Yesterday was Earth Day.
I’ve always celebrated this day with my children in some form or another, but this year I wasn’t able to because I had to work. So, while I was giving instructions to my friends and family to be sure to hug a tree and give thanks to Mother Earth, I was hugging a couple of computer monitors.
My boys got to make like David Attenborough and go on a nature walk though.
Today’s Musical Monday is in honour of our Mother Earth … it’s a song that harkens back to when I was a wee lassie called Bright Eyes from the movie Watership Down. Ye know, the one about all those poor rabbits. I remember crying my eyes out watching that at the local cinema. Anyway, I’ve picked this version by a band called Puressence rather than Art Garfunkel’s so it kinda has an edgier vibe to it.
Oh, and happy belated Earth Day to you. Did you hug a tree?
