Greetings, all of you who love our marvelous and endangered planet!
¬† ¬† ¬†After a very long ‘silence,’ I have decided to revive THE EARTH CONNECTION. ¬†The last time I posted here was February 2015. ¬†That was¬†when I told readers I was suspending my postings in order to devote myself fully to a run for the Virginia state senate.
¬† ¬† ¬†I didn’t win. ¬†Nonetheless, I feel very good about the run I made. ¬†I became a candidate because of my passion about climate change and my desire to find a much bigger platform to sound the alarm in defense of our Mother Earth. ¬†The campaign gave me a marvelous opportunity to do just that. ¬†I made the most of it. ¬†¬†And thanks to messaging help from my husband Andy Schmookler, my message got out there widely and boldly.
¬† ¬† ¬†Even though the election was last November, it has taken me this long to be ready to put¬†significant energy into a solitary, creative space like THE EARTH CONNECTION. ¬†Instead, I have been continuing to work, as a board member, with two organizations dedicated, in different ways, to protecting the planet–the Chesapeake Climate Action Network and¬†Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.
¬† ¬† ¬†And now I want to resume publishing THE EARTH CONNECTION.
¬† ¬† ¬†I plan to post at least once a month. ¬†I hope you will continue to follow my blog. ¬†And please spread the word if you like what you see here. ¬†Remember, it is free to subscribe to THE EARTH CONNECTION. ¬†By subscribing, you will receive an email to alert you every time there is a new ¬†EARTH CONNECTION posting. ¬†And, of course I do not share THE EARTH CONNECTION’s subscriber list with anyone.
¬† ¬† ¬†And one more thing–I am always open to posting other people’s work–poems, photos, narratives, etc. ¬†Thanks!–April Moore
