Earth Day

Today is Earth Day, I was planning to start this post with Happy Earth Day!  I decided not to add the word Happy. Why?

Is it really fair to say the word happy at this time with so much pain in the world?

The Earth is infested with a virus that is killing many people, destroying families, jobs, and life per si because of human’s careless actions. At the same time, the WHO, healthy officials, and politicians are dealing with the situation as if it was a game.

So, there is no happy, just Earth Day! I do hope that we can find time to disconnect from the big chaos in the world right now and to focus on the goodness that the Earth gifts us everyday.

I found this gorgeous dandelion in my backyard yesterday. It’s so delicate and intriguing, a work of art from Nature. It made me smile and I felt gratitude towards the Earth, which, in spite of everything the humanity does to it, is still a beautiful place to be. 

Stay safe!

  1. Hi Elizabeth–just wanted to respond to you since your comment does not show on my blog site. This is so sporadic….some comments show, others do not. But I can only ‘like’ a comment, not reply to it. This is Day 2….. I have received several comments (that, again, do not show) that lots more people than just me are also having problems. So, we wait. But I wanted to thank you for your comment! Hopefully everything is back and working soon.
