often play Devil's Advocate to our Greater Good when we become
impatient with the natural and gradual blossoming of our own

HERE TO FIND OUT HOW

world without a bit of risk to yourself!
From the Inside Out
times my daughter had telephoned to say, "Mother, you must
come and see the daffodils before they are over." I wanted
to go, but it was a two-hour drive from Laguna to Lake Arrowhead.
Going and coming took most of a day and I honestly did not
have a free day until the following week. "I will come next
Tuesday, " I promised, a little reluctantly, on her third
Tuesday dawned cold and rainy. Still, I had promised, and so I drove
the length of Route 91, continued on I-215, and finally turned onto
Route 18 and began to drive up the mountain highway. The tops of
the mountains were sheathed in clouds, and I had gone only a few
miles when the road was completely covered with a wet, gray blanket
of fog. I slowed to a crawl, my heart pounding. The road becomes
narrow and winding toward the top of the mountain. As I executed
the hazardous turns at a snail's pace, I was praying to reach the
turnoff at Blue Jay that would signify I had arrived. When I finally
walked into Carolyn's house and hugged and greeted my grandchildren
I said, "Forget the daffodils, Carolyn! The road is invisible
in the clouds and fog, and there is nothing in the world except
you and these darling children that I want to see bad enough to
drive another inch!" My daughter smiled calmly, "We
drive in this all the time, Mother." "Well,
you won't get me back on the road until it clears and then
I'm heading for home!" I assured her. "I was hoping
you'd take me over to the garage to pick up my car. The mechanic
just called, and they've finished repairing the engine,"
she answered. "How far will we have to drive?"
I asked cautiously. "Just a few blocks," Carolyn
said cheerfully. So we buckled up the children and went out to my
car. "I'll drive," Carolyn offered. "I'm
used to this." We got into the car, and she began driving.
a few minutes I was aware that we were back on the Rim-of-the-World
Road heading over the top of the mountain. "Where are we
going?" I exclaimed, distressed to be back on the mountain
road in the fog. "This isn't the way to the garage!"
going to my garage the long way," Carolyn smiled, "by
way of the daffodils." "Carolyn," I said sternly,
trying to sound as if I was still the mother and in charge of the
situation, "please turn around. There is nothing in the
world that I want to see enough to drive on this road in this weather."
"It's all right, Mother," She replied with a knowing
grin. "I know what I'm doing. I promise, you will never
forgive yourself if you miss this experience." And so my
sweet, darling daughter who had never given me a minute of difficulty
in her whole life was suddenly in charge and she was kidnapping
me! I couldn't believe it. Like it or not, I was on the way to see
some ridiculous daffodils driving through the thick, gray
silence of the mist-wrapped mountaintop at what I thought was risk
to life and limb. I muttered all the way. After about twenty minutes
we turned onto a small gravel road that branched down into an oak-filled
hollow on the side of the mountain. The Fog had lifted a little,
but the sky was lowering, gray and heavy with clouds. We parked
in a small parking lot adjoining a little stone church. From our
vantage point at the top of the mountain we could see beyond us,
in the mist, the crests of the San Bernardino range like the dark,
humped backs of a herd of elephants. Far below us the fog-shrouded
valleys, hills, and flatlands stretched away to the desert. On the
far side of the church I saw a pine-needle-covered path, with towering
evergreens and manzanita bushes and an inconspicuous, lettered sign
"Daffodil Garden." We each took a child's hand,
and I followed Carolyn down the path as it wound through the trees.
mountain sloped away from the side of the path in irregular dips,
folds, and valleys, like a deeply creased skirt. Live oaks, mountain
laurel, shrubs, and bushes clustered in the folds, and in the gray,
drizzling air, the green foliage looked dark and monochromatic.
I shivered. Then we turned a corner of the path, and I looked up
and gasped. Before me lay the most glorious sight, unexpectedly
and completely splendid. It looked as though someone had taken a
great vat of gold and poured it down over the mountain peak and
slopes where it had run into every crevice and over every rise.
in the mist-filled air, the mountainside was radiant, clothed in
massive drifts and waterfalls of daffodils. The flowers were planted
in majestic, swirling patterns, great ribbons and swaths of deep
orange, white, lemon yellow, salmon pink, saffron, and butter yellow.
Each different-colored variety (I learned later that there were
more than thirty-five varieties of daffodils in the vast display)
was planted as a group so that it swirled and flowed like its own
river with its own unique hue.
the center of this incredible and dazzling display of gold, a great
cascade of purple grape hyacinth flowed down like a waterfall of
blossoms framed in its own rock-lined basin, weaving through the
brilliant daffodils. A charming path wound throughout the garden.
There were several resting stations, paved with stone and furnished
with Victorian wooden benches and great tubs of coral and carmine
tulips. As though this were not magnificence enough, Mother Nature
had to add her own grace note above the daffodils, a bevy
of western bluebirds flitted and darted, flashing their brilliance.
These charming little birds are the color of sapphires with breasts
of magenta red. As they dance in the air, their colors are truly
like jewels above the blowing, glowing daffodils. The effect was
did not matter that the sun was not shining. The brilliance of the
daffodils was like the glow of the brightest sunlit day. Words,
wonderful as they are, simply cannot describe the incredible beauty
of that flower-bedecked mountain top. Five acres of flowers! (This
too I discovered later when some of my questions were answered.)
"But who has done this?" I asked Carolyn. I was
overflowing with gratitude that she brought me even against
my will. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. "Who?"
I asked again, almost speechless with wonder, "And how,
and why, and when?"
just one woman," Carolyn answered. "She lives on
the property. That's her home." Carolyn pointed to a well-kept
A-frame house that looked small and modest in the midst of all that
walked up to the house, my mind buzzing with questions. On the patio
we saw a poster. "Answers to the Questions I Know You Are
Asking" was the headline. The first answer was a simple
one. "50,000 bulbs," it read. The second answer
was, "One at a time, by one woman, two hands, two feet,
and very little brain." The third answer was, "Began
in 1958." There
it was. The Daffodil Principle. For me that moment was a life-changing
experience. I thought of this woman whom I had never met, who, more
than thirty-five years before, had begun one bulb at a time
to bring her vision of beauty and joy to an obscure mountain
top. One bulb at a time. There was no other way to do it. One bulb
at a time. No shortcuts simply loving the slow process of
planting. Loving the work as it unfolded. Loving an achievement
that grew so slowly and that bloomed for only three weeks of each
year. Still, just planting one bulb at a time, year after year,
had changed the world. This unknown woman had forever changed the
world in which she lived. She had created something of ineffable
magnificence, beauty, and inspiration. The principle her daffodil
garden taught is one of the greatest principle of celebration: learning
to move toward our goals and desires one step at a time often
just one baby-step at a time learning to love the doing,
learning to use the accumulation of time. When we multiply tiny
pieces of time with small increments of daily effort, we too will
find we can accomplish magnificent things. We can change the world.
I said that morning on the top of the mountain as we left the haven
of daffodils, our minds and hearts still bathed and bemused by the
splendors we had seen, "it's as though that remarkable woman
has needle-pointed the earth! Decorated it. Just think of it, she
planted every single bulb for more than thirty years. One bulb at
a time! And that's the only way this garden could be created. Every
individual bulb had to be planted. There was no way of short-circuiting
that process. Five acres of blooms. That magnificent cascade of
hyacinth! All, all, just one bulb at a time." The
thought of it filled my mind. I was suddenly overwhelmed with the
implications of what I had seen. "It makes me sad in a way,"
I admitted to Carolyn. "What might I have accomplished if
I had thought of a wonderful goal thirty-five years ago and had
worked away at it 'one bulb at a time' through all those years.
Just think what I might have been able to achieve!"
wise daughter put the car into gear and summed up the message of
the day in her direct way. "Start tomorrow," she
said with the same knowing smile she had worn for most of the morning.
Oh, profound wisdom! It is pointless to think of the lost hours
of yesterdays. The way to make learning a lesson a celebration instead
of a cause for regret is to only ask, "How can I put this
to use tomorrow?"

Yes You Can!
1988, I was 25 years old and laying in the hospital for
alcoholism, drug addiction and severe depression. I thought
there was no hope and wished I would die in my sleep.
hospital took me to a recovery support group meeting that
utilized a 12 Step Program. I saw "Higher Power"
was mentioned in the second step and I was terrified. Being
raised in a strict religious household I had been taught
to fear God. I do not blame the church for my distorted
perceptions because it did teach God does forgives us ...
but somehow in my warped dysfunctional mind I never "heard"
that concept. As a result, I believed in a "Higher
Power" that was vengeful, unloving and punishing. I
believed that there was no hope for me that I was a bad
person and God hated me.
I saw "Higher Power" was involved with recovery,
I immediately knew the program would never work for me.
The problem was I had no where else to go. I had hit a bottom
in my alcoholism and drug addiction. I was emotionally dead
and physically I was damaged forever. Recovery in a 12 Step
Program was my last desperate grasp at finding a life worth
probably would have stood on my hands and walked through
broken glass if that would have stopped me from craving
and obsessing over alcohol and drugs. When it came down
to my choices, it was death or the program. So I decided
to try the program suggested.
desperately listening, I learned that a person does not
have to believe in God to be a part of the 12 Step Program.
Alcoholics seeking recovery who have no understanding of
a God can simply find something greater than themselves
to believe in. Often, using the recovery group is a simple
way for a person struggling with the God concept to find
Most have to admit that a group of recovering alcoholics
has more power together than one lone alcoholic floundering
through life. This very basic concept of a Higher Power
often leads the recovering alcoholic to expanding their
vision and belief in a much greater "Higher Power "...
whatever that may be.
recovery, it does not matter what a person calls their "Higher
Power". It can be God, The Universe, Buddha, Mother
Nature or whatever name you desire. What matters is
how the person perceives their "Higher Power"
and the belief and faith that their "Higher Power"
will keep them sober.
I believe anyone can find a "Higher Power" to
rely on if they just reach out, take action, listen and
be open to learning. Even if someone has faith in nothing
their perceptions of believing can
and usually do change. They eventually find their own personal
experienced this process first hand. Over time by listening
at my recovery support group, my concept of my "Higher
Power" changed to be loving, kind and forgiving and
it completely filled my soul. I began to rely on the Power
more and more and the black pit of desperation in my gut
began to fill with love, kindness and hope.
in the Steps, I learned meditation was an essential aspect
to recovery as well. At first it was difficult to let my
mind go blank. My thoughts raced around in my head and it
was difficult to keep them silent for even a minute. I was
told to keep practicing and meditating would become a valuable
asset in getting to know myself and my "Higher Power."
Eventually it did.
meditating is part of my daily routine and taking the time
to sit and relax my mind is inspiring and energizing. I
have heard it said, "Praying is talking to your
Higher Power and meditating is listening."
back at the person I was and who I have become is like looking
back on someone else's life. I am not the same person emotionally,
physically or spiritually. I believe I am one of the millions
of miracles of 12 Step Recovery Groups because my new Higher
Power has guided me on my new journey in sobriety.
It may have taken near death with alcoholism and drug addiction
to find my "Higher Power" but out of my desperation
has come a glorious new relationship with a Power of my
own personal understanding. I don't expect miracles today
I depend on them.

DEL MAR, CHILE
Guinness Records' World's Largest Swimming Pool San Alfonso del
you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want
to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this
one. It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres,
has a 115 ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water.
Chile's amazing pool uses a computer-controlled suction
and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent
circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and
pumping it out at the other. San
Alfonso del Mar Resort in Algarrobo is located on the
coast of the Pacific Ocean, about 90km from the Chilean
capital of Santiago. The fun here is not dependent on the
weather, as the resort also has the only indoor beach in
South America. This beach features heated sand, waterfalls,
jet massages and bubble beds. Named by Guinness World Records
as the worlds largest swimming pool, it is navigable
at its deep end in small boats. The revolutionary clear
water artificial lagoons, transparent to a depth of 35 metres
and unprecedented in design and construction methods, are
the brainchild of Crystal Lagoons founder, biochemist and
Chilean businessman Fernando Fischmann.
motivating factor to design such an immense pool was the
Pacific Ocean itself. Pacific Ocean water along the Chilean
coast is cold, unclean and dangerous, so Fischmann wanted
to create a place for people to swim and enjoy water sports
in a comfortable and safe environment, and he wanted something
totally extraordinary. The sun warms the pool water to 48.2°F/9°c
warmer than the adjoining sea. It took years for Fischmann
to realize his dream. It was only in 2006 that he found
the technology, called Pulse Oxidation, to maintain
the water quality and clarity at a low cost. Fischmann,
Lagoons Corporation designed the pool, said,
"As long as we have access to unlimited seawater,
we can make it work, and it causes no damage to the ocean."
As such, many environmentalists are pleased with the results
of this pool, which provides people with a form of entertainment
without wreaking havoc on the earth.
In 1845 the little town of Algarrobo
sprang up as a port of cabotage (coastwise trade
of a nation to vessels flying its national flag). Dating
from that time is the neighborhood El Pueblo,
including La Casa Roja and a public school that is
currently the House of Culture. Algarrobo was established
as a resort after 1873, when an ad was published in a Santiago
newspaper offering summer houses for rent. It was further
developed in the 1920s with the arrival of the railroad
to Cartagena and paving of the route to Santiago. The engineer
Carlos Alessandri Altamirano designed the town with its
ample avenues, squares and public facilities. During the
summer nights many presentations of chamber theater are
organized in the House of Culture (Casa de la Cultura).
With a protected bay and white sand beaches, this is an
excellent destination for sea kayaking. You can also go
horseback riding, hike to a waterfall or even see some penguins.
penguins live along the arid desert Pacific coast
of South America, from Isla Foca off the coast of Peru to
Algarrobo in Chile, with a few isolated colonies on the
Punihuil Islands. From the dock of Algarrobo motorboats

SWIMMING TIGER, CHEERING FANS
Odin with his British trainer Lee Munro.
a lump of meat is thrown into the water, Odin happily dives
in after it at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
FRANCISCO A breath-holding, water-frolicking white
Bengal tiger at a California wildlife park is causing a sensation
that surprises even its trainers. "Meat motivation,"
Nancy Chan, spokeswoman for Six
Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, just north
of San Francisco said. "That is what gets Odin into
that tank." The tiger does not mind testing his lungs
for a few chunks of raw horsemeat, but he has been known to
lift his tail and spray the sunburned camera wielders when
they crowd his island. The strapping ten-foot-long, 445-pound
cat is named for the chief god of Norse mythology, and park
goers gulp down red slushy beverages while braving the 100-degree
Fahrenheit heat for a glimpse of his antics. Where
wild tigers once numbered close to 100,000, their numbers
have dwindled to less than 5,000. Some scientists, said Chris
Drelick, a new trainer at the park, believe that wild tigers
could be extinct in a decade due to habitat loss and rampant
poaching."Someday parks like Six Flags may be the
only places to see animals like these," said Drelick.
The last known wild white tiger, the result of a combination
of recessive genes, was shot in 1958. Trainers regularly leash
the tigers and stroll them around the grounds. The claw marks
on some trees indicate the cats' preferred scratching posts.
year old Odin
prowls his domain to the strains of music fit for a Hollywood
version of a Roman battle scene, while Lee Munro, the park's
head trainer and "chief explorer" offers the tiger
sips of low fat milk from a blue baby bottle. Munro raised
the cat since he was two weeks old, and though slight in stature,
has built a bond with Odin based on mutual trust. Munro said
tigers are the most powerful swimmers out of all land-dwelling
animals. They're an ambush predator so they wait for prey
to come down to the water. "Odin loves the water and
he loves food," he said. "Not all big cats
will dive and swim underwater even for meat treats."Munro
hurls hunks of meat the size of softballs into a glass walled
pool, and Odin pounces into the water, diving for treats with
a strange expression that could be taken for excitement, while
the crowd shrieks with joy. "He's actually closing
his nostrils and folding back his ears to keep the water from
going inside," said Munro.
trainer left behind a job as a fraud investigator 13 years
ago to follow a dream of working with animals. These days
he rides an Asian elephant named Taj around the park, and
juggles duties between the cat and the dolphin shows. He also
raised Odin's brother who can be seen slurping up underwater
horsemeat treats in a similar show in a Six Flags park in
New Jersey. There is a tiger splash lineage in Vallejo. Odin
learned his diving from a now 'retired' tiger named Kuma,
and has since passed the trick on to a much younger cub named
Fedor. Fedor, though, still lacks Odin's underwater grace.
how Odin was when he first started out," said Munro,
still sopping wet from the tank. "He was klutzy, his
butt was bobbing around in the air, and his tail hanging out,
but now look at him. When you actually see him dive underwater
he looks so graceful." DSC.DiscoveryChannel.com
