- 21/09/2017This beautiful creature was on my porch this morning! There are at least two in my 'hood. I've had a fledgling pigeon on my porch who I've been grudgingly watching after until he could fly away. I guess this was impetus enough, as the freeloader is gone and with no corpse around, I'm quite sure he's okay. Loved seeing guy up close though!

- 04/08/2017Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge.
We are perpetually on the way thither,
being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
Comments05/08/2017 #9 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe actual context of this quote is better understood in its full text as copied below from On the Genealogy of Morals by Nietzsche :
We are unknown to ourselves, we men of knowledge—and with good reason. We have never sought ourselves—how could it happen that we should ever find ourselves? It has rightly been said: "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" [Matthew 6:21]; our treasure is where the beehives of our knowledge are. We are constantly making for them, being by nature winged creatures and honey-gatherers of the spirit; there is one thing alone we really care about from the heart—"bringing something home." Whatever else there is in life, so-called "experiences"—which of us has sufficient earnestness for them? Or sufficient time? Present experience has, I am afraid, always found us "absent-minded": we cannot give our hearts to it—not even our ears! Rather, as one divinely preoccupied and immersed in himself into whose ear the bell has just boomed with all its strength the twelve beats of noon suddenly starts up and asks himself: "what really was that which just struck?" so we sometimes rub our ears afterward and ask, utterly surprised and disconcerted, "what really was that which we have just experienced?" and moreover: "who are we really?" and, afterward as aforesaid, count the twelve trembling bell-strokes of our experience, our life, our being—and alas! miscount them.—So we are necessarily strangers to ourselves, we do not comprehend ourselves, we have to misunderstand ourselves, for us the law "Each is furthest from himself" applies to all eternity—we are not "men of knowledge" with respect to ourselves.

Comments04/08/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#7 Thanks @David 🐝 Martín Alonso, glad you enjoyed it! The ocean is so vast, it amazes me and I never tire from being near it. I would take my camera and walk for 2 miles or more before I knew how far I had jotted down the beach. We had a tornado warning one day and I was so caught up in taking photos, I wasn't paying attention to the strong storm coming in from the West and my husband came looking for me lol04/08/2017 #8 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#6 How much fun @Lance 🐝 Scoular, you were definitely a fish in the water! I've never snorkled before.
I grew up with Lake Erie at my backdoor. We spent our entire summer there from my early teen years on (and as kids too). Now, I must say, I was there for the tan too LOL.
I will always be drawn to water, what about you?03/08/2017 #6 Lance 🐝 ScoularVery pleasant snd relaxing Lisa.
I love the water. I grew up in Cammeray on Sydney's North Shore and a water frontage on Middle Harbour.
I rowed, sailed, swam, snorkled from our back yard.
As a teenager I would go surfing on Sydney's Nortern Beaches especialy Manly, Queenscliff, Harbord, Newport and Whale Beches.
Great times.🏄♂️🏊♂️⛵🚣♂️🌞03/08/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#4 Thanks @David B. Grinberg. I agree about the ocean and finding peace/serenity. I swear my worries just disappear when I'm near the Ocean. I will even stay out on my balcony as late as I can to listen to the waves while I read or yea.. get on my PC LOL. We all need to take breaks from Social Media for a day or two each week or I think we go nuts as much as many of us LOVE it.. breaks are still necessary. I can't wait to be in the right place and put together another live buzz. I haven't been anywhere to do that yet this summer. Co. I was too busy to take out my phone except for the last day and I forgot to make a video.03/08/2017 #4 David B. GrinbergNice video, Lisa! I always find the ocean to be so serene and soothing, especially when listening to gentle waves break on the shore. You did a great job capturing the beauty of nature on the coast. We can all probably use more serenity in today's frenetically paced mobile, digital and virtual world where "information overload" is the rule, rather than the exception. Bravo!02/08/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#1 Glad you enjoyed it @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador! I have to admit, this was shot 1.5 years ago. I will be leaving in less than 2 months for the Ocean again and plan to get many photos along with more video. Thanks for sharing :)) I can't wait to have my morning coffee while watching & listening to the ocean again... my favorite spot is on the coast!02/08/2017 #2 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador@David B. Grinberg , see, Lisa stepped outdoor to shoot a videoBuzz, i challenged you to get out of the balcony comfort zone !!!! hahahaha, and yes my buzz is coming...i had so much fun preparing a serie of 32 stunning vBuzz. Some bees are concerned in it and was inspred by @John White, MBA preocupation to attract YouTubers on beBee for their new Home Base Operations (HBO....LOL).02/08/2017 #1 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorNot bad at all ! The shot is steady on a windy beach, i wish i could do the same...those birds remind me of twitters looking for followers for a 10K$ recipe a month , in the water waves. LOL. Refreshing and smile making me for my morning coffee. I will share this piece of happiness and authenticity in LIfeStyle & MybeBeeTV, if i May @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher bceacause good mood & relationship matters! Dare & Share !

My latest photo on www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk
This is a great example of things you see when you don't have your good camera, but are thankful you have your phone with you. This monarch was perfectly poised on the milkweed plant with my friend's pool providing a delightful backdrop.

Comments25/07/2017 #36 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#35 Likewise @Purnima Menon I have missed reading your pieces mainly because I have not been spending much time at LinkedIn. I have set up my learning store here at beBee and it has been a real good experience. I can see Puneet has got the buzz going now and once you get buzzing I think you are really going to like it here.
One thing that has been a slow evolution is my Ashoka's Wheel Hive https://www.bebee.com/group/ashoka which is meant to be a focus on 21st Century India - and only because it is missing cerebral juices that comes into play with a critical mass of 21st Century Indians ! For every one piece that raises a concern about 21st Century India, I want to see 7 pieces that celebrate and explore new aspects of the rise of 21st Century India. It is tempting to write about what is wrong with fast-growing India, but there is a whole lot right about that also, so I am not looking for a balanced perspective here at all, especially when there is way more good stuff than the nasty. There is plenty of people who are focused on the nasty but I want to learn more about what is working and what is going to work. I also want to showcase especially the young guns who are doing amazing work.21/07/2017 #28 Puneet Srivastava#24 So well said @Tausif Mundrawala ... big city, fast life & above all 'the Mumbai madness' sure are challenging... yet thankfully even in such times thoughtful friends like u always remind that there is still a lot of beauty to this life which can be explored, experienced and enjoyed. Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback. Gud day & Enjoy the rain outside. :)20/07/2017 #25 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWe who live in paradise also live in the strange paradox that we don't seek paradise when we live in it, we seek something better, something material or something psychologically urged and that sums up all our efforts and striving, yet freedom is not a particularly difficult thing to achieve and it is insightful when we think the butterfly is more free than we are because then we are not in paradise, for then we are chasing for something that is not a butterfly. Freedom can be this.20/07/2017 #24 Tausif MundrawalaI agree with you on all aspects though me being a nature lover like you. Paying homage to a close one's grave I found many hovering on one flower to another. This graveyard doesn't seem like one in fact it's like a garden waiting to be explored. I have the privilege of working in a natural environment here in Andheri where I enjoy the natural environment to its optimum level. Yes, people would find avenues to earn more but we as human should devote few minutes exploring this beautiful nature. Thanks for tagging me, my friend @Puneet Srivastava20/07/2017 #23 Puneet Srivastava#20 Thank you so much my dear friend @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. Its a blessing being connected with someone like you. :)20/07/2017 #22 Puneet Srivastava#21 That's a great one... so guys... everyone please know... now onwards I am a 'hobby photographer' ... Thank you so much @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher U r just too good. And yes... mangoes... well... let me try do a story on that next... I assure no shoes shall be there. :)20/07/2017 #21 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#14 I call myself a novice too then one day someone used the term hobby photographer and I use that term now. It's one of my favorite hobbies. I heard a lot of traffic in the background, that must be why they are widening the road? Mango tree, yum... love mangos without shoes, that is ;-)20/07/2017 #20 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.#19 oh yes I look forward to enjoying the precious beauty of it thank you @Puneet Srivastava, may you always find bliss and peace.20/07/2017 #19 Puneet Srivastava#4 Thank you @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.
