HONEYLOVER OF THE MONTH: Ed
BEES RESCUED FROM: A tree in Palos Verdes (cut-out) 

ED: I love beekeeping because when I’m handling bees, I have nothing else in mind except for that moment in which I’m directly interacting with one of nature’s most wonderful manifestations. Here is a stanza one of my fave poems:

Last night, as I was sleeping,
I dreamt — marvelous error!—
that I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures

- Antonio Machado

ROB (HoneyLove): “Ed has become a local hero after spearheading the legalization of urban beekeeping in Redondo Beach this month. We are honored to feature Ed as HoneyLover of the month!” Click here to read more!

The Implications by Rick Bursky 
Published in “The Gettysburg Review” Summer 2012 
 

“The man at the entrance to the alley was not stung.
The three eyes of a bee see the world their own way.”


[Bees have three simple eyes, and two compound eyes. This allows bees to detect polarized light — something human beings cannot do. –

How doth the little busy bee 
Improve each shining hour 
And gather honey all the day 
From every opening flower!
