What a wonderful thought: Green Renaissance.
I believe that this is happening all over Grandmother Earth, and in Mother Nature.
I discovered these YouTube videos by that name this week. They are so exceptional I wanted to share them with you. Each is filmed on location in either New Zealand; South Africa; the Faroe Islands; St. Helena, Scotland; or Eigg (an Island off the coast of Scotland).
I had never heard of the Faroe Islands. They are a group of islands in the North Atlantic between Denmark and Iceland. They are part of the Commonwealth of Denmark. What a surprising and delightful discovery.
Each video is only five or nine minutes, and shows a slice of life of unique individuals living in these areas. The filmmakers (I definitely call these films) give an artistic look and give brief biographies of people living in these remote lands.
What a treat. I wanted to share these with you for Thanksgiving.
Each mini film is a celebration of life, which includes Mother Nature, with People who love her and have made a conscious decision to live with her in Love with her animals, plants, trees and elements.
In the video above, “Soul Animals,” I am transported to a time when I had my first horse, H.R., High Regard. He definitely was my soul animal with all that phrase could entail. My spirit animal. No words really could describe the feelings of complete contentment, along with wonder, that he gave me.
A special day with him came when I received a rare visit from my Mom. We had a fun day out in Carmel. It was drawing toward dusk and I said, “Would you like to go and hear H.R. eat?” I loved the expression on her face, and then she realized I was serious. We could drive right up to the fence near where he was eating. I had her open her window so she could hear him eat. “Don’t you just love this, Mom?” I felt she didn’t quite “get it,” but was willing to let me have the joy and complete contentment it gave me. I’m sure she did receive the beauty of H.R., and the setting of his corral in the Carmel Hills, with the sweet fragrance of hay. A moment in time so sweet that I can remember every detail: Love.
I read once that a pasture is so much more beautiful with a horse in it. If you are lucky enough to have a horse, dog, cat or pet in your life, you are lucky enough.

In a world where humans have become “so divorced from the soil and animals,” where they have become so enamored with appearances and the power to manipulate them, what is real? This is a wonderful question to pose. I grew up in Carmel Valley with horses, lambs, dogs, cats, seven brothers and sisters. I trusted the authentic connection and unconditional acceptance animals provided when others fell short. Lovely post, Nina!
