This day lets me reflect on why I love to get out and enjoy quiet places … especially at the beginning of the day. Today – and this point in time gives us opportunity to slow down, and appreciate the simple things and how our awesome planet gives us hope for the future. I am seeing more birds, dolphins, seals, sea starts and anemones than before. The flowers have a special vibrance this year. Or, am I just more observant? Hopefully, we can sustain our earth for our future generations to enjoy. Happy Earth Day!
