Hello Earth #1

‘Hello Earth’ is a new initiative (and e-course) from Satya Robyn: to write a daily letter to the earth according to the opening words/phrases outlined here.

Here I am, in the spare room, keeping a safe distance out of the cleaner’s way. Neither I nor she wishes to catch the Virus.
Earth, you have been regenerating, I’m told, from the excess of people, now that most of us are staying indoors. 
Leaning in, I remember the love you have always given me. I always felt it, and feel it even now. The walls are not so thick as to shut it out.
Listing gratitudes, I recall lying on grass in my childhood, gazing at sky — ground that supported me, sky that seemed to look back at me kindly.
Offering myself the joy of these memories, I offer on your behalf my prayers: for people who will treat you as kindly as you treated me then, who will support you.

Satya Robyn was the creator of 'small stones' mindful writing.

  1. This is beautiful, Rosemary. In so few words, you tell a much larger story.I'm happy to learn of Satya's course.

    1. That's how we first met, through one of Satya's first out-reaches: our 'small stones'. (Smile.)
