Earth Day 2017

 

On Earth Day

Mother Earth prays

hoping we’ll hear her plea 

 

For it is through us alone

we can protect our home

for future generations to see

I’ve recently been enjoying the beautiful artwork of Josephine Wall, and when I came across this piece of hers, I immediately thought of Mother Earth and Earth Day.  It’s entitled “Sadness of Gaia” and if you click on the picture, it will bring you to the artist’s webpage and her interpretation/explanation of this piece.  To me it seems as if Mother Earth is praying.  Let’s listen…

Forget Not

And while you’re letting the earth delight in feeling your bare feet and letting the winds play with your hair, perhaps the trees could do with getting a hug too…

Yep, just doing my part to embrace Earth Day yesterday.  Literally.   😉

 

 As nice as it looks like it was outside in the above photo, it was actually freezing out yesterday!  But I didn’t let that stop me from getting out there and celebrating our beautiful earth, hugging trees n stuff.

  Hope you got a chance to get out there and show the earth some love too.  And going forward, lets “forget not” to do what we can to take care of our amazing planet.  Every day should be Earth Day…

Earth Day

I shared this video last year in Thoughts on Earth Day, and thought I would again.  We sure have a beautiful place to live, and share it with so many amazing and wonderful creatures. ♥

Lets do what we can to try and take better care of it…

Thoughts on Earth Day

I’ve realized a few things about myself over the years…

One of them being that I think I just very well may be a closet environmentalist.  I hate to use labels, but I don’t know how else to describe it.

Because today is Earth Day, I have spent the entire morning reading about Earth Day and watching nature related videos.  Funny thing is… I do this on somewhat of a regular basis ~ nature is something so inspiring to me, and it gives me a deep sense of awareness of things on so many different levels.

I’m not radical enough in my general personality to go out there and protest or hug trees or anything, but within my own self I do have a few strong feelings on matters of the environment…

I think people get sick of all the rhetoric.  On any subject actually.  And I think people have become cynical.  I also think that too often politics get in the way.

I questioned whether or not I should even engage in the subject of the day.  It’s a lot to sort through and people have so many differing opinions.  But if we could just lay aside opinions and politics, and practice some good old fashioned common sense… that would be so refreshing.

What it comes down to is this…

We are hurting the Earth.  And over time… it is possible to wreck it.  We have not been good stewards.  And we have to take steps (however small) and make changes in how we do things, or we will regret it.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out (for all those who demand to see the scientific proof), and it’s not about which political party lines you fall within.  And before you are tempted to blow this off as something that doesn’t really affect you or really matter in the grand scheme of things for your life… you couldn’t be more wrong ~ this is about all of us, and this planet we call home.

Below is one of the videos I found while perusing the Internet this morning and is very nicely done.  The quote at the beginning teeters on some of that political rhetoric I mentioned, but still makes its point.  And I love Two Steps From Hell’s music!

I know… the end is somewhat anticlimactic with that Koala.  I mean… I like Koala’s just as much as the next person, but it’s not a particularly inspiring animal lol!

This next one tells the basics about what Earth Day is, and the simple things we can do…

I’d love to hear what your thoughts are about Earth Day…
