- Earth Day Network provides information on how to take action and become involved in environmental programs.
- The United Nations declared April 22 as International Mother Earth Day and lists Earth Day events worldwide.
As a writer and avid reader, I hope you will join me in celebrating this event by giving away a book to someone in need, or sorting through your bookshelves and donating your no-longer needed books to people or organizations who can benefit from your gift, or simply sharing a book you love with a friend.
To people like us books are precious. Personally, they give me comfort, like a trusted friend. What are some of your most treasured books? How have they impacted your life? Share those books with another and trust that their life will expand exponentially as a result of your generosity.
Dance is expressive of any and all emotions. And it is often associated with celebrating. I agree. It’s celebrating our aliveness – that no matter what we are experiencing, it’s something worth dancing about. So join me in dancing this week! For more information about dance week you can go to: http://www.nationaldanceweek.org/ Or, do a web search for “dance week, your city, state” and learn about the local opportunities for you to get out and dance for free and to get free.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay area, check out: http://bayareandw.org/ for a listing of over 500 free dance classes, performances and events happening between 4/24-5/3.
So, whether you’re celebrating the Earth, books, or your body in motion, here’s to the preciousness of your life and all of life!
