That’s Earth! Isn’t it still wonderful, after all these billion years?!
Cheers to “Our” home! :D
Ever wondered – there are no man-made distinctions as seen from up above?
All is same and pretty. :)
So, cheers again and Happy Holidays. :)
Revision (23.01.2012): I wanted to add this quote I found on Savira’s website which she had shared via a picture. It just reflected my thoughts on this post, so here it is –
In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.
[P.S. That’s my sister in the photo above]
We all surely know what it’s like to watch the Sunrise, but how about rising Earth? That has to be just awesome and spectacular. And an impossible view for us who are on the Earth, all the time!
I had downloaded these images a long time back, around April 2009. Have a look –>
Every year, the world comes together on one night to switch off lights for Earth Hour to take a stand against climate change. And I have been doing this since 2009. So this year it’s going to be for the third time. And honestly I have noticed the increase in the level of awareness among people about this, at least around me.
Today, I got an email from the Earth Hour India Team about this year’s Earth Hour. So I thought – why not to share it!
So do come and join in.
This year, take Earth Hour 2011 beyond the hour. At 8:30 PM on 26 March 2011, switch off, PLUS commit to a personal action to benefit the environment.
I know you’ll have a lot many excuses in your mind, if not now, then definitely on the 26th. Whatsoever, please for just an hour keep them aside. I assure you that you will definitely feel great after this little contribution you would have made. I have.
Come Together! For our home! For our Earth!
The shine on the moon, silent cloud blanket lit from beneath, snow covered mountains… and rising Sun…and bright Venus welcoming it. Ah, no words.. :)
