What Matters: Care, Feel, Notice, Live
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?
Kicking Earth Month off with a bang is Lucidity Festival April 4-10, with permaculture and other courses from April 4-8 followed by music and workshops April 8-10. (Remember my name and get a discount!) Here’s the schedule for music, workshops, and more just released today! (Catch my “Make your own Magical Mouthwash workshop on Friday at 9am in the Family Lair!)
“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.
So let’s go! Let’s grow! Let’s pARTicipate! Subscribe to Art Predator and stay dialed in!
