The Nest in the Stream

In the summer of 2009, while wandering in the foothills of Santa Barbara, California, I came across an extraordinary sight: a large bird’s nest in a stream.  This has become a profound and ongoing teaching for me and was the inspiration for my writing a book of the same title.  Here is a short movie clip I took at the time:
