The beginning of summer is magical and magnificent. The earth pulsates with vivid hues that are bold and bright beyond my comprehension. How could something as tiny as a seed produce such exquisiteness after the long and dormant season of winter? This annual phenomenon is a reawakening, a reason for celebration. I look forward to experiencing every flower, blade of grass, the trees, leaves, and stems that shoot out of the earth, between rocks, on hills, prairies, amongst the farm fields and inside and around the ponds.
My eyes are on creation. I am just a traveler passing through this way in the world. These thoughts that swarm through my head when I'm this close and personal with nature fills my heart with love and devotion to keep the environment safe and healthy. I could not imagine life without flowers and all the living creatures that flutters and lands upon something this beautiful. This is their source of food and nutrition. The eyes of the earth look back at me and I am reminded, they depend on us for their survival.
