Happy Earth Day

072

Bears are not companions of men, but children of God, and His charity is broad enough for both.

Bears are made of the same dust as we, and breathe the same winds and drink of the same waters.

A bear's days are warmed by the same sun, his dwellings are over domed by the same blue sky,

and his life turns and ebbs with heart-pulsings like ours and was poured from the same fountain...

John Muir (1838-1914; naturalist, writer, and founder of the Sierra Club)

Beautiful, Annie! The bear's ability to slow down to near-death during the winter, and then be resurrected each spring is fascinating.

I have always known that I was a bear in a past life, so I feel a strong kinship with them.

Sandra, I don't know if I've ever been a bear but I too feel a kinship with them. They are probably my favorite animal (after cats and dogs, of course).

Anne:

What a wonderful post. I think bears are awesome creatures. Great photos!

Love Sandra's comment about resurrection, too.

LB:

Awww... so cute!

Happy Belated Earth Day! Every time I think of bears now, I think of Sarah Palin :{ Great photos!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, this is a wonderful post. Love John Muir's dedication to and way of words in describing all the wonderful treasures that we have on this earth. Cool photos and I love the last one with the bear's reflection. Earth Day is a wonderful celebration.
