The Coming of Spring and Easter March 18

DSCF2768Ambassador of the Cosmos

33For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
-John 6

When I hold a piece of bread, I look at it, and sometimes I smile at it.  The piece of bread is an ambassador of the cosmos offering nourishment and support.  Looking deeply into this piece of  bread, I see the sunshine, the clouds, the great earth. Without the sunshine,  no wheat can grow.  Without the great earth, nothing can grow.  That is why the piece of bread that I hold in my hand is a wonder of life. It is there for all of us. We have to be there for it.
-Thich Nhat Hanh

About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
