Mother Earth, who has been beleaguered by all manner of human assault for far too long, is staging a tiny comeback. While much of the world shelters in place, the cities have cleaner air, animals feel safer to explore this home we all share, and the skies are not full of noise and contrails. Huzzah for Gaia on this Earth Day 2020!
Today I bring you a short post, with some photographs from my corner of earthly paradise. Most of the photos come from last week’s walks because we’re currently in the midst of a minor deluge. The skies opened up a few days ago, and it’s been almost non-stop until this afternoon. This isn’t a dramatic storm, full of the fury of lightning and thunder and pounding rain. This has been a quiet time to explore all the gradations of grey, with a soft drizzle in the air and an overarching aura of peace and quiet. A time of nurturing and nourishing, and the earth is soaking it up.
Here’s to you, Gaia!
