I Almost Missed It
If I had to rely on the newspapers, television, or apparently most regular media, I wouldn’t have known that today was Earth Day.
the LA Times only had an article about a $60 lightbulb for Earth Day on
their front page. People in the comment sections picked up on this $60
lightbulb story and used it as their argument against saving energy. If
they had read the story, (and some of the other comments), they would’ve found that that $60 lightbulb only
costs $10 at Home Depot.
The flowers around the Treehouse celebrated Earth Day with new blooms of riotous color.
I saw some of the Washington DC Earth Day celebration on the computer. There was a website
that was streaming the event live. I could see that the weather was not
cooperating but a few people were brave enough to stand in the driving
rain to see performances by Dave Mason, Cheap Trick, several other
performers, activists, and politicians that showed up to lend their
support to Earth Day.
they should have the national Earth Day event take place in California
where the weather is more inviting for people to go outdoors and
a couple of Earth day gatherings here in Redding today. There was one
at the Win River Casino parking lot with vendors, music, and
exhibitions. That started at 8 AM and ended at 2 PM.
2 PM is about the time I get going out of the house, so I didn’t get over there to see that.
Instead I wandered around the Treehouse and enjoyed this place where I live on this magical planet we call Earth.
