I love the earth. Give me a big hug, you gorgeous hunk of matter. I love your mountains stretching up to scrape the clouds, and your surreal deserts simmering on tectonic plates of sand. I love your ample oceans caressing countless shores in constant give-and-take to make sure everything throbs and breathes. I love your washing rains that clean away the film. I even love your wind which whips, whirls, and stirs your skies in sweet release of energy. I love the vista views of the solar system that you intoxicate us with each night. I love your rumble when you clear your throat, the way you bloom your trees. And I admire the billions of lives you subsidize – the shit that you put up with. The silent way you scrape away again, and again, and again, and again.
I’m happy to be a part of this. It really is an amazing ride. I am so glad to be alive.
