“ HEARTWORK Each day is born with a sunrise and ends in a sunset, the same way we open our eyes to see the light, and close them to hear the dark. You have no control over how your story begins or ends. But by now, you should know that all things have an ending. Every spark returns to darkness. Every sound returns to silence. And every flower returns to sleep with the earth. The journey of the sun and moon is predictable. But yours, is your ultimate ART. ”

[close] This group is for Druids who seek the modern knowledge of which the Ancients dreamed in order to better understand this world. We are not here for spiritual reading or Otherworld. We are here for botany, ecology, zoology, astronomy, geology, physics, history (which may include folklore), and any other studies on which Druids of old may have spent their time.

[close] Welcome to Birds! Eclectus Parrots (Eclectus roratus) For all bird lovers—wrap yourself in the realm of birds and share your experiences while birding! We will read books about and relating to birds, giving us a broader and newer understanding of them at the same time as we discuss species and take in birding tips. At first, birding may seem like a wasted pastime, but if looked at in the right way, reveals an outstanding world that you never thought existed. I hope to explore this world with you and learn from you in a community where we are all into ornithology, so don't hesitate, meander into the realm of feathered creatures that surround us.
