I am reliably informed that today, aside from being Good Friday (and a good Friday it is here in the English sunshine), it is International Mother Earth Day.
Established in 2009 by the General Assembly, its aim is to:
"...promote[s] a view of the Earth as the entity that sustains all living things found in nature. Inclusiveness is at the heart of International Mother Earth Day; fostering shared responsibilities to rebuild our troubled relationship with nature..." General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann
...and it was this 'troubled relationship with nature' that I was thinking about on my commute home last night.
What if it's really just all part of the plan?
Something to think about...
