Wednesday (April 1st) is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, but, due to the covid 19 virus and social distancing, these big celebrations are not happening:  The Great Global Cleanup, Earthrise, Footprints For The Future, Artists For The Earth, plus numerous global teach-ins and regional and local events.

Mother Nature rules with an uneven hand, from the Australian fires and the current pandemic, to ineffable beauty and bounty.

Thank you, John Denver, lover of nature, for caring, for sharing, and reminding.

… the Colorado rocky mountain high

I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky

The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye

Rocky mountain high …
