Earth Day usually falls under my radar, but this year I made a point to do something to celebrate. Maybe its because there have been too many reminders lately of the fragility of all life.
I pedaled to an old boat ramp, found a rock to sit on...and did absolutely nothing for about fifteen minutes. Then I realized how rare it is when I'm outdoors and not moving somewhere. Eventually my mind let go of the pointless chatter of the past and future and settled into the landscape. I won't tell you what happened... that's our secret. But it was amazing, and is there for anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear.
Find your place(s). Give thanks that you are able to enjoy it and do what you can to protect it from harm.
