Earth Day is 365 Days Every Year

I do not hold to only April 22nd each of being the only Earth day. To me part of my path as a Witch is being an environmentalist 365 days every year.

Since I could walk as a 1year old child I was taught to enjoy the boutiful eye candy Mother Earth freely gives to us each and every day. I was also taught to bring at that time a very small trash bag to put the liter in that we would pick up trash that others left behind. Even at this young age it pissed me off.

Fast forward a few years to when I was around 3 years old and my family would go camping. Here I was taught to leave our campsite cleaner than we found it before setting up our big tent. But here my parents made a game out of it…whoever picked up the most trash, rocks, twigs, etc got an extra toasted marshmallow that evening. I know now that they always conspired to let me win.

Fast forward again to when I was around 9 years old attending Brownie Girl Scout day camp. By this time whenever I left my home I carried a bag to pick up after litter bugs, a new name I had just figured out what it meant. My dear mom was the leader of my regular troup but at day camp she just did art projects with the girls for many troups. She was surprised during a lunch break whenn she was told I was causing quite a stir with passing out small garbage bags to eevery girl saying in each class, “My mom always says we have to remember to leave the place we learn at and the hiking trails we walk cleaner than we found them.” I was even giving all the adults bags.

Fast forward to me being a mother and instilling the same message to my childern who have carried it on with their children.

The noral of this story is “Always leave whatever part of Mother Earth you travel through especially on foot cleaner than you found it.”

Blessed be dear ones.

#ChalkTheWalk

I was finally able to take a real walk today. It was marvelous even with overcast skies! Before I left I listened to the USA’s NBC channel nightly news and there was a heart touching short segment of children writing cute and some inspirational messages in pictures and words. When I took my fur girls out for their 1st walk with me in over 3 weeks (sprained wrist than overlapped a mild case of COVID-19) I noticed this type of chalk art on the sidewalk in the direction we walk. Uplifting statements like “Be brave”, “Your with family”, and “Sing a song” are just a sampling of what was written. This inspired me to join children and adults across the country to write my own message. I uploaded it on Instagram on the 1st #chalkthewalk. Please join the children, adults, and myself in leaving a message for others. If anyone can make a # with the name #PagansChalkTheWalk please email me at covenlifescoven@gmail.com so we can talk about setting up the # tag today Friday, April 3rd. Thank you!

Please keep those on the front lines taking care of infections people. Many doctors, nurses, and everyone else in the hands on part of caring for people with COVID-19 worldwide that haven’t been home in weeks or months because of their tiring mostly thankless job they have choosen to do. Blessings of staying healthy to you all.

It says “Think Positive with a heart in the middle of the Sun.” The picture is to bring light and love to others. My heart child PynkMoon inspired the picture part.
