I’m very much aware that I can now recognize the fact that I participated in a public ritual in my home town during the first observance of Earth day. It makes me proud and pleased that I did. I was just a young boy.
There has been a great deal of good work done on environmental issues since that day. However, mostly I am aware that these days I am turning away more and more from the really big issues. I am going in a direction of narrowing horizons and more limited resources. That doesn’t suit the part of me that takes up grand causes. So this Earth Day I am not doing much.
