“He says it doesn’t matter if you draw, or write books.

It doesn’t matter if you saw wood, or catch fish.

It doesn’t matter if you sit at home and stare at the ants on your veranda or the shadows of the trees and grasses in your garden.

It matters that you care.

It matters that you feel.

It matters that you notice.

It matters that life lives through you.”

from Hokusai Says by Roger Keyes

It’s spring! Do you feel? Do you care? What do you notice? Is life living through you? How’s your challenge going?

What problems will you seek to solve with your actions?

Soon it will be April which means Earth Month and lots of events and activities and opportunities to experience the planet and life living through you. Earth Day each year is April 22, and every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. How will YOU pARTicipate?

“You have an appointment with life, and that appointment is the present moment. If you miss the present moment you miss your appointment with life,” says Thich Nhat Hanh.
