The boys and I watched Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? after home-school and though I've watched it three times already, this documentary hits home every time. By enlightening the catastrophe we are hurtling ourselves towards and illuminating the heart-wrenching struggles of our beekeepers, it stirs up a sense of great urgency. Then it uplifts and empowers when solutions are revealed: renewing the balance in nature and returning to our roots. 

In my free time, I do a lot of reading and research, learning about the murdering, raping, pillaging and plundering that we have done to Mother Earth with industrialization (the reliance on chemical solutions to man-made problems). But it is not hope-less. We are pulling ourselves out of the dark, knocking the residue out of our minds, tuning in and realizing that there is a real crisis and there are real solutions to be lived. We are all small threads making up this magnificent web - our web is on the verge of collapsing, unless we take action: ground yourself, go to the source and throw those seed bombs. Marla Spivak illustrates this beautifully:

It's time to heal, nurture and reconnect ourselves, each other and nature.
It's time to collaborate our vast human potential to manifest, create and live the solution.
It’s time to grow forward together into a more harmonious and wholesome way of being.
It’s time to be human beings again.
It’s time.
