Barberton-Greenstone, South Africa. Westall et al|GSA
These hills are grass-covered and rolling, and they are lovely beyond any singing of it…About you there is grass and bracken and you may hear the forlorn crying of the titihoya, one of the birds of the veld...The grass is rich and matted, you cannot see the soil. It holds the rain and the mist, and they seep into the ground, feeding the streams in every kloof...
Stand unshod upon it, for the ground is holy, being even as it came from the Creator. Keep it, guard it, care for it...
—Alan Paton, Cry, the Beloved Country
Though Earth Day is celebrated this week, we can appreciate the Earth every day. What do you do to connect to its nurturing beauty? What do you feel? What do you do to care for it?
...and inquiries into the nature of our being.
