Plant Therapy

Abele Green is my 15 year old Easter Lilly that needs a haircut.

She gets equal work for equal pay.

I have the responsibility to water, weed and repot her.

She keeps me honest and freshens up my place.

A reminder of my friendship with my mother, I try to treat her with TLC…

Earth Day Canada

A memory from September 11, 1970

As a young boy my elders gave me a lesson on why not vandalize a tree.

I eventually learned about ecology, inner tidal zones, and naturalism.

I did a lot of tree planting and forest fire fighting as a young man.

I spend a lot of time outdoors: walking, hiking and biking.

I try to recycle, recover and reuse.

All these activities are still practiced across the country.

My Planet (Earth Day Tribute)

The mountains, rivers, and valleys are various parts of my body, the thin layer of dirt is my skin.

Underground there is a natural engine or molten core that spins like the sun.

I have a heart that pumps blood.

And a brain that connects to a nervous system, lymphatic system, a spinal column with a muscular system that wraps in organs that produce nutrients to maintain different parts of my body.

The earth is no different. She has earthquakes, tidal waves, trapped gasses in the oceans and underground, lava flows, hot springs, and many other natural occurring activities above and below her surface.

Worms and flukes make up a variety of small creatures who eat,reproduce and die.

There are bigger systems like flocks of birds or smaller ones like colonies of microbes.

We all eat, reproduce and die.

We live among each other,

We affect and need each other.

We live, reproduce and die together.

This is Mother Earth.

This is nature…

Earth Day April 22, 2018

The slogan this year is to consume less and pledge more…

There is too many plastics being consumed and I pledge to cook more food and buy less plastic.

I will ‘put my money where my mouth is’ and pledge more cash and resources into getting kids more playing time outside.

Climate Change is a good cause to help in the year to come, going to earth day is a proper way to change myself.

I need to read and write and therefore research this day today!
