Earth Day 2010

Today is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

It seems to me like the kind of day that needs to be celebrated. It's Mother Earth we are talking about here. Our home planet that houses us and sustains us. It is a part of us as much as we are a part of it. There should be festivals, parades and nature hikes - families spending their time together in communion with this beautiful creation.

Yet there was little mention of this very special day today. No fuss was made. We just carried on regardless.

We, as a family, didn't make much of a fuss either, but spent quite a bit of time outside today, which is where we happened upon this amazing discovery in our garden. The cycle of life and the beauty and complexity of this world that we live in could not be more evident...
