired or turned their lives around, and you really never know how important nature connection is to you and your own one wild precious life until you need it most.

Enjoy more nature in your home and work setting, and best of all share it with others.This portable, adaptable, and fun nature connection tool and recording powerfully supports and serves so many people in consistently creating, envisioning and allowing a nature sit spot to enhance our lives.

“You know they say that if you imagine peace and calm, your body experiences it. Well, Hobie’s audio course, “Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There!” really brought me to a space of balance and calmness. And best yet? I was sitting at my desk. No need to go anywhere, and most importantly, do anything but breathe”.      -Maureen Calamia, St. James, New York

Pride Foundation is the only non-profit organization I am selecting to support in 2015 through a percentage of PayPal sales, so now is the golden moment to support them through your love of nature and its amazing diversity of all life forms. Take home your own copy of “Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There” (and buy a copy for other nature lovers) and support Pride Foundation, too!
