The temperature reached 50 degrees in New York City.  Our dog was activated.  He held his head high as he scanned the open field before him, looking for a playmate, sniffing the air replete with the odor of emergent plant life.  A red-breasted robin moved his head side to side while hopping toward a fallen log.  Will people begin to feel better now that the winter is recedes?

The longer days already invite more contact with other people.

We are not separate from each other, this earth and us.  We impact each other daily.

Starting today, I will be tracking small everyday interactions that take place between humans and nature, between  our ordinary selves and our ordinary earth, and thinking about what prevents us from taking care of ourselves, each other and our planet.
