our time in the sun...

posted on: 4.17.2012

After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life.  

Within decades we must close our eyes again. 

Isn't it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we came to wake up in it?

Richard Dawkins
However you may feel about how we got here or our reason for being here... we're here. 

 And we're all on this big, beautiful, amazing planet together.  The earth is our home, it's the "local" we all share.  

I hope you'll join me in celebrating Earth Day on April twenty-second. 

I'd love to hear how you are using your 
"time in the sun".  

live sweet,

Here are a few things I thought might help get ya excited:
Target will be giving away reusable shopping bags on Earth Day
and 
$50 in coupons for earth friendly products all "Earth Month" long.
15% of these  Heather Brown designed, 100 % post-consumer recycled plastic, phone cases will go to support Jack Johnson's Kokua Hawaii Foundation.

Your little something + my little something = a much bigger something.  
Here's the official site for Earth Day, which was first observed in 1970.

  2. Lisa,
    these are my photos but I have to admit it's the subject that makes them so beautiful. Don't we live on the most amazing planet? Happy Earth Day 2012!

  4. Thanks Jean,

    I'm thinking we'll turn the lights off early and live by candlelight during the evening hours, or, perhaps, no light at all. Oh, and I have been meaning to switch to exclusively using reusable bags for a while now-- maybe the Target giveaway is just the nudge I need.

    Aloha,

  9. Nicole, thanks so much for stopping by my blog through #UBP12. I love your blog - I went to Hawaii as a college graduation present from my parents. Seeing all these pictures makes me miss being there. Maybe, I'll have to make a trip again soon :) Looking forward to seeing all you have on here!
