In The World But Not Of It

Salmon Run TSS

It’s magnificent to see a salmon run. A sacred journey when they return to where they were born to spawn a new generation. Salmon is a keystone species.

Keystone species are those who have an extremely high impact on a particular ecosystem relative to its population. Keystone species are also critical for the overall structure and function of an ecosystem, and influence which other types of plants and animals make up that ecosystem. Thus, in the absence of a keystone species, many ecosystems would fail to exist. ~ Biology Dictionary

This box is a  masterpiece carved by an Aboriginal artist, an award Distinguished Service Award presented to Thelma Siglos for her remarkable commitment and dedication to the accounting profession and her community from the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC)

Salmon Run

“The philanthropic work of volunteers like Thelma brings a positive impact on communities and the lives of others. She is truly deserving of this award.” Her profile is published at BCCPA.CA.

It’s surprising to be nominated and given the prestige without knowing that there are people in the community that values your contribution just by doing what you love to do and not get anything in return.

When I heard this, I was shocked with disbelief.  Then with gratitude. I said to Thelma: “Hey, sis, God gave you a sound mind, and you have used it well. Well done! Mother is looking down at you beaming with love, joy and happiness. So am I.”
