In an ironic twist on an otherwise mild winter in Toronto, the month of April has been our snowiest month…and we’re only half way through the month. That said, it was gorgeous on Thursday, so I took advantage and wandered down to the boardwalk with my camera.
Birds seemed to be my primary focus on Sunday while I wandered the boardwalk in the east end of Toronto.
Today, it is the grand compilation of everybody else.

I took my camera with me when I attended the Nashville Film Festival and wandered the grassy lanes of nearby Vanderbilt University.
These are some of the plants and animals I found on campus.
As human beings, we tend to make a lot of noise about sentience. The challenge I find, at the deepest level, with this is that we seem to equate feeling with awareness in its broadest sense.
To me, feeling focuses inward, toward me, whereas awareness focuses outward, on what is out there. Thus, I’m more interested in soul. Not in the religious sense of who goes to heaven, but in the sense of unity with the greater universe.
One look into the eyes of animals tells you, humans are not the only ones with souls. What do you think?
