Last week I talked about water as an image for spirit. The metaphor brought me back to the need to pay attention to water in the way we live.

As I wrote about the way rain seeps into the ground, I thought about what is carried down into the aquifers by rain water. Everything we place on the soil can be picked up and carried into the ground.

At the end of last week you may have found, here on the Hub, an article about my efforts to raise some funds for the Bluewater division of the Canadian Cancer Society.
I am happy to report your success in this endeavour to the extent that you have donated over $400 to the cause.
If you had intended to be part of that but hadn't managed to squeeze that into your understandably busy schedule, there is good news. You can still make that donation by dropping in to The River Café at 986 Main Street (2nd Ave. East) in Owen Sound and leaving your donation there, or by going to The Cancer Society's collection page.
I also want to thank my musical partner, Rebecca Johnson-Morelli for her enthusiastic participation in shaving my head, and for her confirming her further participation in the show we'll be putting on for donors who gave twenty dollars or more.
