Happy Earth Day, Earth

100_4136I am here, in this natural environment, more than I am not. And it is a “living breathing organism that I respond to”, as if I were a cell in its bowels; and like the “slight and the obvious intertwined” in a dance, it also responds to me. We are irrevocable in our connection; what harm I bring upon this earth, I bring upon myself and my children and my children’s children. What nourishing I offer is reciprocated a thousand fold. It’s abundance restrained only by the un-natural world; that, motivated by greed, fear, and the competition for it’s gifts.
