Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Arts & Environment
Ed Hessler

Good morning from the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) at Hamline University, St. Paul, MN, April 8, 2022, the 98th day of the year -  2352 hours or  26.85% to date. Sunrise is at 6:40 am and sunset is at 7:49 pm giving us 13h 09m 03s of sunlight during which we are likely to see the sun. This week has marked our third mid-week rain, fog, mist, snow which is to end today with blue, cottony white and what snow there is on roofs and the ground to melt. The moisture though has been needed and is welcome. And yet another storm is shaping up for mid-week! Too early for those details.

Foodimentary marks National Empanada Day with a tempting photograph, some facts about them  (more tempting photographs) and food history among which we find the birthday of "Catfish" Hunter. 
For National Day it is National All Is Ours Day which is not quite as self-centered as it  might first appear. It is, instead, "a day devoted to appreciating all the things of beauty and nature around us."  There is the usual full description -  history, things to do, etc.

Quote. "Eric told me he wanted to share his America because he feared how little we have come to understand each other. The divide between city and country, once just a crack in the dirt was now a chasm into which objects, people, grace, and love all fell and disappeared.” -- Marie Mutsuki Mockett, American Harvest: God, Country, and Farming in the Heartland

Today's poem is by Bruce Bennett.
