  • Time is very relative, and so is age. When there would be no mirror or no shining lake surface - the mirror of bygone times - and we would not be able to see our "aging" face, which means sagging skin folds and eye lids or brown spots and wrinkles, we wou...

Sunrise

    I'm sitting on my kitchen table watching the sun come up. Some of my only good memories with my dad are of me and him watching the sun come up early in the morning, around 5am, before he went to work. There's something special about Spring sunrises in particular.

     

    It's awe inspiring that something as old and tortured as our planet still comes out of hibernation and back to life year after year. It's seen and experienced every bit of pain and trauma that's ever occurred. It has suffered disregard for it's well being again and again. Deforestation. Animal extinctions caused by humans. Manmade climate change. We've basically just taken a big nasty dump on planet Earth and everything that inhabits it in every way imaginable and then some and still the planet tries to heal itself season after season. There is no other time when it's resilience is as obvious, bold, and beautifully defiant as it is on Spring mornings.

    This planet is bigger and tougher than anyone can well imagine. Four and a half billion trips around the sun, trillions of sunrises, what we call our world is just a film on the surface, thinner than an onion skin.

    The Earth is our home. We were lucky to see photos of the Earth from space, the whole year Astronaut Scott Keely was at the International Space Station orbiting 230 miles overhead. The Earth still looks like a blue marble, with its twirling white clouds surrounding it. We were able to witness the weather, land formations, lights at night, the aurora lights, and the various colors, like a giant painting. We do need to care for the gifts the a Earth gives us naturall so future generations can enjoy life at its best. It's best is to see the changing seasons. They each bring their own beauty, portraying life, death, and resurrection. And then be thankful. For the beauty of the Earth, for the beauty of the skies,...
