We feel it’s grace even when we cannot see Her…

our Sun…

She gives us Life each and every day…

without the Source of Her power, none of us would be here…

Unconditionally, an energy is supplied to this planet with a Love from the Universe…

yet…

we sometimes walk our paths without acknowledgement…

I, for one have done this in the past…although efforts have been made…

A stronger commitment from the Global Culture is required…

no politics here…

so much of that will just confuse Us…

the reality of what we take is finite…that which is taken will end some day…

We exist in a moment in Time when we can accept what the Universe is lovingly giving Us…

we know how to make it happen…

there exists those of Us who know how…

take the blinders off and see them…they will help us who do not know how…

Upon the Indigo Sea, a green path lay…

going green is something which can be done both in the physical as well as the spiritual…

riding my bike over to Masonboro instead of driving my truck saves a little bit of Nature’s production…

the ride also quiets the mind…

The Sun’s power is a solution to our planet’s energy problems…

and yes…the planet’s energy problems are real…we see the affects everyday in many ways…time to change that course.

Cape Fear Solar Systemsof Wilmington, North Carolina supplied my little She, the sailing vessel Cuddy, with an unlimited source of power by installing a solar panel on a stainless steel rack artistically crafted by Jeff Bridgers.  While at sea, I did not have to run my diesel engine to power my electrical systems, the sun’s grace did that for me through the solar panel, I ran the diesel a few times to fight a storm, motor into port and move during light wind days (although, I could have just drifted for a while).  While anchored up in Bermuda, I never needed to start up the diesel at all…each day, the sun’s grace gave me energy to live upon my little She unconditionally.  The sun gave me the electrical power I have become accustomed to living in the culture I grew up within.  While other cruisers would have to start their engines each day to recharge their batteries, a few of us who had wind and/or solar panels would go about our days and nights in a quiet way.  And yeah, the quietness of an engine not running is a beautiful thing. 

One of the most beautiful moments of sailing is turning the engine off once the sails are set…

the only noise is of the wind in my ears and the water lapping on the hull of my little She…

the next time I am out there and the wind ceases to blow…

perhaps just drift on the moment…enjoy the silence…the calm…and go for a swim in the Indigo Sea.

We can do something similar in our dwellings…our places of business…everywhere…we just need to make the effort.  I have worked on projects in the past as an Architect both in North Carolina and California.  Entire unseen, flat roofs of commercial buildings can be covered with photovoltaic panels to supply all the energy they need…that technology exists and has for many years.  Yes, upfront costs are high sometimes, but think of the long term…beyond today, tomorrow and the days after…
