Episode 172 – Holiday Greetings, 2011

Right after I recorded this, I heard a linguist talking about how often we forget the source of the words we use every day. One of the  examples given was creature which comes from the same root as create and creator. Not only do we rank as creatures among other creatures relative to the animals in the world around us, we also function as creators deliberately or inadvertently changing each other as we each strive to achieve balance. An awareness of the power of those interspecies connections is yet another miracle worth contemplating and celebrating this  holiday season.
