She Is Still Here

Mother Earth..

I think the saddest part of this pandemic moment in our history is that it is all consuming, then add to it the fact that we are now being ‘ruled’ by a leadership which does not lead at all but is rather dragging those of us who still have morals and a conscience to slaughter on a hook, and things look grim. The ones who have decided to drink the kool aid are marching to Frankenstein’s castle with torches held high, ready for destroying the terrifying enemy, whatever the ruthless leader decides that is.

But today was set aside as a special day, to celebrate Mother Earth and bring awareness to conserving her beauty, resources and gifts. I saw nothing of this celebration in the news. It was only on social media by the same people who are fighting the insidious movement to disband all measures which have been put into place to try and preserve the very creation which sustains our lives here. Do these greedy men think their money is going to save them or are they so fearful of the truth that they can’t imagine the dire consequences of what will happen to the human race if we don’t effect a change now.

I cannot fathom a world without these things....

My grandson was born on Earth Day. Today he celebrated another year of life on this planet. He is proud to be an ‘Earth Child’, and even at his young age understands about preservation and sustaining life. I got to share a few minutes by video with him. They were due to come visit us next month but it can’t happen now due to the virus. But we are happy for technology at this time. We cannot allow ourselves to be so focused on the issue of this challenging virus that we ignore the methodical dismantling of all the measures that have been put into place in recent years to ensure our children and their children have a world to grow old with. 

Can you look at this face and say, “I don’t care what you might need as long as I get to keep my money safely in my own bank account until I die.” ? 

Happy Birthday Earth Child. Never give up working towards what is best for the good of everyone. 

I have mindful, intelligent children and grandchildren who deserve the best this life has to offer. Seeing the wonder on a child’s face is the most magical moment I can imagine. 

We had a Space X launch today. My birthday boy actually got to see it by video in one of those serendipitous moments I love...

Mother Earth is still here and she will remain. It is we who tread with dishonor upon her face that are in danger of extinction. 


  1. This is a wonderful way to honor Earth Day. Well done, Cheryl.

    1. Thanks Dan. She deserves many days in her honor.

  2. We are stewards of this land. Let's hope saner minds prevail.

  3. Beautiful pictures!!! I, too, found it both sad and maddening that everyone is so concerned about the coronavirus that they've forgotten ... everything else, including care for the planet. They're using more plastic than ever, and throwing their trash in parks and on sidewalks everywhere they go. Not a single thing that I could find was done for Earth Day. Long after the coronavirus is but a memory, we will still need to rely on Earth's resources, but ... people seem capable of only dealing with one thing at a time. Thanks for these beautiful pics, my friend!

    1. Thanks so much for your words and for stopping by. Because you do not have a blogger profile I’m not sure who this is, though and would like to! 😊

Silent Watching....

The elders watched from the precipice of destruction, stoic, unmoved in their constant vigil, feeling mildly perturbed by it all.

The ancient one shivered against the untimely chill that had crept insidiously over the season, forcing his tribe to take to the skies all too soon, seeking warmth- sustenance.

The Great Hunter finished the remains of its meal wondering when the last kill would be as the Keepers pushed further in, stripping away the vestiges of their life’s blood.

They bowed their heads in reverent shame for such disregard of their Mother’s world, their chirping drowned by the clamor of progress, the cacophony maddening.

She made them stewards of her Creation, they hold her Essence in their hands, delicate, brilliant, mighty, precious! How could they betray her trust for gold dust?

Can they not see the universe in a grain of sand, feel her breath in the rush of the wind, see her artistry painted across the  canvas of a blue sky in the  rainbow after a storm?

Her children r…

Memories and Opportunities

The past year was a whirlwind of change for me. I suppose some, more stationary,  people might say my life has been like a whirlwind. We have moved more than a dozen times in 30 years and to different cities, states and even out of country! Before my sons were grown, these moves affected their lives as well. We have become known as “the gypsies”. 
I am a water sign, a Cancer, which influences me to be a nester by nature with an adventurous spirit. It has been tested many times. I have laughed, cried, screamed at the walls and picked myself up by the proverbial bootstraps to carry on. When I was younger I bemoaned the people I left behind and envied those friends who stayed in the same house, the same town, the same city and state so that they were one with their surroundings, family and friends. I longed to hang onto what I had, like a photo in album that you keep forever. Yet we all know that nothing in this tangible world lasts forever. So I keep the images in my heart and memory a…


Changing, rearranging, adapting, growing...metamorphosis. Sometimes it seems perfectly painless and beautiful, like watching an ugly caterpillar (I think they’re all pretty) spin a cocoon and lie dormant until such time as it emerges-transformed-into a glorious spotted butterfly.

Then there are those changes thrust upon us, life altering events that shatter our ideas about what is normal and perfect, right and wrong, beautiful and ugly. Injury, illness, loss and suffering can leave scars that may be nearly imperceptible to those around us but that loom in our own view as insurmountably ugly.
I feel most things come into my life for a reason and  try my best to understand these events, images and occurrences with an open mind. I feel the same uncertainty, sorrow and frustration as anyone else; but at some point, knowing that the universe is an intricate tapestry of Existence that is interdependent upon every thread that was woven into it from the beginning, I seek reason within the ma…
