Guardians



Sempiternal


The mountains are our guardians of eternity, keeping watch over the plants and the soil. I like to think they’re keeping watch over us, too.

What can we do to repay them?

Go Toddler!
Appreciating them is a good step in the right direction..

Leah J. Utas said...

Yes, it is, Missicat.

That's exactly along the lines of what I was thinking - take better care of the earth. That includes NOT drilling for oil in nature preserves, like I heard something about on the radio yesterday..... they are planning some 1100 wells in a nature preserve somewhere. Unfortunately, I missed hearing where.

Leah J. Utas said...

Drilling in nature preserves really defeats the point of having said preserves. I believe this is in Alaska and it has a strong impact on some caribou migration route. I didn't hear the report to which you referred, but I recall hearing something last week about the Alaska plan.

Wonderful photo Leah! We can stop the drilling in preserves and we can stop the clear cutting of the forests in the National Parks and elsewhere. Do more to get old cars off the roads.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. Yes we can.

Oh, what a gorgeous picture of the mountains. And I love what you said about them being our guardians. I pay homage to them regularly, as you know -- it's one of life's most precious gifts to go there and feel their peace.

Leah J. Utas said...

Yes, TL. I know how much you love and respect and cherish them. I wish more of us did.
Thanks re: the pic.
