Worth Fighting For

944551_529753340425529_1022251361_nFighting for the world stops a lot of problems that we deal with every day. When we are just looking at our countries or even our communities, the scope to too narrow.  What one country does for its people may be fantastic and yet for their neighbors in a neighboring country, it may cause many trials and tribulations. This is why it is important to think of Mother Earth as what she is; a cohesive planet rotating around the sun like the other planets are doing.

We take that simple knowledge which has worked very well for millions  of years and we have divided Mother Earth. This piece goes to America. This part is Russia, this is Syria. Here is Germany, and Greenland is over here. No not there that is Iceland. Iceland belongs to us…no it is its own country. So as the millenniums and the centuries have passed we have divided and put together parts of Mother Earth over and over. Many great rulers have come and gone. They have done much to destroy Mother Earth with divisions and wars and slavery and jealousy and greed.

There is a flag flying over every inch of our planet and we watch our boundaries closely. Some will never get in and some will never leave. Our planet has a big job. It is what we stand on. It gives us a variety of fuels, and gem stones. Because we aren’t taking care of Mother Earth, there is much harsher weather coming. There are tornadoes, cyclones, hurricanes, blizzards, sandstorms. Is she trying to tell us something? I know we all couldn’t even agree on that. But remember, we human beings are responsible for this planet. She will take care of us if we take care of her. So when you look at a world globe, remember the flags are not the most important part. The most important part is that we have this beautiful planet to use, to enjoy and to love. Don’t forget to do that and Planet Earth will be here rotating on her axis for a very long time.

I Love Edinburgh!

A treat for your eyes.

Travels with the Blonde Coyote

Now this is my kind of city! Edinburgh is built on the remains of an extinct volcano. The main outlet of the volcano, known as Arthur’s Seat, towers above Old Town, while Edinburgh Castle sits on a second vent of indomitable black rock. Most of this city is carved out of dark, mafic dolerite. I love cities where the Earth is apparent underfoot, unconcealed by an overdose of concrete.

Stay tuned for another view of the city from the Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat!
