Sunny Side Up

"A three billion year old planet floating in the vast universe with mountains, seventy percent seas and oceans, fertile lands, immense forests, rivers and lakes, sea shores and deserts, this is where we humans have the privilege to live, the latest, most advanced newcomers in evolution. What an immense, incredible responsibility we have to be a right, positive element in the further evolution of that planet. That is the big question before us in the new century and millennium."
- Dr. Robert Muller -

This week’s sunny side up is an awe-inspiring video. What a planet we live on. What an amazing world. Let's make sure to take care of it.



A good weekend, to all!

  2. Beautiful video -- makes me think of Alice Walker's poem about the earth with the line "Her blue body everything we know."

  3. Oh wow, Martha...that was amazing. I especially love the birds at the beginning. I have always dreamed of seeing a murmuration of starlings like the one in the video in person. I watched one once on video that made me cry---it was so incredibly beautiful! Thank you for that.

    Happy Weekend to you, too!
