April 21st is John Muir's Birthday
The miracle of Spring is upon us and today marks the 175th anniversary of John Muir's birth.
I am glad, for his sake, that he is not here to see what a mess we have made of our planet, but I hope his memory helps renew our fight to save it.
Throughout his life John Muir's strength of purpose and unrelenting dedication inspired many to take up his cause and act.
Action is exactly what we need now.
We've talked long enough.
"Most people are on the world, not in it ― have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them ― undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate."
~ from The Unpublished Journals of John Muir
