|Exists only in my mind...|
Our Earth is brilliant. Even though it has been in the midst of great drama with the earthquake in Japan and the tsunami, it doesn't miss a beat getting ready for Spring. When I am embroiled in a drama that shakes my little world, many regular everyday things fall off my radar. Mother Earth? She keeps right on keeping on.
She remembers the equinox, to the moment, when the sun crosses her equator to signal the beginning of Spring. No one needs to remind her to bud out the flowers and turn the grass green. She knows not to tilt that day, not away from the sun nor toward it. No clocks have to be set and no time needs to be measured to be sure she remembers to make, for that one day, night and day exactly the same length.
I'm grateful every morning when I wake up and all during the day...for many things. One thing is my appreciation for the solar system we live in, our Earth which keeps turning and bringing the flowers and the tides to the beach for us...no matter what else she has on her plate.
Here is what Mother Earth has going on in my backyard. What is going on in yours?
