Happy Earth Day
Happy Earth Day everyone.
It's time to remember just how dependent we are on this little blue marble spinning in a sea of stars. We are all Children of Earth, trapped in a fragile contained ecosystem.
Maybe we'll skate past this particular crisis and maybe we'll blow ourselves back to the Stone Age. It's hard to tell.
But for today, I'm going to take a little time to be grateful to this amazing, unique little planet. It has cradled us and allowed us to expand our minds and souls to incredible heights. Nature is a model of creative solutions and efficiency: Saharan desert winds blow sand to feed the South American rainforest and a spinning metal core protects us from cosmic radiation.
The Earth is just plain cool and we should all remember that.
