In celebration of Earth Day, our area had a terrific thunder and hail storm last night. I hope the hail didn't damage the strawberry and fruit tree crops. Today, the sun shines through the clouds, setting a shine to the trees that are leafing against beautiful grays in the clouds. A truly miraculous light that cannot be captured with a camera.
Yesterday, a friend sent me a copy of "Chief Seattle's Thoughts" by Chief Seattle of the Suquamish. It is beautiful and a reminder that we are caretakers of this earth.
