BE the World
You Want to See!

Change has long been a fearful thing for human beings ... and at the same time, it is our most Divine opportunity. Clinging to the banks of the river may seem safe and more secure, but life's possibilities are truly engaged only when we trust, release and become part of The Flow of the Universe.

From the Inside OutSurf City

Please excuse me if I'm a little pensive today.

Mark is leaving, and I'm feeling kind of sad.

You probably don't know Mark, but you might be lucky enough to know someone just like him.

He's been the heart and soul of the office for a couple of years, combining exemplary professional skills with a sweet nature and gentle disposition. He's never been all that interested in getting credit for the terrific work he does. He just wants to do his job, and to do it superbly well.

And now he's moving on to an exciting new professional opportunity. It sounds like it could be the chance of a lifetime, and we're genuinely, sincerely pleased for him. But that doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye to a dear friend and trusted colleague.

Life has a way of throwing these curve balls at us. Just when we start to get comfortable with a person, a place or a situation, something comes along to alter the recipe. A terrific neighbor moves away. Someone in the family graduates. A child finds new love and loyalties through marriage. The family's principle bread-winner is laid off.

Our ability to cope with change and disruption determines, to a great degree, our peace, happiness and contentment in life.

But how do we do that? Philosophers have considered the question for centuries, and their responses have been varied. According to the author of the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes, comfort can be found in remembering that "to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." Kahlil Gibran urged his listeners to "let today embrace the past with remembrance, and the future with longing."

A friend of mine who works for the government is fond of reminding his fellow bureaucrats that "survivability depends upon adaptability." And then there's Chris, the California surf-rat, who once told me that the answer to life's problems can be summed up in four words: "Go with the flow."

"It's like surfing," Chris explained. "You can't organize the ocean. Waves just happen. You ride 'em where they take you, then you paddle back out there and catch the next one.

"Sure, you're always hoping for the perfect wave where you can get, like, you know, totally tubular. But mostly you just take 'em the way they come. It's not like you're trying to nail Jell-O to a tree, you know?"

I'm not exactly sure, but I think Chris was saying that life is a series of events — both good and bad. No matter how deft your organizational skills, there will always be life-influencing factors over which you have no control. The truly successful person expects the unexpected, and is prepared to make adjustments should the need arise — as it almost always does.

That doesn't mean you don't keep trying to make all your dreams come true. It just means that when things come up that aren't exactly in your plan, you work around them — and then you move on.

Of course, some bumps along the road of life are easier to take than others. A rained-out picnic, for example, is easier to cope with than the sudden death of a loved one. But the principle is the same.

"Change, indeed, is painful, yet ever needful," said philosopher Thomas Carlyle. "And if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope."

We're going to miss Mark, just like you'll miss that graduate, that neighbor or that newlywed. But rather than dwell on the sadness of our parting, we'll focus on our hopes for a brighter future — for him, and for us. And then we'll go out and do everything we can to make that future happen.

Until our plans change ... again.

Columnist Joseph Walker's collection of vignettes is sure to refresh, reawaken, and engage one's spiritual side.

A delightful book to learn from and cherish, whether one reads and reflects upon a few messages at a time or all at once.

National Volunteer Week April 27 - May 3, 2008 has been celebrated every year since 1974 and is now sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation. This week honors and recognizes individuals who have made a difference in our communities and alerts others to the need for more voluntary service to help solve our nation's serious social problems. Several other countries now have National Volunteer Week celebrations. For general information, see the official annual information at these sites: Canada ... England ... Scotland ... Wales ... Northern Ireland ... Australia.

Since this year's theme is Volunteer to Change the World, the following article will help you take a meaningful holiday that can change the world one step at a time. The book "Volunteer Vacations: Short-Term Adventures That Will Benefit You and Others" by Bill McMillan was written for the increasing number of people looking for ways to make a difference while on vacation, this fully updated edition is filled with in-depth information, including contacts, locations, costs, dates, more project details, and profiles of 150 select organizations running thousands of programs in the United States and around the world. Including new details about long-term projects and organizations specifically tailored for seniors and the disabled, this definitive sourcebook provides a wealth of opportunities for travelers interested in making a difference and provides new anecdotes about all kinds of jobs and the meaning they brought to volunteers' lives.

Vacations to Do Good

According to the Travel Industry Association of America, more than 55 million Americans have participated in a volunteer vacation, and about 100 million more are considering taking one ...

Old tractor tires and soda bottles weren't the only items stuck in the mud along the banks of the Little Sioux River in Iowa. As Dillon Hicks, 11, stepped from the canoe he shared with his grandfather, Doug, he sunk into the soft muck at water's edge, lost his balance, and tumbled into the river. After thrashing about for a moment, the life-jacket-clad boy managed to climb up the muddy bank and yell to his grandfather, "That must have been 20 feet deep!"

Wading in ankle-deep mud and getting soaked in chilly water were two hazards that Doug and his wife, Denice, and their grandchildren Dillon and Brianne, 13, faced during their week of canoeing and camping. But the trip was more than just family fun — the Hicks were cleaning up trash along one of Iowa's waterways through an annual volunteer program, Project AWARE (A Watershed Awareness River Expedition), hosted by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

Learning Through Doing

The idea of using a vacation to do good is appealing to many families, yet volunteer travel isn't simply an alternative to typical vacations — it's an opportunity to immerse your family in a new culture or part of the country while helping others. Although international volunteer vacations often draw families to exotic locales, opportunities may exist in your own backyard. Whether you volunteer within your state or region for a weekend, or travel to a part of the country you've never visited before, your family is bound to come away with a sense of accomplishment — and wonderful memories.

Selecting the Project — Narrow Down the Choices

Hundreds of volunteer organizations across the country are in need of help. Consider where you'd like to visit, what sort of work you wish to do, and how much money you're willing to spend, then learn as much as you can about the projects you're interested in and how your family can contribute.

If someone in your household is particularly good with his or her hands, sign up to help build houses with Habitat for Humanity in a part of the country that you want to explore. Have a budding archaeologist under your roof? Consider spending a week digging alongside archaeologists and learning about Pueblo culture at Crow Canyon Archeological Center in Colorado.

Some projects, such as Global Volunteers' programs in low-income areas of Mississippi and West Virginia, involve working on community improvement projects and tutoring children. Others, including opportunities with the Sierra Club, Wilderness Volunteers , American Hiking Society and National Park Service Volunteers-In-Parks program, let you roll up your sleeves and help maintain some of the country's most stunning national parks and state land areas.

Care for Community

For Carol North of St. Paul, Minnesota, working side by side with her children to help communities in need is a pivotal part of many vacations. Carol has taken her family on several volunteer trips, including to rural Mexico and the Navajo Nation. "I want them to experience life in a developing community and the best way to do that is by living alongside local people," Carol says. "It's a perspective that they wouldn't get in a hotel or resort community."

Recently, Carol served as a team leader for Global Citizens Network, which sends volunteers to help rural communities around the world. Carol's team was involved in a community-building project with the Quileute Native American tribe in La Push, Washington. Her daughter, Madeline, 16, and her sisters-in-law accompanied her on the trip. While performing tasks such as weeding, mowing, cleaning, and cooking, the volunteers met tribal leaders and elders, children, storytellers, woodcarvers, and fishermen, among others. "Everyone in the town was very welcoming and proud of their heritage. It was inspiring," Madeline says.

Elderhostel Service Programs, a subset of Elderhostel, matches seniors (defined as those 55 or older) with working vacations. Its Web site promises vacationers the chance to "put your time and energy to work for worthy causes," ranging from tutoring schoolchildren in China to building homes in Guatemala to assisting with dolphin research in Belize. Costs vary depending on the trip.

The opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life is an alluring aspect of volunteering. In La Push, Washington, Carol and her family listened as the Quileute people shared their culture and stories with the volunteers. "We were not treated as tourists, but as community members and friends," Carol says.

She recalls the highlight of the trip when Madeline was recognized for her work during a healing and drumming circle that the volunteers attended. The evening included the Quileute tradition of gifting blankets, most of which were given away to community members. At the end of the evening, Frank, the volunteers' primary contact for the week, also gave a blanket to Madeline for her quiet, behind-the-scenes leadership. Madeline recalls that moment fondly, but it's the bigger lessons of the week that will stay with her. "I learned that you can't just go into a village and have an idea about how you want to change it," Madeline says. "You have to join together with the community."

Great Rewards — Learn a Little, Contribute a Lot

Even labor-intensive projects aren't all sweat and hard work. Most service vacations also provide the opportunity to make friends, see spectacular sites, and even learn something new. "Project AWARE wasn't just working, it was fun," says Denice Hicks, whose family helped collect enough trash to fill more than 23 dump trucks during the project.

"After we set up our tents and had our showers each night, we'd have some relaxation time, but we also had different programs." The volunteers had the opportunity to learn about such topics as geology, wild edibles, nature photography, astronomy, and butterfly gardening. "We acquired a stronger belief in the value of protecting our natural resources. Plus, the beauty of the river definitely stays in your mind, and the time we spent with our grandchildren is invaluable," she says.

Make a Difference

In cost, many volunteer vacations are comparable to or more reasonable than traditional leisure travel. As an added perk, parts of your trip may be tax deductible. Some service trips cost little more than the gas money it takes to get to your destination. Once they reached the Little Sioux River, the Hicks' week amounted to about $15 per person each day. To take part in American Hiking Society's one- or two-week vacations, participants pay a fee of $120, or $95 for members, as well as their share of the provided food and personal transportation costs to get to the site. Some trips may be priced as much as a typical vacation, however. Global Volunteers projects in the United States run from $650 to $750, excluding airfare. An Earthwatch Institute project ranges from $995 to $2,595, not including travel expenses.

When selecting a project, be sure to check age restrictions. Many volunteer vacations require participants to be 16 years or older, but all-ages trips are becoming available. Earthwatch, for example, offers archaeology programs for families with young children at places such as the Mammoth Site in South Dakota.

Someday you too might reminisce about that vacation when you picked up enough trash to fill a house. Perhaps the results will be even more tangible. "Some people make life-altering decisions after living in a developing village. Decisions to downsize, change careers, even something as simple as making a conscious decision to waste less water. It can be a profound experience," Carol says. You can visit "Volunteer Vacation" for more ideas.

Mt. Kilamanjaro in Tanzania
Magnificent Mount Kilamanjaro in Africa's Tanzania.

Take a walk on the wild side in this quintessential African landscape. Step out into the vast open plains of Tanzania and you suddenly feel very, very small. And so you should. You've just joined one of the largest, wildest animal populations in the world. Wildebeest, monkey, antelope, lion, cheetah, crocodile, gazelle, flamingo — they're all out there. Despite troubles from rowdy neighbors and a weak economy, Tanzania is one of the most enchanting countries in eastern Africa. Its majestic national parks are a paradise for wildlife lovers and if that's not your thing then you have a wealth of other options — from scaling the slopes of the incredible Mt Kilimanjaro to exploring the seductive island of Zanzibar.

The history of human habitation in Tanzania goes back almost two million years, and the fossils found at Olduvai Gorge by Louis and Mary Leakey now stand among the most important artifacts of the origins of our species. Artifacts of later Paleolithic cultures have also been found in Tanzania. There is evidence that communities along the Tanzanian coast were engaging in overseas trade by the beginning of the first millennium AD. By 900 AD those communities had attracted immigrants from India as well as from southwest Asia, and direct trade extended as far as China. The Omani dynasty of the Bu Said replaced the region's Yarubi leaders in 1741, and they proceeded to further develop trade. In Tanzania's interior, at about the same time, the cattle-grazing Maasai migrated south from Kenya into central Tanzania. Soon afterward the great age of European exploration of the African continent began, and with it came colonial domination. Tanzania fell under German control in 1886, but was handed over to Britain after WWI. Present day Tanzania is the result of a merger between the mainland (previously Tanganyika) and Zanzibar in 1964, after both had gained independence.

Ngorongoro crater heralded as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ is an awe-inspiring caldera; enclosed by sheer walls the crater is breathtaking; this Garden of Eden flourishes with flora and fauna. The Northern Circuit has equally exceptional game sanctuaries such as Tarangire National Park, which during the dry season has teeming herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle passing through in search of water; and patiently the predators follow these grazers. Tarangire also boasts many hundreds of bird species. Lake Manyara National Park you'll find tree-climbing lions sprawled on stout limbs of acacia. Be sure to see the lovely Arusha National Park nestling against Mount Meru; the fascinating and remote soda lakes of Natron and Eyasi; and Olduvai Gorge which is known as the cradle of humankind. Mount Kilimanjaro provides some exotic eye-pleasure with its snowcapped peaks. Kilimanjaro “As far as you can see, as wide as the whole world and unbelievably white as the sun” — this is Kilimanjaro through the eyes of Ernest Hemingway. At 5895m this is Africa’s highest point and the world’s highest mountain. Incredibly, the snowcapped peak is only a few hours away from a tropical coastline. It is fascinating to experience this mountain as it rises majestically above the hazy African plains and to trek to the summit from equatorial Africa to arctic conditions, passing through tropical rain forest, moorland, alpine desert onto snow and ice.

One of the most fascinating islands in Tanzania, is the 'Spice Island' of Zanzibar. Located on the eastern coast of Tanzania, this island has several historical ruins and palaces and is a vital heritage site. Stone Town is a captivating place, built by Arab and Indian merchants in the 19th century from the island’s coral stone. A walk through the disordered twisting alleys, past intricately-carved wooden doors and beneath ornate balconies, and with the lingering scent of spices in the air, takes one back in time. Beyond the town are the scintillating crystal seas and sun bleached white sands. The palm fringed coastline looks out over the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Tranquil coral lagoons shelter underwater coral gardens, boasting some of the best diving in the world. Ancient ruins rest among whispering easuarinas (she-oak) and palms, enticing you to explore further.

Apart from the natural attractions of Tanzania, there are several archeological and historical places too in the country. Some of the vital archeological sites include Laetoli, Palace of Husuni Kubwa, Engaruka and Kalambo Falls. Olduvai Gorge Museum is also a major tourist attraction in Tanzania. The Arusha Cultural Heritage Center and the Mafuta House has also developed as places of attraction in Tanzania.

Gifts From The Child Within:
Self-discovery and Self-recovery Through Re-Creation Therapy (2nd Edition)

This recovery workbook is an incredibly powerful healing tool that helps readers discover how childhood trauma has caused much of the emotional suffering in their lives today. The author Barbara Sinor, PhD, has had extensive professional and personal experience in this area, and uses self-disclosure to present some very powerful examples about her own healing. Sinor states, "Today there are signs that after a long and tumultuous courtship, spirituality and psychology may be finding common ground." Connecting all of these aspects of oneself leads to a holistic healing. She teaches you how to get in touch with your inner child to release negative emotions and recreate childhood beliefs and experiences: "You can learn to live in the present by releasing the retained hurt and not allowing it to direct your life. You can accomplish this by using self-empowerment, by acknowledging your personal power." There are seven key steps to the process: Acknowledgment; Self-Awareness; Meeting Your Child Within; Emotional Release Exercises; The Re-creation Process; For-Giving; and Letting Go. Each step is fully explained and for deeper exploration, at the end of each chapter, are thought-provoking Child Within exercises, affirmations, directions for auto-hypnosis and blank pages for journaling. By using these tools to recreate your past, you will be able to change your present reality and thereby alter your future. Read More HERE

Get some perspective! “Big” and “small” are such subjective terms. For example, you might think that the Earth is large. In reality, it isn’t the largest planet in the galaxy. And there are countless planets and stars outside of our galaxy. Well, Nikon’s Universcale will help you put things in context. You can see how the Earth measures up against other planets. Or you can see how a carbon nanotube compares to a blood cell. You can start at the universal end of the scale, or you can start by exploring the microworld.

Haida the German Shepherd
Haida the German Shepherd took her cart to the beach the very same day it arrived.

Mac the Corgi
11-year-old auburn Welsh Corgi named Max is healthy except for the degenerative myelopathy progressively paralyzing both back legs.

SHELBURNE FALLS, Mass. — When Gary Mikus learned that an incurable nerve disease was starting to paralyze the hind legs of his German shepherd, he immediately dismissed the idea of putting the dog to sleep. Then he spotted an ad in a pet food store: “Eddie’s Wheels For Pets. Help for Handicapped Pets.” Now the dog named Bear, which has been Mikus’ constant companion for a decade, has a lot of living left to do — much of it in his new pet wheelchair. A growing number of pet owners are turning to custom-built wheelchairs to restore mobility to furry friends whose legs, hips or backs don’t work. The owners’ goals are simple: to reward their pets’ unconditional love with whatever it takes for the animals to live normally. The two-wheel carts support the dog’s midsection with a padded saddle, and are secured with a shoulder yoke and chest strap. Most dogs have rear-wheel carts to compensate for lame hind legs, though a growing number of front-wheel carts are being ordered for animals with front-leg problems. Donna Blain’s 7-year-old Maltese named Gizmo (See Video) hopped and hobbled on his deformed front legs before she adopted him a year ago. She ordered his cart after learning the odd gait had damaged his spine and would have required surgery. Now he wheels himself around for hours on sidewalks, in parks and anywhere he can find treats and praise.

Eddie and Leslie Grinnell, founders of Eddie’s Wheels, built their first pet wheelchair in 1989 when their 10-year-old Doberman, Buddha, lost the use of her rear legs because of disc disease and spinal problems. Their veterinarian, impressed by Buddha’s revived mobility and vitality, started referring others to the Grinnells. In 1998, they started their own business. Since launching the business, Eddie’s Wheels has shipped carts worldwide — the largest to a 220-pound Saint Bernard in Great Britain — and has made wheelchairs for several cats (See Boots' Video), a ferret, alpacas, goats, sheep, a rabbit and a possum. Eddie built his first quad cart for an 80 lb. Basset Hound named Jake, who was quadriplegic following an unsuccessful operation on his neck. Smaller dogs can lay down in the carts using a pillow to make it extra comfortable. Many of the dogs who need the chairs become disabled from degenerative myelopathy, a neurological disease common in German shepherds, golden retrievers, Labradors and other large sporting breeds. Others, like Corgis and Dachshunds, are vulnerable to disc and spine problems that eventually leave them lame. “Dogs don’t understand why this is going on, but they’re very accepting: ’Oh, this is the way I am today.’ So when we put them in the cart, they’re like: ’Oh, now I’m back to normal. I can go where I want,” Leslie Grinnell said. That was the case with Max, an 8-year-old German shepherd whose owners, Gordon and Linda Landry of Granby, said his degenerative myelopathy left him dejected and hobbling behind their other dog, Molly. As he tried his new cart for the first time, the dog whimpered at the door to go outside and promptly wheeled his way down the walkway, around the parking lot and past Molly as she peered at him from the Landrys’ truck. “This just amazes me,” Linda Landry said as she watched him, laughing at his vigor. “We never get to see him like this anymore. It’s like having a younger Max back.” Visit the website at:
