Blog Action Day

Today is Blog Action Day, a day in which thousands of individual bloggers will unite to blog about a single topic, the environment, each in their own unique way to encourage people to think about and work towards a better future.

A primary theme of my blog has been my love for and appreciation of the natural world. I love hiking in beautiful forests and along clear streams and lakes. I love the cycles of the natural world, the hawk migration in the Fall, the return of the warblers in the Spring. To me, nature is a source of beauty, inspiration, serenity, awe and wonder, and joy.

Another theme of my blog has been my appreciation of the wonderful diversity of the human family and a concern for our collective future. It has become quite clear in recent years that the entire Earth is one home of the family of humanity, and only our unified action can save our home. All parts of the Earth are intricately related, and our individual actions have an impact on the entire globe. The only way to collectively protect our home planet is to work together as one family.

So, on Blog Action Day, I add my voice to the collective voice of thousands of bloggers who are posting about the environment from our unique perspectives. You can browse over 15,000 participating blogs by clicking here. Enjoy blog action day!!!

Our common home

"Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley, and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention of God hath been made, and His praise glorified." Bahá'u'lláh

Your words are really moving Anne, especially with that photograph. And the quote at the end really speaks to me.
