Oh, You Planet Earth!/Earth Day 2013


Member of the Family

Call me mother, call me father
call me source of life and strength
call me sister, call me brother
call me only home and hearth
call me garden of paradise
call me member of the family
call me earth.

    Wonderful to see again the photos of the things you love, Monica, and your beautiful poem.
    The images of the earth are breathtaking. Did you see this in the NYT? http://www.nytimes.com/pages/science/index.html I wonder if they have collies there 🙂

    • Monica says:

      Dear Bluebee, Thank you so much for this lovely comment, which I missed for some reason. Now when I click on the link, I get today’s info. It has MANY interesting things, but not the one I think you’re referring to. Tell me the subject, and I will locate it. Thank you!

    ‘call me member of the family’ … and how come I missed this on the ‘Reader’ ? Hmm? … Lovely heartfelt words Monica… Mayhap as family members, some take Mother Earth for granted, … I wish it weren’t so… LOVE the photo’s … just going back for another peek… 🙂 xPenx

    • Monica says:

      Dear Pen, Such a good point – earth as a family member whom we sadly take for granted, assuming she will bear up the way she always has. Happy you like the photos – can you see our Stormy in the crib?

    this is truly wonderful Monica
    sorry I have not been around for
    such a long time but hey I can
    soon put that right by calling in
    more often 🙂 🙂 I hope that your
    Thursday has been wicked with
    a hint of the naughty 😉 🙂 xxxx

    I see you don’t use the potential of social websites
    like facebook on your site. You can get big traffic
    from social sites on autopilot using one useful app,
    for more info search in google for:
