This week we became aware of our fish dying in one of our ponds. Was it the heat? Was it pesticides? Was it a foreign creature? Regardless of what caused it, we are saddened by this development. We are experiencing – on a very a small scale – some of what people in third world cultures experience: a dying of a natural source of beauty and nourishment.
This event can also help us unite in spirit with all the suffering people who have no electrical power due to storms, no running water, no air conditioning, no refrigeration. Going without something we take for granted helps us see how much we truly have. Let us be grateful for both the blessings and the lessons.
We have contacted the local conservation office. We do not want to jeopardize the health of our eco-system or any animal that happens to encounter the situation. We hope for a good outcome and will let you know the answer.
