It is the end of the year (my first as a blogger) and I decided it was time to be inspired. One of the problems of the environmental movement is it tends to spread a message of doom. No one wants to hear that the world as we know it is going to end, that our way of life is unsustainable. It is so often a negative campaign. Corporations are doing terrible things to the Earth. Animals and plants are dying. But the Earth is an amazing place and I think it’s important to remember that. I took a course online this fall on edX called The Energetic Earth. At the very end of the course the professor showed a series of photos that were beautiful and also illustrated some of the concepts we had talked about. I thought it was a great idea. So I have put together some photos I took over the past few years. The Earth is an amazing place. And if we treat it right it will continue to be an amazing place for a long time. I hope these inspire you. And maybe look through your own photos to find your own inspiration to keep working to live a green life.
