There is an ancient
superstition of the sea that; inevitably,
one wave comes along that is greater than
any that has preceded it. It is called
the Ninth Wave. It is the powerful
culmination of sea and wind. There is no
greater force. To catch the Ninth Wave at
the critical moment requires a special
skill, timing your movements to mount it
at its peak.
Today we see such a
powerful wave in our future. Our own
Ninth Wave, bringing with it significant
change. To catch this Wave, this change,
we must prepare now. So that when it is
our turn to respond, we can catch the
mighty Ninth with the best that is in us
and ride it all the way to the shore.
We hope you will
continue to watch us grow. We appreciate
the responses we have gotten about our
work and the information we provide.
Thank you for your participation.
Man is a creature
of the seasons.....in his leisure habits,
in his clothing, his shelter, his
occupations. The farmers year is
governed by the season, because the
products of nature are governed by the
seasons. Even in an age where we build
domed, heated, air conditioned structures
to defy normal seasonal climate, there is
a seasonal cycle. We follow it with the
school year, or the crop cycle. But if
nature has created the climate and the
natural conditions that identify each
season, man has provided artificial
characteristics. Christmas in the
Northern hemisphere is a winter holiday,
Easter a spring one. Thanksgiving is an
autumn highlight in the United States.
January is the time of department store
white sales, September or thereabouts the
time for the new model cars.....and so
forth. For every single thing, there is a
season. HAPPY SPRING!!
