“A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”

This is dedicated to my belated mother and her mother (my grandmother) who taught me to love flowers, especially the pansy. Today would be my mom's birthday. Heaven is having a party for her as she loved birthdays!

"Earth Day" is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. My only hope is that most people will start to understand that we must change our ways and that we must protect our "home".

Challenge #141.0 - Award Tree - It's Your Earth

The green earth has a stubborn streak for survival. It was born from a violent Big Bang explosion in the universe some four billion years ago & since then continuously evolved to pulsate with life in one form or the other. As illustrated by this diminutive tuft of grass, which glows to live another beautiful day on the ever encroaching sand dunes of the Namib Desert, the earth has the desire to live till the sun exhausts all it's Hydrogen.


Are we Homosapiens, the most intelligent species on earth helping the earth's desire to live? Do we want to preserve the green "Oxy-Generators" tree cover around us or convert everything into a Concrete Desert?


Think..... & then Act on it.

"As with all cusp people the Capricorn/Aquarius is of two elements-Earth and Air

They have the practical,conservative side of Capricorn and the unpredictable nature of Aquarius

They are capable of providing electric excitement where ever they go.

They have a vivid fantasy life.

They can use their active fantasy to express themselves through many types of art forms.

They must find a creative outlet for their creative energy.

Try not to go off the deep end but find those that understand and appreciate."


A shot of the sky this morning - the original is blue sky with white fluffy clouds. I like this version as it reflects my mood of the past few days. It will get better - today is warm and sunny. Ever onwards ...

Earth raised up her head

From the darkness dread and drear,

Her light fled,

Stony, dread,

And her locks covered with grey despair


- William Blake


But this is how I feel..

At first glance this terrain may seem somewhat extraterrestrial. But if you look at this through my vision, you may be surprised at what you see.

Imagine the sky in this photograph were actually the earth. Notice the concave curvature of the horizon, further supporting the idea that the planet earth is actually above, and you're standing on another planet. A better way to see this is to make the photograph full-screen, then step back from your monitor and view from across the room.

Every element in the photographed helped me that day to see this vision. The clouds were awesome that day. Comments welcome!

Our Earth World is in greater peril than ever, but there is also unprecedented opportunity to build a new future. Earth Day has the power to bring about historic advances in climate policy, renewable energy and green jobs and catalyze millions who make personal commitments to sustainability - A Billion Acts of Green™ – mobilizing the power of people to create change by taking small steps in our homes, our schools and our businesses that add up to an enormous collective action.


Earth Day is a pivotal opportunity for people, corporations, and governments to join together to create a global green economy. Our coordinated efforts now will be recognized by future generations as a turning point.

Let's protect it so others after us can truly enjoy its 'Magical' Beauty...

Thank you all!


Anche quest’anno si celebra l’Earth Day, la Giornata della Terra, prevista per sabato 22 aprile. Si tratta di una data molto importante, nata per sostenere la formazione di una nuova coscienza ambientale e la salvaguardia del pianeta Terra. Per l’occasione, in tutto il mondo si organizzano eventi a tema e anche l’Italia non è da meno.

L’Earth Day viene celebrato dalle Nazioni Unite il 22 aprile, un mese dopo l’Equinozio di Primavera, e vede la partecipazione di 175 paesi. La sua origine risale al 1970, quando venne celebrata per la prima volta per volere dell’attivista pacifista John McConnel. Da movimento universitario divenne poi un evento educativo ed informativo per valutare le problematiche ambientali, l’inquinamento, la distruzione degli ecosistemi e la conservazione delle risorse naturali.

The area outside the cafe at the Mount John Observatory, situated above Lake Tekapo, was all abuzz late on the evening of December 21 last year. The clouds had cleared and had revealed a perfect Milky Way and plenty of stars to aim the small telescopes at.

Non lontano dalla spiaggia di Playa El Golfo, si trova una delle attrazioni più singolari di Lanzarote, isola straordinariamente ricca di peculiarità e di forti caratteristiche identitarie dal punto di vista naturalistico.


Si tratta del Lago Verde, un nome straordinariamente anonimo per un paesaggio così suggestivo.

Il Lago Verde è spesso definito come un simbolo di Lanzarote per il suo essere simbiotico nei confronti delle due forze naturali che hanno generato e scolpito l’isola nel corso dei millenni: il vulcano e l’acqua marina.

La laguna è stata generata da un antico cratere vulcanico sprofondato sotto il suo peso, nella cui cavità è confluita acqua marina.

Organismi vegetali marini ed alghe hanno potuto prosperare nel pur ridotto spazio del lago grazie alla presenza dei sali minerali di origine vulcanica. Tale presenza vegetale ha donato al laghetto il caratteristico colorito verde intenso.

Il contrasto tra la oscura roccia vulcanica circostante e il verde profondo del lago costituiscono quasi un’iride, un occhio verde che affascina e ammalia con il suo sguardo.

No se trata de una hora, se trata de cada momento. Concienciar es actuar, desde arriba, y luego cada uno en sus casas. No es buenas palabras, sonrisas, cumbres y reuniones. No. Es actuar, hacer propuestas que tengan una finalidad, que lleguen a buen puerto, que lleguen a ser efectuadas...

A view of Swiftcurrent creek just below the falls, on it's way to Lake Sherburne.

Love those glacial teal waters.


Happy Earth Day!

Our precious planet must be respected, honored and protected.

Our first priority should be to protect our home and it's amazing wonders and gifts (and all other creatures that we are blessed to share it with), not the pursuit of the almighty dollar. Doesn't make any $en$e in the long run when we'll be spending more dollars to fix our mistakes from our plundering and short sightedness down the road. Sadly, for the pols and money chasers this isn't the case.


This image is from the spectacular Many Glacier area of Glacier Park. The experts say there will no longer be any glaciers in the Park within a decade, or sooner. These teal waters will be no more, as glacial silt is the source and cause of this alluring color. The entire ecosystem will be altered, impacting everything downstream and all it's present wildlife residents there now. For those of us who love Nature, this is a tragedy and irreparable loss. Let's hope the politicians wake up and quit selling out for their own livelihoods and $ecurity. Sadly, the prospect of that is slim to none.......this is but one example of how man is negatively impacting our precious home.


May wisdom and respect for our cherished planet arrive soon.

Enjoy a special and memorable Earth Day.

Earth may try to break you

And Life, she'll try to take you

Love may live without you

And Silence may let the pain through


But Nature will love you kindly

And restore all you've lost

You're a creature of the Earth

Of nature hard and soft


Stress may do you badly

And Anxiety may wrack your bones

Apathy may take you gladly

And Tears may drag you from home


But Wind and Water will grow you

Laughter and Love will heal you

The Sun will hold and cradle you

And let Joy come through.........Chaus
