Happy Earth Day!

Among the many people proposed for commemoration last summer at General Convention were John Muir and the very interesting Hudson Stuck. And what do you know: here they are on Earth Day!

Here's a short quote pulled from a longer quote that I used a year ago, but I like it enough to want to use it again. If I had the time, I'd spend the day reading John Muir; he's terrific.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe. One fancies a heart like our own must be beating in every crystal and cell, and we feel like stopping to speak to the plants and animals as friendly fellow-mountaineers.

From My First Summer in the Sierra.

Not much mention of Earth Day here in the UK which is a shame, thanks for sharing this with us.
