- When you go for your morning coffee, many places will let you bring your own clean reusable cup to use instead of disposable.
- Turn out lights and open curtains. This time of year is great for lots of light and longer days.
- Turn off your airconditioner and open your windows.
- Fill in your weekly menu with salads and sandwiches and let your stove (whether electric or gas) rest.
- Turn off your heat; it’s April! (This one might specifically be for me.)
In 2017, my friend Brother Mickey McGrath took Pope Francis’ Encyclical, Laudato Si’ and created a wonderful visual meditation using the Pope’s words and Brother Mickey’s art. It is just breathtaking. I would highly recommend reading and exploring it, especially if you can do it outdoors with the breeze ruffling your hair and the leaves on the trees.
Our Common Home is published by World Library Publications. From the back cover:
Our Common Home invites us to slow down, look areound us, and remember that all we see has been granted to us and is in our care.
In honor of the March for Science, held today across the country, a little word art. There are two women’s names that I’ve listed with only a last initial. Those are two women scientists I know in my personal life. They are an inspiration to me in more ways than one, and certainly more than just scientifically.
We all have those girls and women in our lives.
