The View from the Front Yard

may 13-14.jpgThere it is, Friends. Just waiting!

The blue stickpin at the bottom of the picture is my home; the one two-thirds of the way up, just short of the river, is where I stay tomorrow (Saturday) night, and the one near the top, across the river, is where I stay the second night (Sunday). Then it’s off across Iowa — the road heading straight out off the top left corner.

On the big map of the total journey, which you can view at my web site, www.earthwitness.org, in the section titled “Maps”, these first two days are just that tiny downward squiggle at the left end.

Tomorrow will be one of only three days on my itinerary when I spend the whole day walking through an urban area. (The other two will be in Peoria and in Dayton.) How much of intact nature can I hope to see in such an urban walk? How much harmony with nature will I see?

I’ve been trying to stay aware of the word “earth.” The concept that has been resonating most deeply for me is the image of the fertile and solid ground beneath my feet, how I am one of its fruit and how I am held up by it, like being held in the Light.

Each day, while the earth holds you up during your journey, I will take some time to hold you and your family in the Light. Go with God, Friend Marshall!

The map makes such a big impression. I also will take time to hold you and your family in the Light. God Bless You Marshall!

Judy, I’m still chewing on what “earth” means, too!

Thank you both for your loving attention –
