Who’s Going To Save You If You Can’t Save Yourself?

I want to take you on an adventure,


where the trees still tell us stories.

Somewhere new,

…and Revolutionary*

It begins where the children play

and it involves a lot of cutting

in order to make more.

I long to set your heart on fire

So I have an announcement:

From now on, we will be no longer be navigating by the sun,

We will be switching to the moon.

Yes,  what I am announcing is a Sea Change…

because we have to.

And today is Judgment Day.

Because, if you can’t save yourself,

who will?

Did you know that 350 is the most important number on the planet? Find out why.

Light a candle and say a prayer~

This is going to be one Mother (earth) of a Revolution!

And — maybe the baby will be born tomorrow… that would be appropriate!

What a wonderful idea to continue the cycle of care . . . as we care for mother earth, we honor our mothers.
Love, Grandma D
