Interconnectivity - Perspective Shift From Oman

She Sees The World

One thing I have learned from travelling is absolutely everything in life is connected. Sometimes we see the connections right away and other times we only see them later, when we are sitting at a hotel bar in Muscat looking at the crescent moon rise over the sea.

What's the Buzz? Volunteering With Bees

The reports get more and more threatening every day, portending a genuine doomsday situation when it comes to our world’s honey bees. It seems over a million healthy colonies of bees are dying out each year, and this alarming disappearance has been going on for over a decade. Of course, without bees, we lose our primary pollinators, so plant health degrades and eventually, if it continues, could not be sustained. Life without agriculture just ain’t gonna work.
