“You can’t put the milk back in the cow, Opie”… and other thoughts on Earth Day

The following may be my favorite quote in relation to Earth Day:

Aunt Bea: “Opie, you haven’t finished your milk. We can’t put it back in the cow, you know.”

Happy Earth Day, all! To put it simply: I love the Earth, I love a quote quote, and I’ve written a good bit about Earth Day over the years. Here are a few links:

“Sometimes you just gotta hug a tree” (2013)

“Celebrate Earth Day by reaffirming connections to each other” (2015)

“The power of our places” (2017)

I hope you enjoy them. And I hope, wherever you are, you get outside today, and every day.
