July 20th, 9am Dillion Beach: To Honor and Grieve for the Gray Whales
Over 70 gray whales have washed up on the US Pacific shores this year, 13 of them in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most have died of starvation, a few by collision with ships.
My heart is breaking as we witness what may be the beginning of the end of this magnificent species that has shared the earth with us for as long as we have been human. Our world will be a poorer place without them.
My friends, Doug von Koss, Francis and Judith Weller, Elizabeth Herron and others are planning a memorial service and grief ritual for the whales July 20th at Dillon Beach. The ritual will begin at 9am. All are welcome. If you are touched as we are by this tr4agedy, we invite you to join us. In solidarity with all beings, Larry Robinson, Sebastopol.
