The 5th law of health is: Temperance or known more today as “moderation”.

“Everything in moderation.” Nothing holds more truth than this ancient phrase which reminds us to calm exaggerative tendencies, to not go to extremes in anything.

Just as nutrition and exercise are vital for true wellness for our companion animals, time out in the sunlight is just as vital. Especially in today’s lifestyle where our companion animals spend the majority of their days cooped up in the house, or in a stall while we are gone at work.

Sunlight consists of many different frequencies of light; each one has its own unique healing power!

I knew there were owls in the holes in the mesa cliffs but I had never had the privilege of seeing one up close before.

Either he or both he and his mate would be roosting in some sagebrush that was high up enough I couldn’t reach them of course, but close enough that I could see them clearly and even stand and just gaze at them. Sometimes I would just stop briefly to say hello in a soft voice and admire their beauty. Why am I sharing this here?
