This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.
All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.
Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
I share these words attributed to Chief Seattle in celebration of the spring equinox, which occurred on March 21st.
Perhaps spring is not evident in your part of the world, but at least we know that the frigid days of winter are near an end, and we can begin to fantasize about planting gardens and outdoor picnics. But spring is also a reminder of our deep connection to all of nature. And the lengthening light stirs us to celebrate and give thanks for this web of life that entwines us. Happy spring!
