365 Gratitude Project – Day 109: Preparation

April 19, 2017

After a few false starts and corrections, I’m pleased to have finished my sign for the Science March for this coming Saturday. I had looked at many pictures online with ideas for signs; my focus is Conservation, both of the earth and her creatures, and the idea which struck closest to my heart was an image of the earth from space with the caption, “I’m with Her.” I adapted the idea by adding pictures of endangered species, particularly some familiar faces from Woodland Park Zoo among others, and including the caption, “…and Them!” The forecast is for rain, so I also covered the face with clear contact paper to keep my hard work dry. It isn’t perfect – you can clearly see the corrections and the pictures are a little crooked and off center, but I’m very happy with the result!


The Beauty of it All

by Celia Berrell

All we can touch, and all we see
began in cosmic history.
How long ago, came things to be?
Perhaps it was infinity.

All our surroundings hold in store
the clues to what has gone before.
A fascination long prevails
to understand time’s every tale.

Our tiny earth holds precious gifts
as through the universe it drifts.
With organisms varied, rife.
Are we alone in having life?

This special form of energy
enduring in its frailty,
bestows such beauty, all admired.
Intelligence is awe-inspired.
