Earth Day 2009

Today is Earth Day and it is a day to celebrate and help our beautiful planet. I love that there is a day when we can all think about what we can do to make our planet a cleaner and greener place. The beauty of this day though is that the awareness doesn’t have to stop tonight when the clock strikes midnight. We can all do our part every day of the year. Please check out this Earth Day site. This and other sites are great resources to find out how we can all do more. I’m learning myself because I just want to do what I can to help along the future of our planet. I don’t have kids, but I have many nieces and nephews, and for them and other children, I want to leave a green mark on the world when I go. (smile) I know that this is all a complex issue, but a lot of times I just cut away all of that and think of it simply. I look outside and see scenes like these and I realize how blessed we all are that we were born here.




The first two photos are from here in England and the last one is from back home in Georgia...two homes to me, but they are all on the same planet that I love. (smile) I’m not here to preach or anything like that, because I’m still learning myself, but as you go about your day, spare a thought for our planet Earth. (smile) Happy Earth Day everybody!

Beautiful photos! I love the place we call our home, Earth! My goal is to call a recycling company today to see if they could begin coming to my house. I try to recycle but this effort is to help me be more consistent with it. Thanks for the reminder of Earth Day! I love it..

Those photos are sooo amazing. I'm always in awe and deeply enchanted by the wonderment of nature. Whether it's the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Painted Desert or just a tiny wild flower, I have found myself stopping to honor the grand presence of it all. Just beautiful! :-)
