A Million Shades of Green...and You
RE is a wonderful little device and of tremendous power when we rethink our use of the secrets hidden in our language of green.
Once again my buddy and I stood at our door and observed the springtime palette of trees surrounding us. Dark green. Forest green. Spring green. New growth. Old growth. Deciduous green. Evergreen. Moss. Spring annuals at their feet. Green pine cones at their branch tips.
A million shades of green absorb the sunshine that trees drink into their cells and convert into life sustaining energy.
We don't always enjoy the silent wonders that surround us. We are overwhelmed by the glitz and glamor of moving pictures and speeding cars and digital music.
And we miss the quiet beauty of whispering leaves and the violin vibes that whistle through the limbs and lift birds to the thermals that thrill their hearts with wonder and job.
Green is about more than environmentalism. Green is about what we value enough to care for it. Like our children. We care for them even when they dirty their diapers and yell and cry and wander away from our watchful arms. We care because they are the web of life that is the unexpected weft of living wonder.
We as thinking neighbors can share our intelligence with the web of life and the little raft in space on which we life and love and respect and rethink and renew our living, pulsating world of incredible redundance and recycled richness.
We benefit when we rethink our best thoughts...again and again and again and refine our respsonse. RE: the best kept secret in our dictionaries!
