You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Jane Goodall

  1. That is true that every day must be Earth Day. With our blood and flesh, we need Mother Nature as our only home and must care about her. Though there are a lot of conflicts, we have to try our best. If we get over our selfishness, we can manage it very easily. There is no alternative!! Thank you, dear Rebecca, for reminding us.

    1. Thank you, Aladdin for your profound comment on Earth Day. Your belief that we need to take care of nature because it’s our only home is a vibrant call to action. I agree with you wholeheartedly. As we continue to face environmental challenges, it’s essential that we all do our part in preserving the earth for future generations. Your comment serves as a reminder that every action we take, no matter how small, can make a significant impact.

    1. Many many thanks, Frank, for your encouraging comments. I agree, flowers are the best companions. As Claude Monet said many years ago, β€œI must have flowers, always, and always. I am delighted that you celebrated Earth Day 2023 with me.

    1. Many thanks for adding to this conversation. The industrial revolution brought about significant advancements in technology, transportation, and manufacturing. It allowed for mass production, which led to increased economic growth and improved living standards for many people. However, as you noted, the rapid industrialization also had a profound impact on the environment.

      The burning of fossil fuels and the release of pollutants into the air, water, and soil have led to significant environmental degradation. Deforestation, soil erosion, and loss of biodiversity are just a few of the consequences of industrialization. The effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and extreme weather events, are also a result of human activities.

      I am grateful that we are now looking forward to ways in which to mitigate the negative impact of industrialization. The development of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power, and the implementation of environmental regulations have helped to reduce pollution and protect natural resources.

      Even so, much more needs to be done to ensure a sustainable future for both humanity and the environment. I believe that we can make a difference, however small that may seem.

      I am delighted that you stopped by shared your thoughts. Very much appreciated.

    1. As you may know David Suzuki lives in Vancouver and is known for his undaunted support of environmental initiatives over the past decades. His call to action is in these words: β€œWe’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone is arguing over where they’re going to sit.” I am out of the car and walking, recyling and consuming less. Thank you so much for your visit and supportive comment.

    1. Oh Marian – it is a day of celebration all around. Many thanks for your visit and comments which are very much appreciated. I was thinking about William Shakespeare this month, especially now that we are commemorating the 400th anniversary of his First Folio. My goal this year is to continue reciting his sonnets. They bring such joy to me. April is the month of my birthday so I thought of Sonnet 73, which I recited and recorded last September.
