Last week, our beautiful planet celebrated her 50th Earth Day.
I hope you hugged a tree! If not, there’s still time.
The weather was rough up in Maine, so I didn’t spend Earth Day exploring or adventuring as I would have liked to.
But I did seed several trays of vegetables and herbs for my garden. I also watched Stephen Colbert interview Michael Moore.
But I was especially moved by the second half of the interview, where Moore refers to the coronavirus as a “coming attraction” for what’s to come if we don’t change.
I love how he compares quarantine to a “time out” for humans. This is exactly how I feel about the situation. It’s like Mother Earth has told us to go to our rooms and think about what we’ve done.
This is a crazy time. But it’s also an opportunity to learn and grow.
I hope you’re staying safe and healthy out there.
