Happy Earth Day
I am always amazed at how our earth regenerates itself. How even after a devastating fire, the green returns the following year. Or how after a strong storm, the next day will be bright and sunny; bushes that bowed down the day before, now standing tall. I think, too, of weeds cropping up in sidewalk cracks. Nothing seems to keep that life force down. How resilient mother earth is! How persistent. This earth day, I’m thinking about ways I can be a little more regenerative, a little more life-giving. Like, planting an herb garden, so I won’t buy herbs in plastic wraps or throw out half of a large bunch from the farmers’ market that I never seem to finish. In my backyard, I can just snip what I need. I also think love has a regenerative property, that grows exponentially, like so many things in the natural world. We humans need love to grow! So, I’m going to work a little harder at spreading that love around.
Happy Earth Day!
