Happy Earth Day!

April 22, 2015


Recently I spent the day with my friend at Furman. While she sat outside studying, I walked around campus taking pictures and listening to my favorite Ben Rector songs. It was so relaxing just walking around and enjoying the scenery.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.IMG_2634
