When I graduated from college, my friend Leah and I traveled to Europe. While we were in London, we saw this exhibit, which to this day stills moves me. The images then (above) were large scale. I remember feeling dwarfed by not just the size but the feeling of humility in realizing my place in earth. Just one tiny facet. I still feel that way, and I think that is one part of why I love traveling so much. But now, I think more than ever, I have a greater appreciation for what the earth gives to us. Consistently. And graciously.
I hope this Earth day that I can keep a pledge to maintain a closer eye on my choices, the products, the packaging, the food I buy. To look at ways to reduce the amount of waste I consume. Ask questions on the biodegradability. Because really Earth does so much for us, we should a little in return.
Word to yo' Mother... (Earth).
