Teach your children well

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.

These photos represent earth day and hope 
and some just make me smile, 
a deep, deep smile.
(once again these are from the past 
but represent the future)

Now for the smiles

silly three year old, 
now starting kindergarten this fall

Teaching is a gift.
Parenthood teaches.
The lessons are magical and unbelievably hard.
Somedays feel like 27 hours:
 some hours feel like 27 hours
others as a flutter of a wing,
the eye in a blink.

The earth teaches.
It is a gift.
A 4.55 billion year old gift.
Teaching about the earth
and its gifts becomes the
The gift of life and possible life.

Check out this video and all of it's possibilities.
It shows the birth of a solar system.
Beauty and Wonder.
