Earth Day 2019

Earth Day, April 22, 2019 – “Protect our Species”
Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect
and celebrate.   But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.   
~ Robin Wall Kimmerer

“The world doesn't want to be saved. It wants to be loved. That's how you save it.”
