Along the theme of connection, today I want to share with you a link to a project related to the theme of Postcards to the Earth.
In Melbourne, Austrialia, people are writing emails to individual trees.
The article begins with this example:
"My dearest Ulmus," the message began. “As I was leaving St. Mary’s College today I was struck, not by a branch, but by your radiant beauty. You must get these messages all the time. You’re such an attractive tree.”
(PS - I just looked up what an Ulmus tree is. If you see one nearby, post a photo of it below!)
The natural world is alive! Let's keep talking to it in whatever way brings meaning to you.
Postcards to the Earth will be at the ARISE Festival this weekend as part of Sustainability Village! If you go, I'd love to hear about your experience and/or see pictures! You can share them below.
If you haven't been to our website in a while, check it out! Our Events & Workshop pages have been updated, and more photos will be coming in over the next couple weeks.
Enjoy the glories of summer! I have a goal of spending at least one hour of uninterrupted time outside - hiking, sitting by the creek, laying under a tree - each week before our next newsletter. Who wants to join me in that goal?
