Hello! I'm here and I'm grateful!
Yesterday I woke up to this news. It got under my skin and wouldn't leave me alone. Then I let myself just weep about it. You better believe I didn't drive a car yesterday (I have been driving about once a week since we moved to Lexington; I'll find the bike route for that one).
Sorry to mess up your day if you hadn't heard.
So today, on Mother's Day, as people get gushy about their mamas, I'm getting gushy about my mama: my Mama Earth. I do so love the experience of being an earthling. Even at this time and place in history. I get down about it. But I do believe I'm here at this time for a reason. So after I cry a little (or a lot), I get back up and get back to gardening and spreading the love and light.
