Earth Day

a favorite quote for Earth Day


"An infinite universe will always have the capacity to surprise. The Earth moves, and stones fall from the heavens. Tonight, perseids clatter to earth like hailstones. They embed themselves in arctic ice caps, they sprinkle the forests of the Amazon with a fine cometary dust. Meteors clatter at my feet and I dance in the road.

'Up, noble soul' cried Eckhart. "Put on your jumping shoes which are intellect and love."

I put on my jumping shoes and go leaping between the hedgerows. "

- Chet Raymo
