There is … beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter. – Rachel Carson
Happy Earth Day to all. How do you connect to the Earth every day? I find even the simplest actions help – looking up at the stars before I go to bed, listening to the chaos of bird chorus when I wake, trying to identify one bird at a time by song (harder for me than by sight), loving that we saw our first Red-breasted Grosbeak on a Sunday morning bird walk. My newest shawl is a Color Affection shawl (pattern on Ravelry) in muted teal, moss-olive green, and bright blue – colors of the sea, earth, and sky.
