Hildegard of Bingen, born in 1098, wrote, “If we fall in love with creation deeper and deeper, we will respond to its endangerment with passion.”  

Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring was published on this date in 1962.  Her words, which showed the dangers of DDT, mean we see pelicans flying today.  We hear birds singing. I thank Rachel Carson.

Marcel Proust wrote, “Love is space and time made perceptible to the heart.”

I just finished reading Richard Powers’ powerful book Bewilderment.  I recommend it. 

May we all work passionately to develop empathy and compassion as we fold in and out of this world of Love we share.  

So many niches to explore and bring to Heart
