Happy 40th Birthday Earth Day!

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
~Chief Seattle, 1855

There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves,
that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet.
~Brooke Medicine Eagle

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt,
finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
sermons in stones, and good in everything.
~William Shakespeare


  1. Hi Sally.
    I don't know what the problem with my comments was. Anyway-seems to work now. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. It really makes me blogging fun. Your pic's today are really neat. Great words.

  2. Hi Denise!
    Glad you enjoyed it! I had fun looking for Earth Day stuff. :)
    Happy almost weekend to you!

  3. Hi Leslie!
    Blogger seems to be wonky lately - first my counter on my comments was off and now the no access to comments business. WAH! Thankfully all seems to be well today. Isn't it fun when you receive a comment?! Makes the day.
    Happy almost weekend to you!

  4. Fun, Fun, Fun. Love the yummie cookies.

    The Redsnesday posting had all my favorite kid books.

  7. Hey, I got the magazine in the mail today- yay! Its a great issue isn't it?

  9. Sally, I have fun googling stuff too sometimes. Wow, look at that oriental script on that comment above mine...beautiful.

    No, I assume that lil' beautiful purple flower that the birds left me to see is a wild orchid variety or something. lol

  10. Hi Sally,
