Celebrate Earth Day – Be green!

Grasshopper Posing!

He sat there posing so nicely, I couldn’t resist. This is a photograph taken last summer. I stepped outside and there he was …ready for his close-up, so I obliged.


And then I was reminded of this scene from a television show. Master ‘Po’ is teaching a student ‘Caine’, in a monastery, a lesson:

Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear?
Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
Caine: No.
Po: Do you hear the grasshopper which is at your feet?
Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

I wonder what we miss because we aren’t really listening? Our planet is calling to us. Do you here her?


Thanks for stopping by, have a great Earth Day!

  1. I worry so that if we don’t act soon by taking some very dramatic steps, we may be too late. Mother Earth has been so very patient with us but I fear her patience is waning.

    • Thank you Harula. Did you know that our heartbeat tunes itself on the rhythm of Mother Earth’s pulse? Those invisible vibrations that all life consciously or unconsciously is aware of. I’ll bet you knew that! xoxo

    • It is good to know that some of us are, Ute. And there are more each day who join the “caring” group where our mother earth is concerned. Diligence, determination and of course caring will get the job done (however sooner would definitely be better than later!!!!) xx

Thank you for your thoughts!
