Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day I thought I would list ten things I love about our planet.
  1. Color - trees, flowers, fish, you name it, there's a ton of color
  2. The sound of rocks tumbling in the surf of the ocean
  3. Animals - I am partial to furry ones
  4. Hearing the crunch of snow under feet while looking up at a massive mountain
  5. Crystal blue water with sun shining through it
  6. Birds chirping in the morning when I ride my bike
  7. Sunset in the desert leading the way for a million stars to come out
  8. A blanket of fog that makes everything it touches seem slightly mysterious
  9. A massive moon sinking into the horizon when I head out for an early run
  10. Untouched trails to run on that take me away from cars, civilization, etc.
Happy Earth Day!

Hopefully when my kids are my age, there will still be some around.

Were we separated at birth? This is nearly identical to what I would have written (if I had written a list, but you beat me to it so I guess I can't write mine now! *sigh*). Although yours is much more poetic!

I especially love to go out for a run of foggy and drizzly mornings.

That's a beautiful list.

I'd add the glistening sun sparkling on the ocean on a clear day...

Happy Earth Day!

Awesome list!!

No matter what kind of mood I'm in - running/swimming/biking in the morning and seeing the sun rise always lifts my spirits. And makes every day a great freaking day :)
