Happy Earth Day

By Shannon Perry

Earth Day is a sacred day in my opinion. Notice that you can make the word scared out of the same letters. Let’s try just for today to focus on the beauty and profundity of nature, its toughness and strength and great ability to recover. I am away from the clinic. Having just hiked through Joshua trees that could have been thousands of years old, I am entirely humbled by their ability to survive. I wish I were a better photographer, but bear with me as I share my iPhone photos of Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas, Nevada. Also I share a beautiful poem from Earth Prayers, edited by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon, Harper Collins 1991. Be well and love the Earth.
