Before my greening, I had never heard of Earth Day, probably because it originated out of the USA in 1970. I have now of course due to the Internet, but if it wasn't for internet media, you would never know that it existed where I live. Here in Australia, there are very little in the way of Earth Day celebrations.
So I am going to celebrate it in my own special way. I am going to put my hands into the soil today and just hold them there for a while and think about all the ways that I am connected to the Mother Earth/Gaia/Terra/Globe or whatever you want to call it. It should be a powerful experience.
Then I shall plant some seedlings in the very same soil and watch them grow, and give thanks to the wonderful bounty that this great place provides us, but only if we live in harmony with it.
Enjoy your Earth Day!
