Earth Day 2010.
Amid crisis and grief, the healing power of the natural world refreshes my soul and cheers my heart. No gathering of humans or words on a page can compare to a magical moment watching caterpillars eat every leaf off of a milkweed plant. But don’t worry. The plant returns to be eaten again and again and again.
Mother Earth takes care of her own, including you and me. I am reminded of this every morning I wake to a sun-kissed swath of green punctuated with red Tropical Sage, flying Zebra Butterflies and purply-blue Phillipine violets.
Why is it so hard for people to understand that our habits may be harmful to the air, the water and the soil? I doubt Mother Earth will be destroyed, but humanity? I hope not.
And so, a passionate Happy Earth Day to us, and many, many more.
