Earth day - 2015
Nice earth shot above
Looks like a hurricane in the US gulf coast and there's a good size low in the North Pacific.
I like shots like this because you can see the earth as a whole without the artificial country boundaries we arbitrarily establish and then change.
It's a view somewhat above the normal human concerns.
That storm in the Gulf coast doesn't care that it's going to hit the US.
If conditions were right it might be heading more to the west and into Mexico.
That's just how it is.
Of course I mean no problem for the storm, thousands of lives depend on the landfall of the storm.
The point being that it is a big interrelated organizational structure that earthlings can barely grasp.
But since it's Earth Day,
take a breath
and let it out
and try to feel the planet
Belated Happy Birthday to John Muir.
If you haven't read his work yet then take a stroll on down to the library and pick up a copy of any of his books.
Enjoy the day
