Maple tree at the front of my yard.

This year, Earth Day falls on Sunday, the twenty second of April. Last year I shared one of my favorite poems by Mary Oliver to honor the day.

And this year, I offer a quote from this same amazing poet.

When I think about it, her instructions to notice the world are what I’m trying to do with this blog, with my life.

I hope they inspire you as well.

Instructions for living a life:

Pay attention

Be Astonished

Tell about it.

~Mary Oliver

Happy Earth Day 2012!
