Happy Earth Day!

I know this must be obvious to everyone else; but I just realized that Earth Day rhymes with birthday. Where has my brain been all of these years? Maybe it is because I never associated Earth Day with a celebration of a beginning. The day has always felt more about environmental awareness and preservation. The Walt Kelly quote still seems to express the day the best, "We have met the enemy and he is us." Well, HAPPY EARTH DAY!

I never thought of the earthday/birthday connection! Thanks for pointing it out for us slow thinkers. Does seem obvious, once you know.

Oh yeah, Walt Kelly. A Cassandra-like genius and prophet if there ever was one.
