April 22nd is the anniversary and celebration of Earth Day, a modern environmental movement that started in 1970. Numerous events and gatherings are scheduled in my home town to mark this anniversary and to celebrate the occasion.
I have to admit that it is not the events that call me and why I wish that I was off today, but it is the solitude I yearn for, the peace and quiet as well as a visit to Mother Nature herself. I wish I could indulge in her comforting ways and drown out the noise. I will have to postpone my adventure and remember another beautiful spot for today, until I can lay down and rest, feeling deeply connected with our earth and the heartbeat to our very existence.
