Today is World Earth Day and a friend sent me a quiz to see which animal I might have been. Turns out I would have been a Wooly Mammoth! “So unique, you’re technically extinct. But on the bright side, scientists hope to be able to clone you some day!” Do try the quiz (click on the red link) and let me know in the comments which animal you are!
On a more serious note, Earth Day aims to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth. Typical ways of observing Earth Day include planting trees, picking up litter, promoting recycling and conservation. It is also a day for reinforcing our call for stronger or immediate action to stop global warming and to reverse environmental destruction.
To mark the day, I have spent the morning in the garden, tending our little bit of the Earth and admiring the blowsy tulips. I am delighted to see my flower seeds sprouting. The strongest ones are the Cornflowers.
This afternoon, I have met a young couple to finalise their Wedding Ceremony which I am performing for them on Saturday. What a privilege it is to spend time with happy, loving people who are about to embark on the rest of their life together. Every one of these Ceremonies that I do is unique to the couple and as such, is especially moving and significant. This one will be in English and Swedish!
