Earth standing still

Today is Earth Day and today is Good Friday.

Here we have earth sitting at the head of the table to blow out candles on one more year of pulsation. Here we have a day of the year when the earth stops between noon and 3 p.m. because this was the period that Catholics believe Jesus hung on the cross and died because we were too stupid to be good.

I think earth understands grief even if it doesn’t condone it. I think earth allows grief because it is part of itself.

I think earth deserves a cheer and a hug for being a good sport.

Happy earth day, earth!
