Today is international World Water Day, and all over the world there are celebrations and people raising awareness for the appreciation and care of one of our most important natural resources. Wherever you are and whatever your day holds, I encourage you to think about water and your relationship to water. What does it mean to you? Is there a favorite river, beach or lake that you have fond memories of or strong ties to? What can we do to take care of it and keep it clean?
In the wake of recent disasters both natural and man-made, I did something very out of character for me, which was tuning in to the news for a week. In letting the news into my life, there came along with it a lot of concern and sadness for the people of Japan, and for our earth as nuclear power plants were melting down and releasing radiation. The consequences of pursuing nuclear energy weighed heavily on my mind. A lot of worry crept in also, over things I heard about the possibility of nuclear drift and fallout reaching the West coast. It took a lot of energy to sift through all of the information and circle around the question of what I could do with it.
I am only just me.
