This lovely yellow bloom set against the lake's inky blue called out to me today. Its beauty is temporary, captured here in the late afternoon sun and a gentle breeze, but its cyclical nature almost guarantees a future bloom!

As we approach the 40th anniversary of the environmental political stance named Earth Day, activism continues to work one step-at-a-time to improve the nature of our Mother Earth. Like so many initiatives, there is much work still to do, but when one thinks back to the 1970's, we have made some improvements (re: prevention of species extinction, decreased air and water pollution, and oil spills). Now we need to focus on developing nations who are destroying the natural resources in order to survive - what other practical ways can they live without harming the environment?

  1. This is spectacular - the yellow just pops against the blue background.
    Earth Day - should be every day and not like the flower - a seasonal celebration. We have made progress, but baby steps compared to what has to be done.
