From the ground up...

Since people are celebrating Earth Day around the world, I thought I would
pay homage to...well...the Earth of course!
But first I must express my opinion that I believe that
every day should be Earth Day.
It is for me anyway.
I just read something that really resonated with me the other day.
The article was talking about recycling, using your own bags at the store,
reusing, lessening power usage, etc...
The writer said that it didn't matter much if you were at 1% or 100%
as long as you were on that path to get there.
I can't agree more and that's what I try to do everyday.
A little here, a lot there, a bit more somewhere else but
always keeping in mind that I, little old me, CAN make a difference.
When you add it all up it can be quite a bit.
I took a walk at the lake yesterday and it was one of those
crazy spring, sun, rain, wind, sun, rain, cloud, sun but
none the less beautiful with all the trees sprouting and the birds singing
their little hearts out.
And so, a meditation at the the midst of all the tragic things,
here it was just me and Griff and our
wonderful world...
