One Hundred Twelve: A Day to Celebrate Home

“There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.” – Marshall McLuhan 

Tuesday, April 22nd

Earth Day is no ordinary holiday. It isn’t commercialized in the same way as it’s counterparts, nor does it tend to infuse our life with the same enchanting magic or moments of reflection that more “traditional” (tongue firmly in cheek) holidays provide. It is simple and meek, and in many ways follows the natural laws of change on our planet – slow and steadfast actions which bring about change slowly over a longer period of time, often change that living creatures can adapt to more easily. It really is no wonder that this holiday is there, but not really there. Humans seem very much driven by the gratification of their desires….myself included.

In honor of this day, I’m going to list eco-minded TED talks. Please feel free to post more in the comments.

Do you feel it is important to celebrate or honor the Earth?
