Falling in Love with Earth
This Thursday, April 22nd is Earth Day.
I was thinking about what Earth Day means to me and all there is to do to take care of her when a thought crossed my mind, use Earth Day as an opportunity to connect with the earth. Spending time in nature, looking closely at the plants and flowers, noticing the birds and the squirrels, listening to the wind as it blows through the trees. Watching the path of the sun and the shadows that fall. Being present with the surroundings of nature in even small ways, as weeds poking through cracks in the pavement.
Fall in love with the intricacies, the nuances, the little things that becin our attention. They are always ebbing and flowing around us and under foot.
I will be sure to spend some time in nature on Earth Day. I will take my shoes off and walk in the grass, search for clouds and be with this beloved space we inhabit.
Join me in the act of falling in love with Mother Earth. I think that will be a wonderful way to honor the day and a part of ourselvs.
Happy Earth Day.
