Inspiration for 2014

1 Comment

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.

One thought on “Inspiration for 2014

  1. From what I’ve known, if all site owners and blog owners wrote such amazing content as you currently
    do, the internet would be much more useful
    than before.
