“We owe it to each other - and to our children and grandchildren -
to leave our planet in a better state than when we found it.”

Your girls are lovely to look at.

And Christopher Dodd has it right. We must take care with our Mother Earth, on Mother's Day and every day.

Sounds like the old Electric Light Orchestra, Jeff Lynn. Beautiful song & very Lennonesque, but not totally in the musical structure & orchestration, yep ELO...
A fantastic photo Ruth. This is definitely one for the family album.
But are we actually fulfilling that obligation?

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
