The Magnolia is my favorite tree this time of year. I watch for her to come into bloom faithfully every late March though mid April. Why are some forms of life like the Magnolia blossom both so exquisite and so fragile? Why are they often so delicate and so quick to transition?

Perhaps the Magnolia’s fragility and delicacy are reminders that what is regarded as ephemeral requires respect, awe, and care. Our planet is not ephemeral, in fact the Earth is amazingly resilient. However, resilience cannot be mistaken for immunity from neglect, indifference, or lack of appreciation. Gaia contains many mysteries and secrets at her core, just like all the life forms that spend time here. Let’s honor her sacred splendor with respect, awe, and care.  Happy Earth Day!

  1. Mmm, magnolias are so wonderful. Do you know the perfume Anais Anais? The smell always brings back the memories of first love for me.
    I am also reminded of the amazing film Magnolia. I need to see it again!
