It seemed fitting that the last post in this sequence should be about Earth Stewardship. What makes someone a good steward of the earth? I return to Baba Dioum’s famous quote: “In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.”
One of my favorites! The Rainbow Child
As I mentioned earlier, I am recording my new CD. If you like my songs and would like to show your support, please visit my Kickstarter page; a $10 pledge will give you a free download of the CD! I am really thrilled with the collection of songs and think they are some of the best I have written.
Have a WONDERFUL week, and Earth Day! I shall be thinking of everyone around the world celebrating!
In gratitude for life and this precious Earth!

Last week I read about an Osprey that travelled 10,000 miles to come back to the place where he has started a family before!
Many migratory birds rely on berries when they are traveling, while in their settled habitats, they might feed mainly on insects. (A recent Science Article reminds us that we could learn a lot about healthy eating from birds' feeding habits!) Colder winters, warmer springs and summers impact wildlife and vegetation in different ways, but there is no doubt that all of life is being affected by these global changes.
5. What migratory species pass through your neighborhood? Find pictures of some of these birds or butterflies and post them by the window inviting children to be on the lookout. Create a chart with some of the pictures so that you can post the dates on which they are observed.
Green Action of the Week!
