“Don’t just sit there- save the Earth” –Zen I read that in the back of Z.I.N. #4. The issue had come out in 1990, twenty years after the original Earth Day. The last two pages where an environmental forum and a green pledge. It resonated with me very hard. Of course by the time I got my copy it was already 2010, but it felt new to me. Perhaps because twenty years had past since then. I made a personal pledge right there on the spot to never let an Earth Day pass that I didn’t do something to make the occasion special to me. If anything to remind my self of the relation that I personally have with the world at large. As a chronic pedestrian I’ve never forgotten about her, I think picking up litter is how I became a mixed media artist. In fact I think spending time out an about the way I do has kept my soul alive through the blackest nights, and kept me cool in the brightest days. Here are some ways I would like to celebrate Earth Day today: Increase in the surface charge of my red blood cells by walking bare foot, Earthing changes the electrical activity of your brain. I’m going to go look for crystals nearby. In fact the Evergreen Nature Preserve is a fantastic place to find spoil banks from local mining. I may even dig up some red clay to play with.
