Something that living on Maple Lake each summer reminded me of was how much we are connected with the earth. From the experience of quite literally going weeks without wearing shoes, feeling with each step the ground beneath my feet, to taking the pail and going “down the hill” to fetch drinking water for our next meal, to the great care we had to take in regard to our septic system–there were always concrete reminders that nature was valued. There was a synchronicity I felt then and to a degree do now–though now it feels like I have to make more of a conscious effort to actually be in sync with my environment. Whether that means sorting my trash and garbage into 4 different types and disposing of each in a distinct way or fretting about the impact that my dishwater might have if it somehow makes it’s way down to the lake, every day there are choices to be made about how I will interact with our Earth.
In this spirit I’d like to remind you all of one of many wonderful events and exhibitions that can inspire and motivate you to be a guardian of planet Earth.
The Green Legacy
