Make A Pit Stop In The Rat Race

It is so easy to get caught up in the work-aholic world of the internet, if you are using it to market, or even as a communication tool to reach out to the world. When was the last time you went outside and found that there are birds singing and weeds breaking through the soil?
I live in the desert so anything breaking through the soil is appreciated for a few minutes anyway. Today’s greenery is tomorrow’s weed abatement notice. Unfortunately that is life when the government is needing more money any way they can get it.

I have been trying for the past few years to have an untamed area of my lot that is devoted to whatever wildflowers want to hang out there. It is improving. Do you know what a Mariposa is? Well I have some. I even got some pictures last year of them. I will have to find what I did with them. It is a rarer flower sort of like a poppy, but I am afraid that they are getting covered over with concrete as this area grows.

Sometimes it seems almost impossible to touch real nature, so we enjoy seeing some pictures of it on the internet. Then the skeptics among us wonder how they photo-shopped those images. Does that sound like you?

I challenge you to find some time in the next 3 months to get out there and brave the great outdoors. If you are laughing at me, it is ok. For some of us the only time we spend out in nature is the time spend walking to our car, and from our car into another building.

Earth day is coming up maybe we can all plant a tree or something, or walk instead of drive, or carpool, or just stay home that day and try not to pollute. I think staying home is a great idea. I better go see when Earth Day is. I might have missed it already. I better check on Bloggers Unite.
