Gathering together

Today I join with other like minded people,
other environmentalist.
Today all over the world people are
writing about their concerns,
they are sharing their experiences, their hopes
and their dreams.

My way of life is simple.
I recycle, reuse and reduce.

I replace only when it is necessary.
I repair when I am able.
I restore as the need arises.

I respect life.
I am responsible.
I rejoice in bio-diversity.

I am rewarded.

Dear Sprite,
All life is sacred. We must walk our talk. When we join together our walk is easier and our voices are heard.
Thank you,

Dear Mary Grace,
I am so glad you enjoy the photo essays. I never know what birds or butterflies I will see! Sometimes I have a word I am thinking about and I go about looking for my word.
Sharing the photos is fun.
Today I just wanted to show how simple it is to have these lovely butterflies in your backyard. All Summer and now into the Autumn the butterflies have enjoyed zinnias and marigolds. So easy and so beautiful. I save the seed so next year I will scatter the seeds and there will be food for the butterflies again. Both flowers are drought tolerant and are part of my companion planting. This is sustainable gardening.

Dear Nita,
It will take all of us working together to restore our environment. We must act now, so much habitat has already been lost. Our Oceans, our rivers and our wet lands need us to pay attention. I send my gratitude and my love to the waterways I visit.

Dear Judy,
Thank you. I do the best I can each day. It is so easy to live in harmony with nature. Also so beautiful! I have blue ribbon days with the birds and the bugs.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I hope each person does do their part to care for Mother Earth. When my husband picks up all the trash people throw out of their cars I wonder. People could be more respectful. Our food supply is tainted with chemicals. Our clothing and household produts are full of carcinogens. Someone is not doing their part. We need to vote with our pocketbooks!
We need to demand clean air and clean water. We need to speak up for the habitat of humans and wildlife!
Hugs,
