Earth Day 2012


HAPPY EARTH DAY!



The tree which moves some to tears of joy
is in the Eyes of others only a Green thing
that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity,
and by these I shall not regulate my proportions;
and some scarce see Nature at all.

But to the eyes of the man of Imagination,
Nature is Imagination itself.

~William Blake

recent walk in Ojai ...






And peaking out from someone's yard ... a not so subtile reminder of what will happen to us if we don't take care of our beautiful home ...



Because the landscape has always been an integral part of my life,
I have developed a deep sense of belonging to nature
rather than feel apart from it or above it.

~Clyde Aspevig


Blessings and light to you all!

Let's carry Earth Day throughout the year
and take care of this beautiful planet,
that we are so blessed to live on!

I don't know! Does it have to do with how much time they're in the water? Or is that the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? Hmmm.
